Outset Capital

San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on April 9, 2024

Outset Capital is a $10M fund backed by the founders of Dropbox, Quora, and Notion. We invest in pre-seed and seed companies in AI, deeptech, and the future of work. We’ve backed 20 companies already, including DatologyKindredMatX, and Charge Robotics.

The fund is led by partners Ali RohdeKanjun Qiu, and Josh Albrecht. We’re a unique fund, in that we’re both builders and investors — in addition to investing, Kanjun and Josh are also building Imbue, an AI startup creating agents that can reason and code, where they recently announced a $200M Series B. We have experience building 100-billion-parameter foundation models, scaling unicorns Dropbox and Addepar, and raising hundreds of millions in venture capital.

About the role:

  • This person will work closely with me (Ali), as I manage the fund day-to-day
  • This person will be laser-focused on our pipeline, doing outreach, strategizing creative ways to get in touch, and speaking with incredible founders or future founders
  • This person will help us deploy the last third of our first fund, and then deploy our second fund

You should apply to this role if:

  • You have experience with and interest in technology and AI specifically
  • You are ready to get your hands dirty, and you are not easily overwhelmed
  • You crave lots of feedback, you learn and move fast, and you get stuff done
  • You move fast, and you’re not afraid to get creative and put yourself out there
  • You are organized and get back to people quickly
  • You love speaking to founders and learning about what they’re building

Note: Prior experience in venture capital can be a plus, but it is not required
