Launched in 2019 by Brianne Kimmel, Worklife is the first venture capital firm designed for the new era of builders, creators, and individual contributors. At the forefront of Worklife’s narrative is the idea that the future of work will be the end of traditional jobs and empowering anyone to start their own business or creative empire from anywhere. By putting the power of agency and creativity back into the hands of everyday individuals, Worklife is revolutionizing access to the creator economy, remote and freelance work, as well as the future of small businesses. The firm was founded in September 2019 and has backed 7 unicorns in its first two years in business including Hopin, Clubhouse, Public, Webflow, Tonal, Deel, and Pipe.

“I started Worklife to reimagine work alongside thoughtful founders, building new opportunities for every creator, designer, developer and individual who uses the tech we've backed. Prior to starting the firm, I was an angel investor on evenings and weekends.I write high conviction checks in early stage companies & build systematic programs to help technical founders with go-to-market. If you're actively raising, I make investment decisions in 24-48 hours.”
