Chief Executive Officer
Palo Alto, CA

Read Full Description

About AI Fund:
AI Fund is a VC firm that harnesses the use of artificial intelligence to create innovative solutions for the big challenges of today. With the collective aspirations of our co-founders, we build companies from inception to market launch. We innovate, ideate, and validate to address some of the most pressing issues in human capital, healthcare, wellness, and other traditional industries.
Founded in 2017 by Dr. Andrew Ng, the $176 million-dollar funded venture firm is backed by top-tier VC firms and investors, and powered by the AI Fund teams’ combined experiences as AI pioneers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and operators.

Why Partner With AI Fund:
We’ve been there.  We’ve founded and scaled successful companies ourselves, and we know that creating meaningful startups is really hard.  Many entrepreneurs toil with ideas for years.  Many spend time building something without the foresight of limiting factors that could have been easily dismissed up front.  Accomplished execs often teeter between a desire to start a company and creating something great versus taking a job that is less fulfilling.  If only someone could help with taking the risk out of turning an idea into reality and accelerate the company building process, more people would take that first step in becoming an entrepreneur.Coming up with great ideas, sussing them out, assembling great teams, and helping raise capital is what we do.  We shorten a process that can take years down to months.  We make sure you are going after the right market, are fully validated, and are surrounded by great teammates.  Lastly, we make sure you see the world through the lens of a data scientist and machine learning expert, which is the perspective any meaningful company in the future must have.  But we also know that the process is not about us.  It’s about great Founders and empowering them to do great things.

About PowerBlox:
Powerblox is a stealth enterprise startup backed by AI Fund that uses artificial intelligence to optimize your webinar experience.

What We Seek:
This is an opportunity to get involved with a startup at its earliest stages that has already been validated and has a prototype in place.  We are looking for a product focused CEO who desires to get their feet wet running a startup. We are looking for a passionate entrepreneur who can hire great people, get others excited about their vision, raise capital, and make it all happen.

Founder-In-Residence
Palo Alto, CA

Read Full Description

Who We Are:
AI Fund is a VC firm that harnesses the use of artificial intelligence to create innovative solutions for the big challenges of today. With the collective aspirations of our co-founders, we build companies from inception to market launch. We innovate, ideate, and validate to address some of the most pressing issues in human capital, healthcare, wellness, and other traditional industries.
Founded in 2017 by Dr. Andrew Ng, the $176 million-dollar funded venture firm is backed by top-tier VC firms and investors, and powered by the AI Fund teams’ combined experiences as AI pioneers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and operators.

Why Partner With AI Fund:
We’ve been there.  We’ve founded and scaled successful companies ourselves, and we know that creating meaningful startups is really hard.  Many entrepreneurs toil with ideas for years.  Many spend time building something without the foresight of limiting factors that could have been easily dismissed up front.  Accomplished execs often teeter between a desire to start a company and creating something great versus taking a job that is less fulfilling.  If only someone could help with taking the risk out of turning an idea into reality and accelerate the company building process, more people would take that first step in becoming an entrepreneur.
Coming up with great ideas, sussing them out, assembling great teams, and helping raise capital is what we do.  We shorten a process that can take years down to months.  We make sure you are going after the right market, are fully validated, and are surrounded by great teammates.  Lastly, we make sure you see the world through the lens of a data scientist and machine learning expert, which is the perspective any meaningful company in the future must have.  
But we also know that the process is not about us.  It’s about great Founders and empowering them to do great things.

About StepWise:
StepWise is a stealth enterprise startup that utilizes modern-day media to improve the way industries and product companies communicate to their relevant constituents.  

What We Seek:
This is an opportunity to get involved with a startup at its earliest stages that has already been validated and built.  We are looking for either a product leader who desires to get their feet wet running a startup or someone we bring on as the CEO from the get go. 
We are looking for passionate entrepreneurs who can hire great people, get others excited about their vision, raise capital, and make it all happen.

  • Mapping out direction of the road map and determining product requirements
  • Securing and negotiating strategic partnerships
  • Ensuring customer satisfaction with early, key customers so that they are referenceable. 
  • Scaling the business, especially with regards to sales and marketing
  • Responsible overall success of the product and business
  • Although it is not required, we are interested in candidates that can scale to be the CEO.  Under this role, you will additionally be responsible for building the company, recruiting great people, and raising capital.  

What You Must Bring:

  • Strong experience in developing SaaS products and/or building communities.
  • Experience in the marketing tools or sales enablement markets.
  • Previous leadership and management experience. 
  • The ability to think strategically and the foresight to think about problems ahead of time. 
  • Experience with doing customer outreach, understanding market needs, and driving towards product market fit.
  • Experience fundraising.
  • Nice to Have previous startup or other small/scrappy team experience. 
  • MBA from top university preferred.
