We invest in engineers
We work with engineers who believe they’ll make the greatest impact by starting a company.
Career planning and advice.
Unique, high-growth opportunities.
Funding and strategic support.
- Career coaching
We get to know engineers as people first. It’s not just about understanding their skills and interests, but what drives them and the kind of impact they want to create. We use that as a lens to craft career strategy, help them compare competitive opportunities, negotiate offers at critical career junctures, and more.
- Startup experience
We connect engineers with jobs that prepare them to be founders. From positions at early-stage startups where they can learn from engineer-founders, experience scale and high-growth, and tangibly shape a product in its nascent stages to ones that offer deep, industry-specific experience relevant to their field of interest.
- Advising & investment
When engineers are ready to start their own company we offer capital on founder-friendly terms and support at every stage—from early gut checks and feedback on ideas, to ongoing advice on product optimization, pitching, and fundraising strategy. We then connect them with exceptional engineers and help them build a robust engineering organization.
Nikhil wanted to challenge himself—as an engineer, an entrepreneur, a human being. We connected him to Anduril, a fast-growing defense startup with a strong culture of learning.
Nikki had a lingering, unignorable desire to get into an early stage fintech startup. We connected her with Vise, a fintech startup run by a pair of young founders, brimming with potential.
We work with student engineers to plan and build their careers, from finding the right internship or post-grad job to starting their first company. We help them understand the startup ecosystem and how to think about a path into it—the skills they need to develop, the pace and tailwinds of the market, the intricacies of equity and valuation, the pros and cons of big tech versus small startups, and, when it comes to it, offer negotiation.
- Jobs & internships
We connect student engineers with early opportunities at companies that believe having a great engineering team is core to their mission. They can learn from great leadership and engineering teams, explore and clarify their ambitions, and sharpen their entrepreneurial skills.
- Delta Fellowship
The Delta Fellowship gives entrepreneurial students $50k to start building something they care about. Recipients in the cohort-based program don’t just get capital—they get hands-on mentorship from other successful student founders, coaching from our co-founders, tailored speaker sessions, and social events with other fellows.
Katherine wanted the intense kind of personal impact that comes from the best early stage, close-knit, fast-growing founder-led companies. She found it at Applied Intuition, an autonomous vehicle startup.
Johnathan wanted to work on backend-heavy distributed systems challenges while learning directly from founders. As the 12th engineer and first new grad SWE at Vise, he's doing just that.
Jared started his senior year with an offer he planned to take but wasn’t excited about. We asked him what would excite him. Robotics at a fast-paced company in the defense industry, he said. Enter Anduril.
