Marketing Leader - Agnostiq

Who Is Agnostiq & How Are They Changing the World?

 

Agnostiq is on a mission to democratize access to the world’s most advanced computing resources. Founded in 2018 by Oktay Goktas and Elliot MacGowan and backed by a team of physicists, software engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians, they work at the intersection of High Performance Computing (HPC), Cloud Computing and Quantum Computing.

Their open source platform, Covalentis a multi-cloud, distributed computing framework designed to simplify access to advanced computing resources such as GPUs, ASICs, and quantum computers, to power the next generation of machine learning and quantum computing applications. The cloud-hosted, commercial version of Covalent, provides on-demand access to CPUs, GPUs and other cloud-based HPC resources. Covalent is used by leading teams at major universities, national labs, and Fortune 500 companies across North America and Europe.

Covalent is industry and vertical-agnostic, from bio & life sciences (see how Covalent streamlines biotech workflows here, & LLM workflows here), to chemistry, quantum computing, machine learning and more. 

In April 2023 Agnostiq closed a $9.1M USD seed extension funding round led by Differential Ventures. Additional investors include Scout Ventures, Tensility Venture Partners, Green Egg Ventures, and Rob Granieri, principal at Jane Street Capital. This follows their $2M USD seed round in 2021 and a ~$1M pre-seed round in 2018.

 

Hardware and cloud providers are investing heavily in HPC systems to power the next generation of AI applications. Agnostiq, with both a commercial offering (Covalent Cloud) and open-source offering, is well-positioned to capture this emerging market!
