Beekin (with Wharton professor as company advisor)
Sector: Real Estate Analytics
Beekin uses machine learning to predict asset value and rent for real estate. It offers these via SaaS tools to investors and banks. Currently in beta testing with clients with more than $100BB AUM, Beekin is focused on disrupting the $217 trillion real estate asset class through industrial AI.
Nightly.travel (brought to you by Wharton grads)
Sector: Travel Optimisation
Nightly.travel is the world’s first hotel switching platform that allows travellers to split their stay across two hotels in one city destination. By switching once during their stay, travellers can save as much as 70% vs staying in a single hotel, while also exploring more of the cities they visit. With access to 59,000 hotels in over 180 countries, we believe hotel switching will one day be as commonplace in lodging as flight connections are in air travel.
Resurgo Genetics (with Wharton grads as lead investors)
Sector: Digital Health
Resurgo is developing a new field of medicine based on a novel view of life’s molecular processes. We are using artificial intelligence, applied to vast amounts of genome data, to design new drugs to treat a wide range of diseases. In the future this technology will be applicable in many areas beyond medicine.
Seldon (with Wharton grads as lead investors)
Sector: Machine Learning Infrastructure
Seldon enables organisations to deploy machine learning predictive models faster and solve their most important challenges at scale – e.g. high-frequency trading, fraud detection and credit risk. Our enterprise-grade platform works seamlessly with the tools that data science teams already use to help them move from small-scale R&D to large-scale production with new capabilities around infrastructure, collaboration and compliance. Our rapidly growing open-source community includes thousands of AI practitioners across over 90 countries; and contributors, customers and partners include some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies in financial services and technology sectors.
