Who is Databloom?

We are a software company that is building the future of data processing with AI. Our flagship product, Blossom Sky, enables decentralized data processing on the edge, allowing data scientists and analysts to train large AI models directly at the source.
The founders of DataBloom AI are the original creators of Apache Wayang. Our Flagship product, Blossom Sky, leverages Apache Wayang, an open source API for cross-platform data processing that we are actively contributing to. With Blossom Sky, users can run data models and ML training against a variety of decentralized data sources ranging in size from gigabytes to petabytes, while ensuring data privacy and compliance.
In 2021, Kaustubh, Jorge and Alexander teamed up to create a startup that would bring Jorge’s research to market. Their goal was to develop the most comprehensive federated data processing platform by bootstrapping their research and development efforts. After leaving stealth mode 2021, they donated their project  to the Apache Software Foundation. The foundation accepted it as Apache Wayang (incubating).
Databloom was founded, established operations in Miami, and pioneered 100% remote work in addition to 4 full workdays every week. Out of more than 4,000 looked at startups, Databloom placed in the Top 50 at the famous Pepperdine "Most Fundable Companies" competition. Databloom was highlighted in several international conferences.
Databloom has been selected for the MARL 5G accelerator spring cohort. This program gives mentorship, training and access to deep tech investors, corporates and public institutions to selected startups. Databloom also received its first external investment from MARL 5G. The investment will help Databloom grow its product development and customer acquisition efforts.
