Infranode, a Nordic long-term infrastructure investor, and Silo AI, the largest private AI lab in the Nordics, have joined forces to create AI solutions to further help Infranode discover investment opportunities. The solution has been in use at Infranode since early this year, and has so far been able to both improve opportunity sourcing as well as make managing leads easier.
The natural language processing-powered solution analyzes a vast amount of different data sources, and identifies potential leads for Infranode to further validate. These opportunities are then curated and catered in a simple email format to the investment team at Infranode. The identified investment opportunities focus on Infranode’s core areas of interest, such as transportation, energy, digital infrastructure and social infrastructure.
– It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with Silo AI’s experts. With their AI capabilities, we were able to build an AI-powered solution that gives us further edge within the origination work in our market and helps us smoothen one of the more labor intensive parts of our investment process: finding new relevant opportunities. With the intelligent solution sourcing new leads, we can improve our efficiency in identifying those investment opportunities that are most relevant for our investment strategy, says Christian Doglia, CEO and Founding Partner at Infranode.
– Together with Infranode, we identified a bottleneck, and traced the necessary data sources to improve lead generation. Now, with the solution in use already since the beginning of the year, we have not only been able to aid with automating a part of the investment workflow, but have also collected more data to further improve the solution. As initially planned, the solution has contributed to better processes, and more focus on the leads that really matter, says Peter Sarlin, CEO and Co-founder at Silo AI.
