Passionate about humanity
The idea was born
Abu and Vedad met on Quora and started discussing different topics related to AI and the future of humanity. They worked on a few small projects together and later decided to start working on an initiative that will gather a group of scientists building remarkable technology solutions. With exponential growth, their passion became a company.
Gaining industry attention
Companies and organizations started approaching us for potential partnerships, investors started calling us and showing interest in our work and GliaLab started gaining a lot of attention in the media - calling Vedad and Abu the next Jobs and Wozniak.
Startup of the Year
After being nominated for awards like the Chicago Innovation Awards and our founder winning the Fifty for the Future award by the Illinois Technology Foundation, GliaLab wins the award for the Startup of the Year in the „Best AI Solution“ category at the Central European Startup Awards in Serbia.
Executive team starts to grow
After hearing about their success and meeting the founders, Chris Mone, a businessman, entrepreneur and a private investor, joins GliaLab as Principal and Head of Corporate Strategy. Prior to joining GliaLab, while working at a large global publicly traded firm, Chris was responsible for the more than $150 million in revenue and $27 billion in assets.
Development team is growing as well
