See more about us and our full portfolio @ www.boldstart.vc and @boldstartvc Our Investment Themes: Rise of the Developer Enterprises are replatforming and moving from legacy to cloud-native architectures at a rapid pace. Digital transformation is driven by infrastructure spend and one of the most powerful forces is the "rise of the developer" and all of the developer services, open source software, and tools they will need to drive this sea change. With the underlying infrastructure in place, the pace of app development and open APIs will drive a new era of interconnected businesses. Security by Design With new platforms comes new attack vectors; new approaches to cyber security are required. Security is now a corporate board priority. From Dev Ops to Infrastructure to Applications, security will be designed at earlier and earlier stages of production, shifting left and earlier in the design phase. Intelligent Automation The automation of the workplace is in its beginning stages driven by advances in compute power like GPUs and TPUs for machine learning. This evolution has started with next-gen robotic processes (RPA) and is moving towards a more intelligent and cognitive layer driven by AI. Over time we will see companies leveraging proprietary data sets to deliver more vertical applications and efficiencies. Design & Intelligent First Apps Were in a new era of design centric SaaS applications giving enterprise users consumer-like and joyful experiences. Were moving to a world where assembling your own best of breed suite of tools is coming with easy API integration. Most of this will come from reinventing existing SaaS applications which are >10 years old and some will come from inventing completely new categories. Our portfolio includes Superhuman, Kustomer, and Front.
