We’re building powerful generative AI-driven tools so straightforward that anyone working with data can harness them. We have hundreds of customers that tell us as much - from 2 person marketing shops to a multi-billion freight management company. 

Today, we announced that Akkio has secured a $15M Series A. But that's not the important part of the story. We’re leading a movement that is redefining the nature of work in the AI era - and Akkio is now well-positioned to unleash these self-serve tools for any business of any size.

AI is driving profound efficiencies in every part of every business. The breathless hype—and there’s a lot of it—is warranted. The days of complex, certified-expert-only software are numbered. The era we're entering? User-friendly, self-serve tools that give people leverage. Tools that help you write better, code faster, design with flair, and analyze with precision.

Fully embracing generative AI in data analysis will reshape the bedrock of business intelligence and operations. When every professional has an AI assistant in their corner, we'll witness sharper insights, more accurate forecasting, surprisingly smooth automation, and streamlined workflows – all at a rapid pace that will drive new pinnacles of productivity. That's the future Akkio is pioneering.

With Akkio, you don't just make AI models. Our entire user interface is steeped in AI, and it’s a game-changer. You can chat with your data, combine datasets with a few clicks, and create machine learning models tailor-made to drive your business. You can figure out what happened, what’s going to happen, and what you can do about it – all at the speed of a click. This isn’t just a convenience, it’s a change in the way we work.

We are building for a near-term future where everyone in business wields the power of an AI assistant. Companies and people that jump in, embrace the evolving world of work, and adopt AI tools across their productivity stack will thrive. Those that don’t will quickly fall behind.

Akkio is an open platform, so anyone can take it for a spin. “Easy-to-use” is easy to say, but hard to do. So you be the judge. See how our customers are uncovering insights they didn’t know existed and identifying opportunities that move the needle. And know that we’re going to keep adding to and improving the platform at the speed of AI.

We're excited about the AI-driven capabilities we’re building for businesses of any size and the journey we’re embarking on with them as they discover ways to use it. We’re bringing together the consumer-grade ease-of-use chops we honed at Sonos with the deep tech expertise of our people with experience at DataRobot, Mathworks, Markforged, AWS, and MIT. We are a team of builders who believe we can shape the future of work. It’s a thrilling journey, and we’ve only just set off.

Welcome to the new era of work. Welcome to Akkio.
