🚀 About Us

Amigo’s mission is to empower the world’s experts to scale their services through digital clones.

Amigo’s cloning platform enables any expert to teach their clone how to reason and behave so they can use it to reach more customers and drive incremental revenue.

  • We’re well-funded and backed by notable VCs
  • Our team has built products used by 100M+ people at companies like Google, Databricks, and Plaid.
  • Demand for our clones has outpaced our expectations. We are growing really fast, have paying customers who love our product and are gearing up for rapid expansion.

🧠 The Problem We Are Solving

Today, professionals in knowledge-based service industries (e.g., coaches, therapists, consultants, and advisors) face a scalability challenge; they trade their time for money and so their earning potential is constrained by the number of working hours in a day. Amigo helps solve this by enabling experts to create, train, and monetize a digital clone. They can use their clone to deliver their service and reach more customers while driving incremental revenue.

We believe that a high-quality and functional clone should not only mimic the tone of its expert counterpart but also deliver meaningful value through its service. For instance, a therapist's clone must be capable of providing therapy. An individual's expertise is more than just their accumulated knowledge; it includes context-specific reasoning, intuition, cognition, and other subtleties unique to them. To capture their cognition, we are developing a cloning mechanism that can capture their critical reasoning, tacit knowledge, and intuition in specialized service settings. If what we’re building resonates with you, we’d love for you to join us.

🧬 Our Company DNA

Our culture and values are in their formative stages, and we want you to help define our culture as we grow. Having said that, here are some things that are already part of our DNA:

  1. 🥇 First Principles Thinking: we build from raw atoms.
  2. ↗️ Velocity & Vectors: optimize for velocity; think in vectors.
  3. 👀 Vision Driven: see the tower before you build it.
  4. 💪🏼 Customer Focused: let them paint our north stars.
