Subject: changes and all hands tomorrow.
Our focus has changed towards larger fewer deals & deeper engagements with handful of finance and insurance customers.
We took a hard look at our marketing spend, pr programs and personnel. We let go most of our amazing inside sales talent. And two of our account executives. We are not building a vertical in IOT. In all nine business folks were affected. No further changes are anticipated or necessary.
These were heroic partners in our journey. I spoke to most all of them today to personally convey the message. Some were with me for a short time, many for years – all great humans who diligently served me and h2o well. I’m grateful for their support and partnership towards my vision. I learnt a lot from each one of them and will not hesitate to assist them any ways possible personally.
Thank you. heroes in bcc. may you find fulfillment & love in your path. It’s a small world and we will all meet very soon.
Our goal as a startup is to get to the most optimal business unit before nurturing and scaling it for growth. We will work tirelessly to get us to that state.
thank you for your partnership, Sri

c o m m u n i t y, h2o.ai,
At H2O.ai, democratizing AI isn’t just an idea. It’s a movement. And that means that it requires action. We started out as a group of like minded individuals in the open source community, collectively driven by the idea that there should be freedom around the creation and use of AI.
Today we have evolved into a global company built by people from a variety of different backgrounds and skill sets, all driven to be part of something greater than ourselves. Our partnerships now extend beyond the open-source community to include business customers, academia, and non-profit organizations.
