Gradient Ventures is an ROI-focused venture fund. Our sole mission is to support the most talented founders building AI-powered companies. We have been tech founders before, and we understand what it takes to start with an idea and build a transformative company. While artificial intelligence has been around for a long time, most AI companies are just getting started, which is why we primarily invest in early-stage rounds. We provide our portfolio companies with access to domain experts in the fields of AI from systems and applied AI to deep learning and machine learning techniques. These senior engineers and product specialists are part of our Startup Residency Program, which is designed to supercharge development teams and help companies move fast. From helping companies build scalable analyses and techniques to delivering production models to market, we will help accelerate your progress. When Gradient Ventures makes an investment, the new portfolio company enters a talented peer group of founders and AI experts. Were committed to helping develop this community: From meetups to educational events, and from office hours to fireside chats, companies can leverage our strong network of entrepreneurs, engineers, and advisors to grow and learn from each other.
