Digitize AI, which launched earlier this year, is raising $800,000 from investors with $525,000 already raised.

The startup labels itself as “the leading independent Intelligent Automation firm in the Southeast.”

According to its founders: “We set out to help companies on their automation journey. Having led efforts at Fortune 100 firms ourselves, we know the pressure and pain points that arise. We also know what is real and what is hype. We decided to create a firm that can help companies achieve a high ROI in the short term as well as put in place the building blocks for their future automation and AI journey.”

The company offers a mix of “AI, Machine Learning, and Robotic Process Automation technology” to help clients “digitize your processes and create a digital workforce.”

The company is led by Chief Executive Officer Justin Adams and Chief Technology Officer Thomas Gathings.
