Job Description

In 2019, Autism Impact Fund will launch with the mission of solving autism spectrum disorder — a complex, chronic disease that claims 1 in 59 children in the USA. By untangling autism, we hope to reveal various biological systems that are implicated in so many other chronic diseases.

Our first order of business? Autism Impact Fund is looking to engage with two general partners to oversee investments in technology and life sciences. We will announce the Fund in April 2019.

IDEAL CRITERIA

  • Family member with autism
  • Track record as a successful early-stage investor
  • Familiarity with the current needs of the autism community
  • Connections and excellent reputation in social impact investing
  • One investment partner with deep expertise in life sciences investing
  • One investment partner with deep expertise in software/services startups

FUND STRUCTURE

  • $80 MM vehicle for early stage, high impact investments in autism-related products and services.
  • $20 MM in philanthropic grants to support feasible, scientifically valid, and useful research that identifies and addresses the causes of autism.
