More about us!
We recently secured our Series A funding and are thrilled to be able to expand our team. The people engagement category needs some disruption and despite being a young organization, we’re the recognized industry leaders that large enterprises are leaning on. In fact, we’re disrupting the industry and people are noticing!

We’ve also opened our doors to the world of academia allowing globally ranked universities such as The University of Texas at Dallas and Northwestern an environment to learn through robust practical experience. Recently, a Master of Data Science Capstone team conducted an experiment to evaluate future employee performance prediction using AI and Machine Learning models (Watch the summary video). Thomas Miller, a Ph.D. Faculty Director at Northwestern’s School of Professional Studies stated, "As part of the data science capstone or thesis research, as well as in other Northwestern courses, students learn by addressing real business problems. We encourage students to work with businesses like AmplifAI. This is practical, experiential learning at its best.”
