Hispanic Heritage Month – George Bolanos

“We invested in George Bolanos, founder and CEO of InsideMaps, in 2013 in Ulu Fund I. The proptech platform turns iPhones into powerful 3D scanners and creates accurate recreations of physical buildings. Large companies that use home data for their business use InsideMaps for appraisals, marketing, and inspections. George grew up on a grape ranch in California’s Central Valley, one of eight kids and the child of Mexican immigrants. His love of reading and pulling apart radios drove his interest in technology. He worked at one of the pioneers of the internet revolution, Netscape and one of the drivers of the smart phone revolution, Sony Mobile. As a serial entrepreneur, George has focused on building businesses from deep tech breakthroughs. He is passionate about InsideMaps because of the impact advances in AI and computer vision will have on the lives of millions everyday.”  – Ulu Ventures
