Bow was formed to accelerate the trillions of dollars of value creation triggered by the transition to a new era, Civilization 3.0— an era where data, ideas, and imagination are the raw materials used to create the companies that will lead the future. Bow identifies platform companies in industries being transformed by technology with the potential to impact billions of lives.
The Bow ecosystem
Our affiliation with the University of California links entrepreneurs to a massive pool of resources. But the combination of this relationship with our broader range of connections—in healthcare, fintech, AI, entertainment, government and beyond—makes the real difference. Bow companies have direct access both to revolutionary academics and industry-changing titans.
Better healthcare. The path to faster, cheaper, and more personalized diagnosis and effective treatment is becoming nonlinear.
Transformative technology. Many large offline industries are only now becoming fully digitized, with vast implications for logistics, climate change solutions, and financial services.
AI/ML revolution in enterprise. While every company today is working to become a software company, this is rapidly becoming an imperative to be an AI/ML company, as well.
Scientific and technological ideas take time to become products and services people need.
We invest at the first sign of product-market fit—late seed through late A. And our roadmap-driven investing approach lets us identify that fit before it’s obvious.
