Cabot global investments is a thesis-driven early-stage venture fund focused exclusively on the human capital technology sector. Our strategy is to source off-market opportunities through our network and take early risk in businesses, investing where we can add significant value through applying and sharing the combined experience that our network has in founding, scaling and exiting companies.
As the pace of workforce transformation and adoption accelerates, we believe there is a window of opportunity for early-stage investment into technologies that will support businesses across all regions and industries achieve the vision for the future of work, ranging from the development of new applications for remote working to the adoption of common skills taxonomies across business and education.
Thematic Venture Capital
As enterprise technology shifts the boundary between the work performed by people and the work by machines and algorithms, companies are rapidly adopting new and emerging technologies to reach higher levels of employee efficiency and to compete with a global workforce composed increasingly of digital natives remote workers.
We believe this change provides an opportunity for companies to expand labour productivity across industries, and to shift the axis of competition from a focus on automation-based labour cost reduction to an ability to leverage technologies as tools to complement and enhance human labour. Two core themes guide our investment activity;
1 – THE FUTURE OF WORK – Cognitive technologies that have a profound impact on jobs, the labour market and the workplace.
2 – THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION – Innovative technologies supporting lifelong learning and the ability to acquire new skills quickly.
