EF companies include Tractable (Computer Vision, currently valued at $1B as of June 2021), Magic Pony Technology (AI, acquired by Twitter for a reported $150M), Omnipresent (raised $120M Series B just over 2 years after founding), La Vie (FoodTech), Kinetix (creator tools), Genomines (biotech), Transcelestial (satellite communications) and many more.We are backed by some of the world's best tech founders and investors, including Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Greylock Partners, Founders Fund, Demis Hassabis (Google Deepmind) and Taavet Hinrikus (TransferWise).THE ROLEYou will be part of the team that delivers the two key parts of EF London's Programme; Form and Launch. Form begins with making decisions about which individuals to invest in and invite to EF. We then focus on enabling the selected individuals on the programme (cohort members) to find the right co-founder and to develop and refine an ambitious idea over three months. Teams join Launch if we decide to invest in their company. Over a further three months, founders work with our dedicated advisors to accelerate their growth. The culmination is a global Demo Day, where teams launch their companies to hundreds of the world's best investors. This is followed by several weeks of fundraising office hours, where we introduce investors to the teams, with the goal of raising a seed round that puts our companies on the path to scale.EF champions diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive environment in which a wide variety of backgrounds thrive. We do not tolerate discrimination of any nature including but not limited to discriminating on the basis of race, colour, religion, culture, nationality, gender, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, sexual orientation, age, disability, or marital status.
