    Across Our Portfolio

    Design Accelerator

    Design is a bridge between man and machine, transitioning analog experiences to digital ones. Exceptional design and engineering will produce compelling products and ultimately, successful companies.

    8VC fosters a vibrant design community across our portfolio, mentoring and guiding our companies to build design teams.

    Data Science

    We view data science as a powerful tool for making decisions. Data gives us the ability to harness past experiences and knowledge to understand and predict future events.

    With enough data – such as the microbiome of thousands of people or flight data from electric VTOL aircraft – we can quickly develop new and crucial answers to give our companies an edge in moving quickly in the right direction.
