Business Description

betaworks believes in the power of the real-time social web. We believe that the popularity of the real-time and social aspects of the web represent a radical shift in how people use and interact with the Internet. The future is about dynamic streams of information, not static pages. It's about push, not pull; it's about enabling publishing tools and data; and it's about the ways we touch, experience and interact with the Internet and each other. With this as our focus, we build and invest in great companies. We represent a new way to grow companies. Because we are not a fund, we can invest more flexibly in ideas. The companies that we build and work closely with are core to the betaworks vision. betaworks makes seed-stage investments in the ecosystem of the realtime web. To us, seed investing means "first money in." Our typical investment size is $150,000-200,000. We sometimes invest as part of a syndicate of angels and early stage VCs. Our requirements from an investment perspective are simple, though narrow. Investments must be early stage, heavily tech focused, and have a working (public or private) prototype.
