Meet Aindo, a startup created by young researchers with a passion for AI, currently addressing the VRT challenge of generating synthetic datasets!

Can you tell us how you came to your startup idea? We would also love to know more about your team, what makes your dynamic so promising and impactful?

We (Aindo) are a group of young researchers with a shared passion for artificial intelligence and machine learning. At the time, we were all very interested in the latest advances in generative models and their possible applications in the industrial field. Therefore, when we came across the EDI challenge of anonymizing data using AI, we realized it could be a perfect match between our research interest and the market needs. Since then we have been working very hard to leverage our knowledge in the AI domain, in order to deliver an innovative solution to solve a problem shared by many industries.

What makes your solution unique? What is the impact you are trying to achieve?

We like to think of our product as being “anonymization 2.0”. Our system relies upon the latest advances in AI. Through our connection with the University, we are sure that we can offer a state-of-the-art implementation both in terms of innovation and performance, while fostering AI adoption in different industries.

What challenge have you selected for the EDI incubation program and why did you choose it?   

Given our interest in generative models, we decided to address the VRT challenge of generating synthetic datasets. While sharing the data with a data analysis provider is a common need for many companies, ensuring the process is compliant with privacy regulations is not easy. We intend to simplify such a process.

For a few months now, you have been working hard in the EDI Experiment stage, developing your Big Data solution even further. Can you please elaborate on your progress and how have you evolved during the acceleration process? How was your experience working with your Data Provider?  

The entire EDI programme is an incredible opportunity to grow as a company. Working on tight delivery deadlines while taking care of the many startup duties gives you the chance to develop a very steep learning curve.

During the Experiment phase, we had the luck to experience and learn the whole process of transforming an idea into an MVP. The support and the coaching sessions are other precious assets provided by the EDI package. Finally, the interaction with the data provider is an opening to experience and learn how your product is perceived from a customer point of view.

 

After joining and benefiting from the tools EDI provided you, what is your next step? 

In the upcoming weeks, we will focus on evolving further our MVP, extending the set of available functionalities. At the same time, we will leverage the EDI teachings and network to reach the market with a strong product. We will also consider additional funding opportunities to develop a proper marketing strategy to reach all our potential customers and scale up at a fast pace.

Finally, what would you say to a startup considering applying to EDI?

When talking about startups, having an idea is important, but far more important is to transform the idea into something tangible. The EDI programme gives you the right tools to enable you to transform your vision into a product. The unique set of competencies learned during the incubation path is extremely valuable. The programme will not only support you in developing your first MVP but will also serve as the basis for any further entrepreneurial activity you will run in the future.
