NAPLES — Stickboy Creative, a custom software and mobile app development firm with a focus on artificial intelligence, has teamed up with Naples-based Tamiami Angel Funds, the largest angel fund in Florida.
The technology partnership will provide the fund with bleeding-edge technology development while it conducts its due diligence investigation of prospective companies, according to a statement.
“In order to investigate companies that utilize artificial intelligence or behavioral analysis, we need someone who is skilled and current in this technology,” says Tim Cartwright, chairman of Tamiami Angel Funds in the statement. “Because Stickboy is developing this technology and amassing large amounts of data, their skill-set and knowledge is directly applicable to our investigations.”
