Next Tier Ventures will focus its activity on artificial intelligence startups in Europe, the USA, and Latin America and is led by Patricia Pastor and Ruben Colomer.
Based in Valencia and Miami, Next Tier Ventures’ potential is to help startups be born global from the outset, building a strategic bridge between the two cities to facilitate the growth of their startups.
Both General Managers are well-known for their career in the tech scene. With many projects created and invested in, and as initiators of the first ecosystems created in Spain, this time they have decided to come together and fully commit to the technology that will change everything – artificial intelligence. «We have always liked to ride the upcoming wave, and we have already surfed quite a few, but this one will deeply impact our lifestyle, our economy; it will be a paradigm shift, and this commitment is to live it from its beginnings, which gives us an advantage,» says Patricia Pastor, founder and GP of Next Tier Ventures.
The data confirms it: in 2022, global private investment in artificial intelligence reached $136.5 billion, and since May of last year, only 5 of the companies sold exceeded 25 billion. Artificial intelligence is a significant long-term investment opportunity, as it has the potential to transform entire industries. All sectors will be affected by advances in this field.
«After 5 years of investing in Artificial Intelligence, and seeing the emerging generative AI startups, we realize that the impact will be as significant as the Internet in the 90s, and we want to be part of this new future,» says Rubén Colomer, co-founder and GP of Next Tier Ventures.
