Axel Bichara

Co-Founder and General Partner at Bolt

I have been an entrepreneur, investor, and company builder my whole career. My first company was a venture backed MIT spin-out I co-founded as an engineer when I was 23 years old.

I am here to help founders realize their vision with capital, but more importantly with company building expertise I have acquired from leading investments in more than 100 companies, more than 40 private and public boards of directors, and from the creation of many billions of dollars of enterprise value.

Writing entrepreneurs their first check as lead investor and partnering to build great companies is the essence of venture capital, it’s where the highest returns are generated, and where the closest bonds with entrepreneurs are built. That’s what I do.

I work very closely with my investing partners because I believe that investing and company building is a team sport – you are only as good as the team you play on.

I have invested in a broad range of industries, but one area stands out in my career: engineering software. I have been a first round lead investor/co-founder/board member at SolidWorks, Onshape, Revit, GrabCAD, Simscale, Vention, Join, Dragon Innovation, Tempo Automation, and Premise.
