Last week our team had the pleasure of attending South Summit’s annual innovation conference in Madrid, Spain.
Apres was selected as a finalist for South Summit’s Startup Competition, where 100 of the most innovative startups present their ventures in front of a top-level jury of investors and leading corporations.
We were selected to pitch (watch here) in the fintech & insurtech category, and our Co-Founder & CEO Matt Waite was the first to take the stage and present on day two of the event.
Although we didn’t win the competition, we are honored to have been selected as a finalist. It was a great opportunity to showcase our engaged AI solutions to a large audience of technology and business professionals, and highlight the value our platform provides to organizations in the financial industry.
Our Co-Founder & CEO Matt also participated in a panel discussion on deep tech and decision-making alongside Werner Zippold, Managing Partner at Brain VC Fund, Bernie Hernández from Solón Inversiones, and Joan Sintes, Director at Plain Concepts.
The discussion highlighted the power of AI and how it is currently impacting our lives, in both good and bad ways, and the important roles that investors and companies play in driving the technology in the right direction.
Our team also spent a lot of time at our booth meeting with attendees to discuss the key challenges businesses face with their investments in AI, and how Apres can help companies go beyond first-generation AI explainability to continuously improve and fully-embed trust into AI models and, ultimately, make better decisions by bridging the gap between humans and machines.
This year’s South Summit was filled with fantastic insights, speakers, and networking opportunities, and we hope to be back next year!
