We are thrilled to co-lead a $3.15 million seed round in Tristar AI alongside TenOneTen Ventures, with participation from Ford Street Ventures, Nextview Ventures, SNR 5, Trust Ventures, and Seraph Partners.

The manufacturing industry faces persistent challenges in maintaining high production quality and minimizing unplanned downtime. Despite advancements, issues like defects and operational inefficiencies remain costly concerns. Tristar AI's innovative approach addresses these critical pain points by leveraging AI-powered computer vision to monitor and analyze human motions in real-time, thereby identifying potential errors and anomalies that could lead to production delays.

Tristar AI has already demonstrated success in its first year, optimizing production lines at over 30 facilities in the plastics and automotive industries. Tristar AI’s technology has reduced defects and unplanned downtime, showcasing financial savings and productivity.

The core of Tristar AI's solution lies in its ability to provide immediate alerts to operators and team leaders, preventing costly errors before they escalate and reducing the need for manual double-checking. Unlike traditional monitoring systems, Tristar AI utilizes hyper-efficient computer vision and AI models to track human movement more accurately.

We were drawn to their vim and enthusiasm for the space from our first encounter with Salem and Jack. Salem grew up working with his family’s plastic manufacturing business, and after completing research at Harvard and MIT, he teamed up with his longtime friend, Jack, who was a technical lead for computer vision projects at GM. Salem and Jack felt tailor-made to drive innovation in computer vision applied to plastic manufacturing, and their buzzing excitement has spread to our team. 

As we partner with Tristar AI, we can’t wait to support their mission to advance the manufacturing industry's future of operational efficiency. Tristar AI is well-positioned to continue its trajectory of growth and innovation, driving significant advancements in manufacturing practices.
