Every week our team does an internal huddle where we share the most disruptive and interesting startups and emerging technologies from around the world. The only rule, is that they can’t directly solve a current client challenge. This way we retain our super-power of spotting creative adjacencies and disruptive outer-horizon solutions. I thought you might like a glimpse behind the VentureFuel curtain…
JOKR - Get groceries 🥕🥩🥑 to your door in 15 minutes. A “ghost kitchen” for groceries – JOKR leverages micro-fulfillment centers 🏢 and data to estimate what people want, stock local inventory, and deliver within minutes.🕚
SQUAREAT- Minimize your grocery needs through ready to eat 🍽 + portion controlled meals – all in the form of squares of course.◼️◻️😊
Sequoia Fund - Legendary VC firm Sequoia Capital announced a new change to their 💰 fund structure – moving away from a 🔟 year cycle into an overarching fund with no expiration date⌚. This new fund will be comprised of public stocks that feed into sub-funds with a more traditional VC equity structure, allowing for a continuous loop of returns 🔄🤑.
Tala- Microloans 💸 for people in emerging markets with little to no credit history. Leveraging consumer data (include📱texts, merchant transactions, and behavior data), Tala can approve loans within minutes 🕓 and disperse the money though mobile payment platforms.
Nix Color Sensor - a sensor that identifies the 🎨 color of objects and walls around you for all your future painting needs. 🖌
We do this every week, to insure we are ahead of our clients’ needs. OF course, for client work, every startup is deep-vetted and selected to solve for the KPIs that drive impact.
If you have 20 minutes, I would love to discuss how startups can solve your current business challenges in new ways and how VF can be your secret weapon. Book a time with me here.
