Baidu Ven­tures

With sup­port from the robust found­a­tion Baidu has built in its research and applic­a­tion of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, Baidu Ven­tures is determ­ined to invest in and sup­port entre­pren­eurs build­ing the new age of AI com­pan­ies.

As an inde­pend­ent invest­ment fund, the team focuses on AI and data enabled com­pan­ies, as well as broadly trans­form­at­ive and dis­rupt­ive ideas. We strongly believe that AI will enable us to bet­ter under­stand our world, increase effi­ciency and fun­da­ment­ally change the way we work and live.

From quantum com­put­ing to com­pu­ta­tional genet­ics, smart cit­ies to pre­ci­sion medi­cine, we aim to invest at the fore­front of the AI revolu­tion, with an eye towards the massive changes to industry powered by AI. We seek extraordin­ary founders with unique vis­ions for the future who can inspire and part­ner with us in chan­ging the future.

We invest in Seed stage, Series A, and Series B com­pan­ies, primar­ily in China, US and Europe.

Praxis­stu­dent/in - Robot­ics and Smart Man­u­fac­tur­ing

Work­ing field:

Assist in the sys­tem­atic research of the robot­ics industry, with the fol­low­ing focuses:
  • Ana­lysis of key tech­no­logy status and innov­a­tion trends in rela­tion to mobile robots (con­trol­lers, actu­at­ors, sensors, front end integ­ra­tion, oper­at­ing sys­tems, algorithms, etc) and/or indus­trial 4.0 related tech­no­lo­gies
  • Key trends and drivers in rela­tion to rel­ev­ant mar­kets and applic­a­tions
  • Iden­ti­fic­a­tion of key innov­at­ive research insti­tutes, labs and pro­ject groups that are address­ing the next gen­er­a­tion top­ics
  • Scan­ning, long list­ing and ana­lys­ing of rel­ev­ant start-ups and more estab­lished com­pan­ies
  • Assist in assess­ment of com­pan­ies as ven­ture cap­ital invest­ment tar­gets, with the oppor­tun­ity to dir­ectly expose to real world deal mak­ing and prob­lem solv­ing in ven­ture cap­ital envir­on­ment

Require­ments:

  • Strong inter­dis­cip­lin­ary under­stand­ing of a wide enough com­bin­a­tion of robotic and/or indus­trial 4.0 rel­ev­ant fields, which might include mechat­ron­ics, elec­tron­ics, embed­ded sys­tems, low-level pro­gram­ming, con­trol the­ory, arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, soft­ware design, cog­nit­ive sys­tems, etc.
  • Post gradu­ate or PhD stu­dent status in a Uni­versity regarded as lead­ing or strong in the above men­tioned fields.
  • Flu­ent in Eng­lish and Ger­man
  • Strong abil­ity in time and sched­ule man­age­ment skills, com­mu­nic­a­tion skills and effi­cient and tar­get-ori­ented work style (due to remote, "home office" envir­on­ment)
  • Work­ing loc­a­tion: home office

What we of­fer:

  • Oppor­tun­ity to dir­ectly expose to real world deal mak­ing and prob­lem solv­ing in ven­ture cap­ital envir­on­ment
  • Full-time ven­ture cap­ital entry level job offer is pos­sible
