Our mission

Enable data commercialisation for AI  responsibly

We use novel developments in machine learning, cryptography, and smart contracts to let everyone responsibly use and monetise data.

The Team

Engineers + Academics

Valyu was founded at University College London's (UCL) Computer Science Department by researchers and academics. The skilled team has previously co-founded enterprise data/ML companies and worked on privacy, preserving data infrastructures with startups, enterprises and the government.

We just love building cool stuff that people love and have a good time doing it.

It's not just work, it's about making awesome stuff- pushing the boundaries of engineering and research....and enjoying every bit of it. Join us! 👇

Our Vision

Let everyone earn from their data responsibly

We understand the immense value of data. In every byte, there's potential for AI to learn, adapt, and innovate. We're not just interested in accessing and monetizing this potential; we're dedicated to doing so responsibly for us and you. It's more than just algorithms and computations—it's about enabling AI to interact with data in a secure & transformative way; ensuring businesses and individuals can harness its full power.
