v-dat framework
/ 01

Variety

Building AI can be expensive thus we look for companies addressing problems that are hard to solve without AI. Such use cases typically have high levels of variety - multiple inputs and possible outcomes.

/ 02

Data

To create a successful AI venture, data is essential. We look for companies who have sufficient data to train their algorithms or creative strategies for building unique datasets ethically.

/ 03

Architecture

We look for companies who have built differentiated IP…startups that have built proprietary algorithms and a scalable architecture. We prefer startups who are at the forefront of the AI revolution…not just using cloud services to embed AI in their product.

/ 04

Team

The product is only as strong as the team behind it. Our founding teams usually have a deep technical background with experience building large solutions using AI or Big Data.
