Los Angeles, California, Mar. 1, 2019 – Foundation AI and Unlock Venture Partners are proud to announce a partnership that will benefit both Unlock Venture Partners and their portfolio companies. Foundation AI will provide consulting services to Unlock enabling them to better evaluate new AI technologies for investment. Foundation AI will also offer consulting and development services to Unlock’s portfolio companies, allowing them to easily scale their data science teams.
Foundation AI was founded because its founders saw a need across industries for data science expertise. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the startup space. Firms need a team of data scientists to develop production-grade AI solutions, yet many startups are finding that they can’t compete with larger firms like Facebook, Google, and Amazon for data science talent. Foundation AI’s model allows startups to access the data science expertise they need when they need it. Firms that partner with Foundation AI gain access to the expertise of an entire team, not just a single individual assigned to them. Foundation AI is designed with the needs of startups in mind.
Foundation AI is a full-service AI development studio. We leverage our product development expertise, our team of data scientists and engineers, and our proprietary CogNative AI™ Platform to efficiently build and operationalize custom solutions to business challenges. We can help firms determine their AI strategy, develop and implement their AI roadmap, build them an end-to-end product or an AI-native API to integrate with their existing software, or supplement their existing development team with expert data scientists and AI/ML engineers.
Unlock Venture Partners is a premier early stage venture fund that focuses on tech investments in Seattle and Los Angeles. Formed by former entrepreneurs out of Seattle and Los Angeles, Unlock’s founders realized the difficulty in raising seed stage capital outside of the Bay Area. They founded Unlock to help shape and mature these markets for the benefit of entrepreneurs, innovation, and the broader community as a whole.
