If you want to see the full list of AI companies, we have 600+ enterprise AI companies already categorized. You can reach the full list. Wanted to provide the source data before I play the pundit.
As for punditry, I’ll try to be data driven. First, I exclude B2C AI companies as we don’t track them yet. Then, I assume you are interested in companies that raised less than $10M, as a pre-seed+seed+series A can accumulate to $10M.
Let’s also define awesome! To me, an awesome company needs to punch above its weight. Ideally, that means more revenue than expected but revenue is a hard to get metric for startups. So I picked companies that had more customer references and buzz compared to companies launched at similar times and raised similar amounts. To do this quickly, I examined a few of the popular AI use cases like predictive maintenance but the list can get a bit more interesting when I have a bit more time to play the pundit and include other AI use cases as well.
