DCA’s Approach to AI Investment
Artificial Intelligence is one of the most exciting technology trends of the 21st century. To capitalize on this opportunity, DCA has invested in AI-based technologies that have enabled: conversational AI, moderation of Q&A and peer-to-peer communications within digital learning communities, and intent-based communication platforms, among others.
We are diving deeper into technologies and trends around: Generative AI, Sustainable AI, and more broadly, how AI can help expand the productivity of human capital in sectors like healthcare, education, and media with tools that create better data, processing, and insights.
Our experience as consumers of technology, and investors in technology-based companies has taught us that in many industries, the most powerful combination will be the hybrid workforce. Embracing this will create less barriers to the adoption of AI-based technologies, unlock efficiencies, and potentially increase skills-based opportunities across the board.
DCA's Crossover Strategy
Crossover investing is a key trend across the capital markets and an important component to DCA's approach to AI investment. Put simply, a venture capital crossover fund is one that invests in both private and publicly traded companies, such as funds that hold onto some or all of their portfolio companies after they go public. DCA fully expects crossover investing to be a long-term trend that will play a prominent role in shaping the future of venture capital for a variety of reasons.
