Meeshkan, the winner of the Slush 100 pitching competition in 2018, has caused a media uproar and for a good reason. The company, which was founded in October 2017, has just raised their first pre-seed round of 370K. The round included two vc’s and several angel investors, such as FiBAN Board member Ali Omar and FiBAN Honorary member Risto Siilasmaa.

I am very excited about what the future has in store for Meeshkan. They have made great progress in a short amount of time and they have cutting edge algorithms”, Ali Omar says.

With Meeshkan, a user can “tweak”, change a learning rate, pause training, and compute with a simple Slack command. The user is also able to “test”, schedule training and testing, containerize models, and share models with colleagues on Slack, and ultimately learn. Meeshkan has several patent-pending algorithms already.

Congratulations and way to go!
