5th March 2018

We Build Bots, a Bristol and Cardiff-based artificial intelligence (AI) startup who incorporated just 6 months ago, is already over 50% of the way to its current £500,000 crowdfunding target to scale-up its chatbot platform IntelAgent.

“We’re delighted with how quickly we’ve reached 50% of our target raise”


The IntelAgent chatbot works by applying AI to conversations captured via messaging platforms, SMS, email, social and voice to efficiently and accurately automate answers, perform tasks, identify sales opportunities and more.

Plus with a pre-raise valuation of £2M, and several big organisations already on board, including Amnesty International, The AA driving school and Future Plc, these chatbot experts are set to disrupt the customer service industry in a big way.
