In the dynamic realm of artificial intelligence, innovation knows no bounds. Enter Alpha3D, a trailblazing generative AI-powered platform making waves as a participant in the Startup Battlefield 200. This startup's mission? To revolutionize the creation of 3D digital assets, making it accessible to anyone, regardless of their 3D modeling expertise, and at a pace that defies convention.
Alpha3D's groundbreaking platform is set to democratize the realm of 3D digital asset creation. With a simple text prompt or an uploaded image, users can generate intricate 3D digital assets within mere minutes. These versatile digital assets find their place in augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), virtual try-on (VTO), gaming, the metaverse, or even as coveted NFTs.
Behind the scenes, Alpha3D's proprietary AI technology, honed over years of development, harnesses millions of data assets to fuel its platform. Instead of labor-intensive scanning or manual modeling, the AI ingeniously transforms existing 2D images into dynamic 3D counterparts in mere seconds. These assets can be seamlessly integrated into gaming environments, metaverses, e-commerce platforms, or wherever creativity takes them.
At the helm of Alpha3D stand a team of visionaries. CEO Madis Alesmaa, alongside co-founders Rait-Eino Laarmann, Shahab Anbarjafari, and Mariliis Retter, bring a rich tapestry of expertise. Alesmaa and Laarmann boast backgrounds in startup ventures, while Anbarjafari has led teams in photogrammetry-based 3D model creation at Rakuten, and Retter brings valuable executive marketing experience to the table.
Alpha3D's vision has not gone unnoticed in the tech investment landscape. The startup has successfully raised nearly $2 million, drawing support from venture capitalists and angel investors, including luminaries like Sebastien Borget, co-founder and COO of The Sandbox, Taavi Rõivas, former prime minister of Estonia, and others hailing from Meta, Slack, and PwC, among others.
In an era where the allure of the metaverse continues to captivate, the demand for 3D-generated content remains unabated. Not every enterprise can afford the expense and intricacy of an in-house team for digital asset creation. Alpha3D steps into this void, offering a cost-effective and rapid solution to fulfill this burgeoning need.
Alpha3D's cutting-edge technology delivers 3D assets in an astonishing four to five seconds, outpacing platforms that require days for similar output. With the first 50 assets offered for free and subsequent models costing no more than "max one euro" per model, the focus remains on user acquisition with monetization plans slated for later this year.
Currently boasting close to 100,000 platform users and enjoying a month-over-month growth rate of approximately 40% to 45%, Alpha3D is fostering partnerships with over 35 companies, including industry giants like Nvidia, The Sandbox, and LVMH. The startup proudly reports 1.4 million contracted ARR (Annual Recurring Revenue) and 60,000 MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue).
