Venture Labs are powerhouses for startup innovation. Beyond merely providing resources, they refine raw ideas into thriving startups. With the advent of AI, Venture Labs have been early adopters, ensuring their startups leverage cutting-edge technology to stay ahead of market curves.

"The biggest value comes from both ideation and execution of what we need, which is technical differentiation." – Keith Rosema, Partner at Madrona Venture Labs

Customer Story – Madrona Venture Labs

Madrona came to Tribe for:

  • On-demand subject matter expertise to provide technical differentiation to early stage companies
  • Speed of execution

Madrona Venture Labs provides technical expertise and funding to early-stage founders, with the goal of helping them find product-market fit in a shorter timeframe. With this goal in mind, Madrona had an ongoing need to supplement their early stage founding teams with deep expertise in specific technical areas. 

“We find founders that have a great product idea and often technical knowledge, but if you’re trying to bake deep tech into an idea from the start, you need specialists in a particular area to round a team out,” said Keith Rosema, Partner at Madrona. “Which is why we engaged Tribe.” 

“Now, I can come to Tribe and say I need to augment this team, describe the problem, and then a week later Tribe comes back to me with 3 subject matter experts,” said Keith. “The expertise is important, but so is the speed of execution. In venture, a month can make a huge difference.”

In the evolving tech landscape, AI presents both opportunities and challenges for Venture Labs. Tribe AI provides a solution, helping these labs seamlessly integrate AI into their startups. Get in touch to find out how Tribe AI can help equip your ventures for the future,
