We're moving towards our goal of creating a profitable, AI-first, open-source company around our vector-search engine, Weaviate. With help from our investors, Weaviate is transforming from a small band of visionaries, into a company - yes, still a small one for now, but a growing one, united by a shared vision. In order to stay true to our open-source spirit as we grow, we want to share that vision with a much larger group of people than just our team. That's the purpose of this blog. We think of it as a meta-conversation about our company.
