PRUDENCE Logo


Building a
Technology-First World.

Prudence invests in transformative software companies across multiple verticals, including construction, real estate, infrastructure and climate/energy adaptation.

Our Areas of Focus

Investing in enhanced
data capabilities
to power
autonomous business processes.

Data Infrastructure
Layer

Enormous volumes of data can now be ingested, aggregated and disseminated at scale, creating unique and defensible data assets. Additionally, emerging API infrastructure is unlocking new business formation across the verticals we support, and we back teams who are driving these innovations.

Artificial Intelligence Enablement

AI applications are leveraging data volumes to train models to solve problems or make decisions that otherwise would require human intelligence. We focus on solutions across the diverse field of AI, including those involving computer vision, robotics, predictive modeling and generative AI.

Autonomous Vertical SaaS

As workflows become digitized, leading vertical SAAS companies will leverage proprietary data not previously or publicly available. We invest behind founders who are leading the migration away from human capital intensity, beyond just human capital productivity gains, towards fully autonomous business processes.

Portfolio Highlights

Our Team

We are passionate about sharing our experience, insights and curiosity with our founders to help them build iconic companies.
