Welcome to Outset Capital

Founders funding founders

Outset is an angel fund led by Kanjun Qiu, Ali Rohde, and Josh Albrecht.

We invest in pre-seed and seed companies. We are open to any sector, but particularly excited about companies in fintech, AI/ML, enterprise, pro-sumer, and deep tech.

In the past, we have started 5 companies, gone through Y Combinator, and scaled unicorns like Dropbox and Addepar.

Our goal is to be the most helpful investor per dollar on your cap table. This help often comes in the form of recruiting, since we run a 2500+ subscriber jobs newsletter and formerly built a recruiting startup together.
