Contrary identifies the world's top talent, and invests in companies they start or join.
We raised a fund from the founders of Tesla, Reddit, Facebook, and many more iconic businesses to build networks and tools that empower people to create great startups.
Ultimately, our mission is to become the layer connecting every talented, ambitious, and ethical person nationwide, for life.

Right now, Startup Search is a website and newsletter which has earned thousands of subscribers and hundreds of thousands of impressions. And we have big plans for it.
You’ll help Startup Search become the world's most helpful, curated resource for tech-oriented job seekers nationwide.
