About Union Labs
At UNION, we work alongside entrepreneurs to apply deep technologies to real-world problems, leading to intelligent homes, smarter cities, and healthier lives.
Founded by serial entrepreneurs, angel investors and August Home alums Nate Williams and Chris Kim, Union brings both technical depth and go-to-market expertise to help de-risk the critical path to product/market fit.
Who We Are —
We both back and build companies, either through venture capital investment or a structured EIR program with corporate connections
We Help Solve Real-World Problems with Applied DeepTech
We focus on the enabling technologies of IoT, AI, Robotics and Automation
We find opportunities at the commercial application of technology to vertical industries in the physical world
How We’re Different —
We Differ in the Way that Help, Not the Sector in Which We Play.
- We are an active, aligned, and proactive partner, helping founders get to the next round faster by focusing on product/market fit.
- We are all about getting our hands dirty and working alongside our founders.
We Both Invest and Co-Create
We believe in a more craft approach to new company formation building alongside our portfolio founders and entrepreneurs-in-residence
Build with us – no idea is too early for our model and we stand ready to become “first check in”
We Go Equally Deep in Technology and Go-To-Market Expertise
- We invest in core technologies and understand product development from the ground up, but also bring unique experience in go-to-market sales and marketing to help our founders scale fast, build strong cultures, and straighten the path to product/market fit.
It Takes a UNION
We bring together Fortune 500 companies, VCs and entrepreneurs to fund and support the right teams.
We provide access to corporate customers, Sand Hill VCs, and large technology communities (for example, the IoT Consortium, Founders Den). The best things happen when people come together and collaborate whether in person or via Zoom!
We help founders find success at the intersection of technical readiness and market adoption.
