Recommendations

Warren Katz Advisor at Brick & Portal recommended Awayr A.I. where Adam is Co-Founder

Adam was an associate in my program (Air Force Accelerator Powered by Techstars). I found him quite intelligent and ambitious. I found the value proposition of Awayr quite intriguing and I look forward to validation that their theory on optimal user interface design is true.

Dan Esposito National Science Foundation I-Corps Entreprenurial Lead at Northeastern University recommended Awayr A.I. where Adam is Co-Founder

Awayr's CEO Adam Beal helped my company through the Air Force funded Techstars Autonomous process including help with business development and business strategy. Adam is motivated, hard working, and extremely focused on identifying real customer problems.

During our time at Techstars, I learned about Adam's business concept for Awayr - where he was going to leverage his experience and knowledge of the automotive industry and a focus on user design with AI to allow human-machine interface designers to rapidly iterate. Since learning of his concept, I've been impressed watching Adam and his team execute from concept, to formation, to being accepted into the Defense and Security track of the Global Business Accelerator MassChallenge, pitching in front of Air Force leadership, and developing a compelling product.

Shahriar Khushrushahi Post-doctoral Fellow at MIT recommended Awayr A.I. where Adam is Co-Founder

Adam and his team have tremendous grit and tenacity with a constant "can do" attitude that I admire. These qualities are necessary for the trials and tribulations of a startup. Awayr is in good hands with the potential to disrupt HMI.
