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 venture studio founded by Dr. Andrew Ng in 2017. Our portfolio companies utilize AI technology and applications to improve processes and efficiency. The AI Fund team combines their experiences as AI pioneers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, investors, and operators. We are backed by a $176 million-dollar fund from top-tier VC firms.

Our purpose is to build AI companies that move humanity forward.

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.

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.

What You Will be Doing:

  • The Product Lead will be in charge of launching the product and ensuring that the portfolio company is hitting its milestones towards its next funding.
  • Working in concert with General Partner to deliver on critical milestones 
  • Recruiting key members of the operational team
  • 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.
  • Technical background, preferably with experience working in artificial intelligence.

Characteristics that We Value:

  • Accountability: an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions while doing so with the highest regard for integrity.  
  • Leadership: able to influence others to follow you and lead the team to a brighter future. 
  • Grit: able to stick with projects and work hard through good and bad times. High pain tolerance and can perform well under stress or pressure.
  • Scrappy: Takes initiative and proactively able to get things done with low resources, but doing creative things, begging, borrowing, and whatever is needed in an ambiguous environment or situation.
  • Ownership orientation: Demonstrated orientation of extreme ownership over all aspects of the company and extremely results-driven in nature.
At AI Fund, we are committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy (including childbirth, lactation and related medical conditions), national origin, age, physical and mental disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information (including characteristics and testing), military and veteran status, and any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
