About the Company
Evident is a research company that specialises in the measurement of AI and other emerging technologies. We are getting under the hood of how the biggest companies in the world are using and adopting AI, by measuring their AI capabilities better than ever before.
Our new index, The Evident AI Index, will be the first ever public ranking of individual companies on their AI maturity. Our mission is to accelerate AI adoption by radically increasing transparency of how the biggest companies in the world are developing and deploying AI.
Founded in April 2022, our team is led by our Co-Founders Alexandra Mousavizadeh and Annabel Ayles, who have previously built an index business focused on measuring national AI capabilities.
We are backed by leading investors such as Venrex (early backer of Charlotte Tilbury, ME&EM, and Revolut) and DCVC (deep tech investor), and tech commentators including Scott Galloway (Pivot podcast). We are currently a team of 10 people; gearing up to public launch in February; and have plans to be a team of 25 by the end of 2023.
