VITALIZE was formed in 2018 as a $16M seed-stage venture fund and now includes both a $25M Fund II as well as a 450+ member angel investing community open to everyone. Our community approach allows us to add value through our active, diverse network of investors and advisors.
We define WorkTech as people-first, data-driven, category-defining businesses in future of work software.
The specific themes we track include next generation hiring models, new landd/skilling platforms, infrastructure to support the growing freelance economy, and people engagement/retention/analytics solutions. Finally, we are also bullish on companies that have developed AI and data-driven horizontal or vertical platforms that truly revolutionize workflows for employers and employees.
