Trust and Safety: From a Small Niche to Everyone’s Problem
As venture capitalists, we are in the business of constantly hunting for the future of, well, pretty much everything. But although innovation is all around us, it is rare that we come across an opportunity to not only invent a new product, feature, service, or business model, but rather to be part of the launch of a new trailblazer service in a new business vertical which is set to make a paradigm shift in the modern world. Lately, thanks to Grove Ventures’ newest investment in ActiveFence, my team and I were lucky enough to witness such a creation from the front row, with the rapid acceleration of the Trust and Safety industry. This is going to be an in-depth dive into the subject and my thesis (longer than my usual, as this is a new territory for many). So sit back, relax, and get ready to understand why the world is about to witness a Trust and Safety technology boom.
