Predibase Named to the 2024 CB Insights AI 100 List

CB Insights today named Predibase to its eighth-annual AI 100, showcasing the 100 most promising private AI companies of 2024.

"AI is taking off at lightning speed, and it's not just big tech companies at the forefront of it," said Deepashri Varadharajan, director of AI research at CB Insights. "Our AI 100 winners - many of them early stage startups, some with very small teams - are pushing the boundaries of AI in everything from game development and battery design to agentic AI systems."

"We're grateful for the recognition of the CB Insights AI 100 list, further validating our view that the future is fine-tuned," said Dev Rishi, co-founder and CEO of Predibase. "Our approach is to offer organizations an accessible and affordable path to having small, custom and task-specific models refined to solve their particular use cases. We make it possible to fine-tune and serve task-specific open source models at a fraction of the cost of general-purpose commercial LLMs, while rivaling best-in-breed solutions on model performance."

The 100 winners were chosen based on several factors, including CB Insights' data on deal activity, industry partnerships, team strength, investor strength, patent activity, and proprietary Mosaic Scores. We also analyzed CB Insights' exclusive interviews with software buyers and dug into Analyst Briefings submitted directly to us by startups.

The Predibase platform is built on top of the open source declarative framework Ludwig, which enables developers to efficiently fine-tune models like Llama-2, Mistral, Zephyr and Gemma. Recently, the company released LoRA Land, a collection of fine-tuned models that rival GPT-4, launched open-source LoRA Exchange (LoRAX) to serve hundreds of LLMs on a single GPU, and introduced Serverless Fine-Tuned Endpoints - the first serverless solution for fine-tuned LLMs on the market.

Quick facts on the 2024 AI 100:

  • 16 countries represented, from the US to France to South Africa
  • 30+ categories of solutions, from foundation models to humanoids
  • 68% early-stage startups building virtual worlds, autonomous factories, language models for under-represented languages, and more
  • 600+ business relationships since 2016 with industry leaders like Toyota, Netflix, and the World Bank
