In the Near Future, Executive Success
Will Be Measured by AI Success

We founded Ai Collaborator on the fundamental belief that investment in AI innovations is now essential for businesses to successfully compete in the evolving, hyper-connected economy.

Collaborations Are Core to Our Mission

As an open innovation platform, we believe that collaborating with startups, those best suited to bring AI innovations to market, is the most economical and efficient approach for business leaders to identify and deploy AI technologies in their organizations.

We accomplish this by:

  • Emphasizing a humans-first approach to deploying AI innovation that prioritizes the customer experience;
  • Democratizing access to applied AI innovations centered specifically on the customer journey; and
  • Accelerating discovery and deployment of startup AI innovations from around the globe.
