Steve Jurvetson is a partner at DFJ. Steve has a reputation for investing in pioneering companies that create new sectors. Two early bets include the Elon Musk-led companies SpaceX and Tesla. (He owns both a Tesla sedan and an SUV and holds board seats at both companies.) Steve serves on the board of directors for Planet, a company that has launched the largest constellation of Earth-observation microsatellites; D-Wave, a quantum computing company which counts Google, NASA, and Lockheed-Martin as customers; and Mythic, a provider of a local AI hardware and software platform that turns devices into secure and trusted intelligent assistants. He previously held a board seat at deep learning company Nervana (acquired by Intel in 2016). Steve holds an undergraduate degree at Stanford in electrical engineering. He maintains a fascination for space and has turned DFJ’s office into a museum showcasing his space artifact collection.
