How it works

Build and scale faster through our unique AI Development Track.

Flexible building blocks according to your needs

Phase 1: Run an AI Challenge for Rapid Development

An Omdena-managed and diverse team of 40-50 pre-selected engineers works with you for two months to overcome your data challenges and build your AI models in record time.  

All IP will be transferred to you.

Collaborative AI

An Omdena AI Challenge combines the power of diversity and bottom-up driven collaboration.

Bottom Up AI Innovation

Phase 2: Productionize Your AI Models with Top Engineers

After the two-month challenge, you can hire the top-performers from the project or access best-fit talent via our global talent pool (acceptance rate < 9%). Alternatively, you can continue to work with a dedicated and flexible Omdena team.

Our talent has been hired at Microsoft, Google, and dozens of award-winning impact startups.

Flexible terms & time commitment

Time commitment according to your availabilities. Keep all your equity and benefit from our ‘pay what you can’ fee model, matched to your budget. For some high-impact bootstrapped startups, we waive the fee.

Raise further investment and scale 

All IP will be transferred to you and by showcasing the work, you can raise further investment. We not only help with scaling your product solution but also provide exposure to investors and new customers through our online events. 

Working with Omdena has been truly impactful. The partnership has enabled us to team up with diverse collaborators to test and iterate on new models at speeds we would not have imagined doing ourselves.
