We invest in the wise development of transformative technologies.

Our approach

Lionheart Ventures is a venture capital firm focused on mitigating civilizational risk. We do this by supporting the wise development of transformative technologies.

Our main areas of investment focus are safe artificial intelligence and frontier mental health technologies.

Leading academics estimate a 1-in-6 chance of human extinction by the year 2100, largely driven by risks from emerging technologies. And now, with the exponential growth of AI, predictions are getting worse.

Our startups are part of the solution.

We invest in exceptional, ethical founders who are developing transformative technologies that have the potential to impact humanity on a meaningful scale, while generating attractive returns for our LPs.

If we continue to accumulate only power and not wisdom, we will surely destroy ourselves.

Our methodology

Mental health

The current mental health crisis impacts both our quality of life and our ability to collectively make wise decisions for the future. We invest in frontier technologies such as psychedelic medicine and neuromodulation that can dramatically improve the standard of care available today. 

Safe artificial intelligence

The emergence of advanced AI will be more disruptive than the Industrial Revolution. We are pioneering the category of AI safety investing – by carefully deploying capital towards the development and alignment of advanced AI, we contribute to ensuring that this transition goes well.
