Specialized Types

We are a hybrid co-investment and technical advisory group.



Our group consists of deeply technical folks with different areas of expertise, spanning all layers of the modern tech stack from bare metal to pixel. We help startup founders in all technical aspects — including informal technical advice about stacks and architectures, hiring for senior technical roles, and access to a large network of star engineers.

We get involved with startups by making small investments alongside world class VCs — Accel, Benchmark, Greylock, KPCB, NEA, Obvious, Redpoint and others. Read what they are saying about us!

If you are a startup founder who is in the midst of raising a round or has recently done so, with any of the above VCs or others, in the Valley or anywhere in the world  — and are interested in getting access to a vast, experienced, technical network, say hello!

Note that Specialized Types is not about investing, but about helping founders get direct access to that rarefied community of senior engineers, architects and managers who have been through successful startups themselves.
