VC Associate @ ASTRALABS in Austin, TX


We’re looking for the crazy ones that are going to change the world – if that’s you – apply now.

Newchip is a virtual startup accelerator that provides world-changing early-stage companies with the software tools, training, mentorship, and the investor network necessary to successfully raise capital, build, and scale their businesses to eventual exit. We’re in 100+ countries and have a portfolio of over 2,000 startups that have raised $1B+ in funding since our launch in 2019.

Do you love Shark Tank? Imagine every day being like an episode but on a global scale, that’s what we do. We recruit top startups and we launch virtual cohorts each month from our HQ in Austin, TX, with a goal of coaching each to a point of invest-ability. We then invest in our top program graduates alongside our 3,000+ investor network and work with them until exit.

  • We’re a veteran founder team with decades of experience, acquisitions and exits under our belts, and we’re looking for the next member of our team that meets both our core values and can add their skillset to our melting pot of diversity.
  • We’re only recruiting entrepreneurial and driven individuals who are in it for the long haul to reach an IPO and that want to truly assist startups to drive results that create investment returns to our investors and investor partner network.
  • If you’re looking to make a difference in the world and learn in 1 year what most learn in 5, we’re here to provide the mentorship, leadership, and potential to make that dream a reality – if you’re here looking for a 9-5, our company isn’t for you.

Apply today to join the 100+ employees in our HQ in Austin, Texas, or join one of our remote teams around the globe!
