History

Since its founding in May 2019, the platform has grown to more than 20000 collaborators in over 120 countries, established over 195 impact hubs in over 80 countries, and doesn’t stop growing. In late 2018, after more than 10 years in AI and entrepreneurship, Omdena Founder Rudradeb Mitra had the opportunity to work with a cleantech startup in his Company country India. The mission was to build an AI-powered solution that could identify houses that are most suitable for solar panels.Within a couple of weeks 50 AI engineers, from remote areas in India, came together in an online environment to build a solution to a problem they deeply cared about: clean energy. Collaboration among the diverse group of motivated people proved to be very powerful.Inspired by the project’s success, Rudradeb founded Omdena on May 22nd, 2019. Michael Burkhardt joined as a Founding Member and Chief Marketing Officer to help bring Collaborative AI to many more organizations and communities around the world.Since then, the Omdena platform has grown to more than 20,000 collaborators in over 120 countries and established over 195 local chapters. Each month brings new solutions to yet another troubling challenge and the team behind Omdena constantly tries to support the community that shapes Omdena.
