Investing in The Future of Work
Workbox Ventures is a Seed and Series A fund that backs startups that empower hybrid and distributed teams to succeed. Their inspiration for the fund is the thousands of current and future Workbox members who make hybrid work part of their competitive advantage.
These teams can’t reach high performance with legacy systems, tools, and processes. They turn to the next generation of Future of Work solutions brought to market by new ventures. We invest in those ventures – those that power the Future of Work for hybrid and distributed teams around the world.
The way Workbox Ventures works has changed dramatically in the past three years, and more change is ahead. Some see the changes as a disruption to existing norms, and others see them as an opportunity. Workbox Ventures sees both. Join us for a discussion of how disruption leads to opportunity for those willing to dive into the "Future of Work."
- The Way We Work: What’s changed. Timely stats & stories about just how much of our work routines have changed and adapted.
- Winners & Losers: Who stands to gain, and who stands to lose, in the emerging Future of Work.
- When It’s Messy: The role of venture capital and early-stage technology companies when there is a trend that is still “messy,” i.e., still daily learning / iterating / experimenting about what the eventual technologies, traditions, and tools will be.
