Makila (makila.ai), a company specializing in simulation and predictive analysis solutions, founded in Montreal and operating a Paris office since 2018, is proud to announce a first round of institutional financing led by the Canadian venture capital arm of Crédit Mutuel Equity (formerly CIC Capital Ventures).

We're delighted to welcome an investor of Crédit Mutuel Equity's calibre. In addition to its financial support, we can count on its extensive network and in-depth knowledge of the technology sector, which constitute undeniable assets for our expansion in North America and Europe, " said Alain Latry, Makila's President and founder. " This investment will also allow us to enhance our solutions, so that a larger number of clients can obtain a better understanding of their data to make better business decisions. We aim to become a highly innovative company recognized worldwide as a creator of inspiring solutions in response to major business transformation challenges. "

The essence of digital transformation is getting data to reveal their secrets; the financial and human resources departments of large organizations are therefore becoming more aware of the potential of predictive analysis for strategic planning. Makila's seasoned team quickly demonstrated its ability to convince multinationals of the merits of its solution, " said Ludovic André, Managing Director, Venture Capital, Crédit Mutuel Equity. " We intend to be a value-added partner for Makila so that it can continue to accelerate its marketing phase on both sides of the Atlantic, while consolidating its competitive advantage. "

Using all artificial intelligence levers, Makila offers business solutions based on multisource data related to financial, human and operational functions. Data analysis and modelling enable Makila to generate concrete, relevant information for better decision making. Makila's solution covers all aspects of simulations and predictive analysis related to a company's financial health, commercial performance, commissions, staffing, compensation, professional equality and payroll.

Major partners

Makila is supported by the governments of Quebec and Canada in the development and integration of artificial intelligence into its solutions, which are intended primarily for large corporations and public organizations. Support from the Centre de recherche informatique de Montréal (CRIM) also enables Makila to advance its artificial intelligence innovations.

Its partnerships with organizations such as Alixio and Sopra HR in Europe, Labranche Therrien Daoust Lefrançois (LTDL), Sage Consulting and L'effet A in Canada allow it to meet the highest level of client requirements.

In 2019, Makila launched its first offering in France to help companies achieve their professional equity goals and then pursued its R&D to officially launch its predictive analysis platform for financial data and human resources in order to help companies use artificial intelligence to make strategic decisions.
