Where the World’s Best Come to Build Dominant Companies

The DataTribe Foundry leverages deep experience and expertise to build and launch successful product companies. The team is a mix of Silicon Valley and Intelligence Community founders, investors, and experienced entrepreneurs. We know what it takes to build a company, but more importantly, we understand the world our startup founders are coming from. We put real firepower behind every idea.

DataTribe starts relationships with seed stage companies by making an investment and accepting them into The Foundry. We continue to support companies through follow-on investments as they mature out of the Foundry into their growth stage.

Our Commitment to Startup Success

The Foundry


DataTribe goes beyond traditional investors and incubators to fuel your startup’s growth by providing significantly more early-stage capital. We also offer approximately $1M in invaluable in-kind services, such as free office space and exclusive rates for legal, accounting, IT, and more.


We are your strategic partner for co-building your company’s success. Our team, composed of former founders and high-level CXOs, works alongside you, offering expertise in core areas such as product management, go-to-market strategies, lead generation, and marketing. Follow our DataTribe playbook to chart your course from startup to market leader.


DataTribe stands at the crossroads of three powerful networks: executives at leading global companies, the dynamic Bay Area venture capital community, and the esteemed Intelligence Community and national labs. We marshal the full potential of these networks, expediting our portfolio companies’ journey to market success while bolstering access to talent and capital.
