AimHub startup closes a pre-seed round led by SmartGateVC and gets into Berkeley SkyDeck

AimHub, a version control and collaboration hub for AI teams, closes a pre-seed round led by SmartGateVC as the lead investor in their pre-seed round.

AimHub provides a machine learning platform that allows engineers and data scientists to track, compare, monitor, and optimize their ML models. It provides a repository where AI teams can store experiments, their full history - reproducible and accompanied with a rich set of analytics to help accelerate the development process.

Despite the fact that AI has a lot of potential, many companies are not using it because the development process is too complicated for everyone except few highly trained engineers. AimHub aims to disrupt this $30B+ industry by saving up to 40% of the time for AI engineers and unlocking the benefits of AI across numerous industries.

Krisp, SuperAnnotateAI, and SmartClickAI are already AimHub’s customers.

"At AimHub we are building the Version Control and Collaboration Platform for the next generation of software - the software 2.0 - written by AI engineers and trained by the machines. AI teams at all levels need an effective collaboration tool. We are building AimHub to help dramatically accelerate AI development and adoption. SmartGateVC has been the first to sign a cheque for AimHub - they are true visionaries and a great partner that has helped us a lot to make significant progress within a few months with such a small team." says Gevorg Soghomonian, the co-founder and CEO of AimHub.

“As AI is eating the world, AimHub is a building backbone technology that will be used by any modern software company,” says Vazgen Hakobjanyan, Partner at SmartGateVC.

Beside SmartGateVC, a pool of angel investors with deep domain expertise and background in AI joined the round. AimHub also got backed by Berkeley Skydeck which opens up for the company the huge R&D, network and talent resources of Berkeley University. AimHub is the 5th company in the SmartGateVC portfolio that gets investment from Skydeck.
