We believe we are seeing profound changes in the way business works. Our investor, Bloomberg L.P., wants to support and understand these changes. Backing and building startups is a wonderful way to do that, so we created Bloomberg Beta.
Bloomberg Beta is an early-stage venture firm backed by Bloomberg L.P., investing out of a $75M fund focused broadly on the future of work.
While we invest for financial return and choose our investments independently, without preference for companies who have or want a relationship with Bloomberg, we do see Bloomberg as a template for startups — founded on a powerful idea, bringing transparency to markets, achieving global scale, with a strong and open culture that embraces technology, led by its founders for decades.
We see founders as our customers, and we believe transparency is the first step to building trust with them. Our full web presence can be found on our GitHub, where we’ve open sourced our operating manual on who we are, how we think, and the questions we ask ourselves when evaluating startups.
