The goal is to improve their product, prepare for funding, and meet potential clients.
“I consider it a great opportunity to be one of the 10 AI (artificial intelligence) companies to chosen for the Google For Entrepreneurs Exchange,” said Robin Mays, CovalentAI’s co-founder. “It has been a long 2 yearrs to position the company to be ready to take advantage of these types of opportunities to drive our business growth and development.
CovalentAI also is an Ascend2020 Atlanta company. Ascend2020, an initiative supported by JPMorgan Chase & Co., is a technology startup and small business support ecosystem for minority-led companies across metro Atlanta.
As an ATDC portfolio company, CovalentAI has focused on honing its pitch and differentiating itself from its competitors, said Kirk Barnes, an ATDC startup catalyst.
“The company has a compelling platform in the AI space, and we looked at bringing more focus on how its offerings are different and how to pitch and present to potential customers with that in mind,” Barnes said. “We worked with Robin and her team to help them not only identify and understand their competitive advantages, but how to best leverage them in the marketplace.”
