About Safari AI
There are over a billion IP cameras installed around the world, and Safari AI's mission is to convert their video feeds in to mission-critical data, insights and real-time calls-to-action for their enterprise owners. Clients onboard their cameras to Safari AI's platform to get real-time, business-critical data like Throughput, Occupancy, Live Wait Time, Heatmapping Usage, and other metrics.
Safari AI's first vertical was serving the $64B global Theme Park industry, and is now serving 4 of the Top 10 global operators, including Merlin Entertainments (aka Legoland) and Herschend Family Entertainment; it expects to serve 7 of the top 10 by year-end. It's second vertical is the even-larger Live Sports Venues, where it is beginning to market its technology to stadiums and arenas struggling to understand which entrances, concessions, and retail outlets are operating inefficiently.
Safari AI was seed-funded with $8mm by venture capital firms General Catalyst and Initialized Capital (Garry Tan) and expects to raise its Series A in 2025.
Leadership & Culture
Safari AI is founded by a former Y Combinator founder with a meaningful exit under his belt. The company is headquartered in NYC where the Go To Market team is based and works from the office five days a week, while Engineering is distribute between North America and Brazil.
