CEAI is a Vertical AI Studio

We build startups in industries such as finance, biotech & healthcare, and sustainability & energy, where there is a demonstrated opportunity to use AI tools with sources of proprietary data, tightly connected to subject matter expertise.


Merlon Intelligence

Merlon Intelligence

Merlon screens and monitors KYC/AML identity risk for financial institutions. Having delivered a fully working product for a leading global bank in less than a year, our first venture was able to reduce false positives in customer risk screenings by 80%.

Tower Street

Tower Street

Tower Street evaluates security maturity and underwrites policies for large corporates. A team of 5 was able to deliver the first working prototype in 6 months, leading to negotiations with a global reinsurance company.



HealthMode recruits and virtualizes clinical trials for pharma companies. The ultimate goal is a shorter drug time to the market and significant cost savings in clinical trials.

Babcock & Bonbright

Babcock & Bonbright

Babcock & Bonbright performs real estate appraisal for banking, insurance, and investment. It makes the entire process easier, faster, more scalable and objective.



Upcoming startups include mental health care, climate change risk management, solar energy, and smart contracts for securing insurance and derivative risk transfers.
