Worklife, one year later

culture, technology, work in a world that’s drastically shifted

Dear friends,

I founded Worklife this time last year to build and back companies that make work more creative, flexible, and well… human.

We’re the first venture capital designed for a new era.
Where work is more creative and anyone can start something.
Where life is more flexible and not tied to an office.

Where everyone is a triple threat.

To deliver on these values and invest in our community, we’re hosting a three day event for investors, founders and builders & creators from all industries.

Think of it as Sun Valley meets SXSW, upbeat talks with musical performances.

We’ve gathered a lineup of speakers and events spanning the worlds of business, VC, and culture to speak directly to the challenges and questions we face in a world that’s drastically shifted over the last several months—and we want you to be a part of the conversation. 

RSVP for events here

Thank you for your ongoing support and I hope to see you all next week.

Brianne
