by Kristi Marvin on 2023-12-06 at 10:42am

This week, we speak with iLearningEngine’s CEO Harish Chidambaran and Matt Safaii, Chairman and CEO of Arrowroot Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: ARRW). The two announced a $1.4 billion deal in April.

AI may be the major buzzword of 2023, but iLearningEngines has been working on AI tools since 2010. Now, it hopes to use a SPAC transaction as its next step.

Harish explains how the company has developed a profitable AI platform with very little outside funding through the years, and how SPAC cash and public share capital can accelerate its growth through an M&A campaign.

Additionally, Matt tells us how Arrowroot’s long relationship with iLearningEngines gives it confidence in how the company will be valued in the public markets.

Give it a listen
