Ambit’s platform enables clients to design, build, integrate and analyse “digital employees”, or chatbots. It enables businesses to complete their projects faster and more efficiently—a 12-month project can be shortened to a span of four to eight weeks. Having recently raised NZ$1.75 million and now based in Sydney’s Haymarket HQ, it now looks to grow globally.
"The SLP was very helpful and insightful. It was a good grounding for us in Sydney and the introductions and events allowed us to meet many important people, including the Lord Mayor of Sydney." - Josh Comrie, CEO & Co-Founder
