About us

Noteworthy AI, a Techstars portfolio company, provides AI-powered asset inspection and inventory analysis solutions for energy distribution grid operators. The company's cloud-based software and computer vision solution, Inspect, reduces the need for dedicated distribution asset inspections and mitigates risk at-scale while reducing cost. The Inspect hardware sensors and AI edge processing arrays mount on existing fleet vehicles and automatically geolocate, inventory, and identify pole-top component defects while vehicles perform routine operations, reducing the need to mobilize dedicated inspection teams. Inspect improves on legacy processes by implementing a cutting edge AI-based solution that helps utilities increase efficiency and reduce cost through automation.

Simply put, we mitigate the risks associated with extreme weather and crumbling infrastructure - helping to keep the electric grid energized!

We’ve gained significant market traction, validation and support from customers like FirstEnergy Corp and Alabama Power, investors like Techstars and partners like Nvidia - so we are looking for great people to come and join our growing team! 🚀
