VIA WAS FOUNDED IN 2016 WITH A MISSION TO MAKE CLEAN ENERGY MORE RELIABLE AND CHEAPER THAN TRADITIONAL ALTERNATIVES.
Electric vehicles and distributed generation were adding stress to the grid. We saw that AI had the potential to help. The biggest hurdle was data. Critical analysis and decisions were delayed because data was hard to share. Solving the data problems to support AI became the focus of VIA’s solutions. Today, VIA’s secure digital collaboration platform is helping infrastructure companies and governments, including those with a similar mission, collaborate to solve some of the world’s toughest analytical problems together.

Konduru declined to say exactly how much Via saw from those transactions, but says the company is on track to reach $10 million in annual recurring revenue this year.”
