Gordon and Betty Moore established the foundation to create positive outcomes for future generations. In pursuit of that vision, we foster path-breaking scientific discovery, environmental conservation, patient care improvements, and preservation of the special character of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Driven by the vision of our founders, we enable lasting, meaningful change through sustained, scientifically sound philanthropy. We appreciate our role as society’s venture capital, making bold investments and taking considered risks, to attain significant results that can improve the future. We seek to achieve through philanthropy what Gordon Moore accomplished for the world of computing: to create an ever more powerful engine of progress in society.
We're a company of pioneers. It's our job to make bold bets, and we get our energy from inventing on behalf of customers. Success is measured against the possible, not the probable. For today’s pioneers, that’s exactly why there’s no place on Earth they’d rather build than Amazon.
Headquartered in New York City, the D. E. Shaw group is a global investment and technology development firm with offices in North America, Europe, and Asia. Since its organization in 1988 by a former Columbia University computer science professor, David E. Shaw, the firm has earned an international reputation for successful investing based on financial innovation, careful risk management, and the quality and depth of our staff. Our investment activities are based on both mathematical models and our staff’s expertise, and our multi-disciplinary approach combines insights from quantitative fields, software development, sector expertise, and finance. We offer the benefits of being one of the world’s largest, most established alternative investment managers, with a world-class technology infrastructure, deep research capabilities, and programs that facilitate the ongoing growth and internal mobility of staff. We have a long history of looking for candidates who aren’t conventional “financial types,” and our culture doesn't fit the typical corporate mold.
Descartes Labs is a New Mexico-based startup applying artificial intelligence to satellite imagery to better understand our planet. Our first focus is in agriculture, where we are building advanced models that better predict the output of commodity crops corn, soy, and wheat globally. To build these models, we ingest and process petabytes of data.
