Investment Themes

At Yellow, we seek entrepreneurs who are building AR applications, or companies in industries that can be transformed by AR. We don’t require companies to build on top of Snap, but we do seek companies who have an aligned vision for the power that AR can unlock. These include:

Utility

We believe there are AR experiences that provide tremendous utility by solving practical problems. Some examples include language translation, spatial measurements, and scanning the world around you.

Entertainment, Self Expression, and Games

The puppy dog lens may have gotten the party started, but we believe there’s so much more that AR can do to entertain people. Whether that’s through art, music, games, self expression, and more!

Health and Fitness

We believe AR can transform our fitness journey. Whether that’s through social experiences, data, education, or beyond - we’re eager to partner with founders thinking about new ways AR can help us live healthier lives.

Commerce

AR is already changing the way we shop. From virtual try-on, all the way through purchase. We are bullish on the future of AR driven commerce, and are looking for companies who are helping to transform the way we experience shopping and commerce.

Education

There is tremendous potential in visual and experiential learning. Yet most of our learning is still done through text. We’d love to talk to you if you’re thinking about new ways we can learn when computing is overlaid on the world!
If you have a vision for or are building a company that is innovating within one or more of these themes - we want to chat!
