Enterprise tech startups unveiled their products and pitched investors at Alchemist Accelerator’s 14th demo day in Santa Clara, Calif. on Jan 19th 2017. The companies ranged from a Stanford AI labs spinout, Eloquent Labs, to the hardware-makers like Amber Agriculture and PubInno, to lots of software-as-a-service and cybersecurity developers, more like you’d expect from an incubator focused anything-but-consumer tech.
The diversity of startups in Alchemist’s latest batch indicates a sea change in enterprise tech, an the start of an era when robotics, AI and the internet of things are fundamentally changing the way that large companies get work done, from sales and physical labor to IT and data analysis.
