Who We Are:
AI is the new electricity: Just as electricity transformed numerous industries starting 100 years ago, AI is now poised to do the same. AI Fund is a startup studio building new AI companies from the ground up. Our companies bridge AI technology and applications, focusing on industries and problems that we believe move the world forward.

We have a unique business model that prepares founding members of a portfolio company with technical validation of the idea, experienced back office operational support and our team’s AI know how as well as connections within the AI community. 


About Bearing AI:
Bearing is at the forefront of bringing AI to the maritime shipping industry. This is a trillion dollar industry that moves 90% of the goods we interact with on a daily basis, but has traditionally lagged far behind other industries in adopting new technologies. At Bearing, we’re changing that. We’re building an AI-driven platform that helps shipping companies dramatically streamline their operations and tackle their single biggest pain point. We’ve already built our first product and have some of the world’s biggest shippers as our partners. Our team is made up of highly experienced AI engineers and tech industry veterans and we’re backed by the AI Fund and shipping industry investors.

Ethical/Explainable AI Founder in Residence
Palo Alto, CA

Our mission is to enable trustworthy and robust AI development and deployment. We will audit and monitor AI systems in order to instill confidence around AI in the public sector, the private sector, and the general public. As a result, we provide an independent, third-party stamp of approval certifying an AI system with respect to a specific use case, either involving efficacy or bias. In doing so, we are creating the standard for certain use cases as well as the broader playbook for AI regulation. This stamp of approval enables adoption and improvement of AI systems without fear of penalties from regulators or negative press. If companies have taken the right steps with us and placed the right governance infrastructure in place, they can scale their AI technology with confidence.

  • Strong context-switching ability, meaning you are just as comfortable working with leading AI experts as you are with high-ranking government officials without tech expertise. 
  • Previous startup experience or experience working with a small, scrappy team
  • Nice to Haves:
  • Experience dealing with policy or compliance considerations, particularly around privacy or data protection. 
  • Experience in sectors that often deal with regulation, such as government, finance services, or healthcare sectors.

We hope you will fit well with our team’s culture. AI Fund team members:    

Prioritize: Identify your most important tasks for moving the fund forward, and focus on them. Make sure you can stack rank according to priority, communicate out your priorities, and say “no” or “not now” appropriately to low priority items.
Execute fast:  Move quickly. Set ambitious but realistic deadlines, communicate them out, and stick to it. Don’t take two days to do what can be done in one day, nor two months to do what can be done in one. Startups live or die by their ability to execute, pivot, and grow faster than anyone else.
Work hard: Startups are a lot of work to build. A core advantage startups have over established companies is that they are willing to work much harder, and so can do much more. Lean in and do the work needed to give them the best chance of success.
Own the outcome: Raise all fund-related issues directly. Propose solutions to any issue, including higher-level problems that are “outside your job scope.” We’re a small team and you are empowered to try to make anything better.
