About Us

Founded in 2021 by Burkay Gur and Gorkem Yurtseven, our company was born out of a shared passion for AI and a desire to address the challenges in AI infrastructure observed during their tenures at Coinbase and Amazon.

Since then, we've achieved remarkable milestones, including developing the fastest inference for models like SDXL and Whisper. Our solutions now support hundreds of millions of customers, demonstrating our ability to serve at an impressive scale.

Operating at the forefront of AI Inference, particularly in generative media, we empower developers to create the next generation of creativity tools. Our work facilitates easier access to AI's potential, enabling transformative experiences for consumers.

We are backed by the best Silicon Valley investors and angels. We are headquartered in San Francisco, but our team spans the globe, comprised of the best global talent.

Our Mission

Our mission is to amplify and expand human creativity.

We recognize that the true potential of generative AI lies in its ability to revolutionize creative processes across various domains. However, slow inference speeds and high costs often hinder the seamless integration of these powerful models into real-world applications. By providing the fastest inference for generative models, we tackle these challenges head-on, making it possible for developers to create responsive, immersive, and cost-effective experiences.

In a world where visual content reigns supreme, we firmly believe that generative AI for media represents the future. Our focus on optimizing inference speeds and efficiency not only enhances the end-user experience but also ensures that developers can build scalable applications, even amidst the current GPU shortage.

Ultimately, our mission is to reduce the barriers to creative expression by making generative AI accessible to all. Just as recorded music empowered musicians and YouTube enabled video creators, we envision a future where our platform serves as a catalyst for a new generation of creators, unleashing their imagination and redefining the boundaries of what's possible.
