Artificial Intelligence company Rainbird has been called to 10 Downing Street this Friday to showcase it’s ground-breaking technology. The panel that selected Rainbird included Martha Lane-Fox, House of Lords and UK Digital Champion, and Gerard Grech, CEO of TechCity UK. The Tech Nation event is to be hosted by Daniel Korski, special adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron and will include representatives from British companies and over 40 venture capitalists.

Rainbird has been repeatedly recognised as being one of the most promising digital companies in Britain and has already been selected from over 1,000 global start-ups to participate in the Techstars Accelerator programme. Techstars packs over one year’s growth into an intense 13 weeks programme.

The Rainbird platform uses artificial intelligence to automate knowledge-work. It enables businesses to capture expertise that is locked-up in a small number of experts and scale it into tools that everyone can use, delivering high levels of operational efficiency.

Rainbird’s CEO Ben Taylor said, “Friday is going to be an amazing day. I am looking forward to pitching Rainbird to 900 investors, press and members of the tech community at the Techstars Demo Day and will then run to 10 Downing Street for the afternoon.”

Chairman James Duez said, “Rainbird is already being piloted by over a dozen organisations including a major government department. Businesses big and small are really captivated by how this technology can help increase sales and improve customer service.”

The UK is establishing itself as one of the world’s leading technology nations. Rainbird originated in Norwich which has recently been named as a UK Tech City.
