Look AI Ventures fund (LAIV) is the first investment fund in the Czech Republic that focuses exclusively on AI startups worldwide and provides new investors with the opportunity to seek the high returns that AI businesses promise.
LAIV is built on the foundation of the AI Startup Incubator (AISI). In Q4 2022, AISI became a subsidiary of the LAIV and merged its existing portfolio, expertise, resources, scouting, and evaluation processes into the new fund structure. LAIV's investment in AI startups is made "smart" by using AISI's demonstrated capabilities and network.
Rising demand and investment in AI development made the global Artificial Intelligence market one of the fastest-growing sectors in the tech industry. According to PwC, the combination of increased productivity and consumption side effects of AI could contribute up to $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030.
Our goal is to nurture the AI startup ecosystem by investing in a new portfolio of promising early-stage AI startups and following up on investment done by AI Startup Incubator.
