This season, we are focusing on the intention economy.

Competition for our attention has never been more fierce, yet we see a change on the horizon. The bar for what we spend our scattered attention on will rise with the emergence of intelligent agents and other technologies that will compete on understanding and delivering outcomes in response to our intentions.

This vision spans markets—media, social, e-commerce, search, and creative and productivity tools—as well multiple layers in the software stack from protocols to applications.

This vision spans markets—media, social, e-commerce, search, and creative and productivity tools—as well multiple layers in the software stack from protocols to applications.

Here are a few examples of what we’re excited about:

  • Augmenting humans' capability and creativity through intelligent agents

  • Web3 infrastructure and apps that emphasize solving acute need around finance, markets, and payments

  • New commerce and distribution models that change how people shop, discover, and encounter advertising online

  • Infrastructure for privacy, especially novel, consumer focused applications of zero knowledge technology

  • Infrastructure for authenticity and verification of people, AI models, and the “supply chain” of visual or text content

  • Decentralized identity, authentication, accounts, and wallets

  • New models of organizing and organizations
