Our Mission: Empowering analytical decisions without limits.

Who is Databloom?

Our mission at DataBloom AI is to revolutionize the world of data by connecting disparate sources and empowering analytical decisions without limits. We strive to break down barriers and unleash the true potential of data, enabling organizations to extract valuable insights and make informed decisions that drive innovation and growth. Through our innovative virtual data lakehouse platform, 'Blossom Sky,' we empower businesses to seamlessly access and leverage data from across the globe, unlocking new frontiers in AI and analytics. Together, we are shaping a future where data knows no boundaries, inspiring endless possibilities and transforming the way we understand and interact with information.
In 2021, Kaustubh, Jorge and Alexander teamed up to create a startup that would bring Jorge’s research to market. Their goal was to develop the most comprehensive federated data processing platform based on the research the team conducted over the past years. After leaving stealth mode at the end of 2021, they donated the prototype code to the Apache Software Foundation and incubated it as Apache Wayang.
Jessica joined DataBloom as founder and CFOO from Goldman Sachs, we officially founded DataBloom AI, established operations in Miami, and pioneered 100% remote work in addition to 4 full workdays every week. Out of more than 4,000 looked at startups, DataBloom AI placed in the Top 50 at the famous Pepperdine "Most Fundable Companies" competition. DataBloom AI was highlighted in several international conferences.
DataBloom AI has been selected for the MARL 5G accelerator spring cohort. This program gives mentorship, training, and access to deep tech investors, corporations, and public institutions to selected startups. DataBloom AI also received its first external investment from MARL 5G in March, followed by its acceptance into the Google Cloud for Startups program, including a $250k grant to build Blossom Sky for Google Cloud.
