As a serial digital entrepreneur, he is leading the charge in AI and machine learning based customer experience in a way that has never before been possible. As with most start-ups, one of the biggest challenges was to get the funding required to help build a team to create a cutting-edge product and take it to market. Having already secured sufficient investment from investors that shared our view has helped us achieve our growth to date. An exclusive partnership agreed with PayPal last year is testament to cloud.IQ’s specialist expertise in conversion and has elevated the company’s market strength with access to a global merchant audience. cloud.IQ’s direction towards a fully automated AI and machine learning based CRO platform is a game-changer for any e-commerce brand. James and the cloud.IQ team are leading the thinking in this space, which means educating its customers and the wider market as to the full power of the platform and how smart brands are adopting CRO capability not previously possible. With offices in Sydney, the cloud.IQ headquarters are based in the vibrant heart of London’s tech scene in Shoreditch. This proved a smart move, as it continues to help to recruit and retain the best tech talent in the UK as well as reap the benefits of being part of a much bigger and inspiring collective of companies all trying to disrupt established ways of doing stuff. There are now over 3,000 tech companies all within a mile of cloud.IQ headquarters, creating ample opportunities to network and share ideas.
