Creatros Technologies and Metricsflow are two Newfoundland and Labrador startups using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to tackle challenging business problems with support from the Provincial Government.
Currently in the final year of the Genesis Enterprise Program, Creatros Technologies has a unique AI powered product that optimizes a company’s operations by putting key information at a decision-maker’s fingertips. SkillsHawk is a searchable tool that tracks an employee’s skills in real time, allowing team leaders to find the best person available to complete a task. Comparable to a Google search inside a project management system, SkillsHawk makes decisions easier for companies looking to hire. A non-repayable contribution of $27,843 from the Provincial Government will help the company with market development and promotion for this technology.
In a sector not bound by borders or geography, the estimated value of Newfoundland and Labrador’s tech sector is $1.6 billion, with approximately 165 companies and 4,000 employees. Over the next three years, the tech sector is expected to create over 2,000 more jobs in the province.
The continued success of the Genesis Enterprise Program has helped to strengthen and diversify Newfoundland and Labrador tech companies. To date, clients and graduates of the program have raised more than $615 million in private investment, and have created more than 1,700 jobs. Genesis Enterprise Program companies are generating in excess of $200 million in revenues annually, and are all headquartered in Newfoundland and Labrador.
