Montréal, May 22, 2018 – Cossette, a creative marketing communications agency, and Stradigi AI, a leading Canadian artificial intelligence (AI) solutions provider based in Montréal, announced earlier today that they’ve concluded a joint venture agreement.
Cossette’s integrated marketing communications expertise and creativity coupled with what Stradigi AI brings to the table, counting more than 80 employees which includes 20 applied AI research scientists, will allow the two partners to deliver even better solutions to current and future clients.
“We’re joining forces with a leader in the field of AI with the aim of building on the extensive expertise we’ve acquired in recent years. This is an important step towards expanding our service offering that will immediately benefit our clients,” noted Cossette Executive Vice-President and General Manager Louis Duchesne.
“This partnership marks the start of our accelerated growth plan, and we are honored to be combining our know-how with Cossette’s expertise,” said Basil Bouraropoulos, co-founder and CEO at Stradigi AI. “It’s a clear sign that Stradigi AI’s knowledge and insight are recognized within the industry.”
Cossette will transfer the proprietary solutions it has developed over the years to the new joint venture—including the recommendation engine (or automated learning system) designed for Tourisme Montréal in order to adopt a unique, personalized marketing approach by proposing context-based content according to visitors’ profiles, interests, and travel dates, all in real time.
Stradigi AI, whose research lab is headed up by co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer Carolina Bessega, recently became the very first Québec-based AI solutions provider to partner with the Vector Institute. It is also set to open offices in Toronto and Brazil in the coming months as part of its ongoing expansion.
Cossette is a fully integrated marketing communications agency. It’s a community of 700 creative humans who help people and brands connect in meaningful ways.
Cossette was named Agency of the Year in Canada in 2016 and 2017. It currently has offices in Halifax, Québec City, Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver, and has been making strides to become a major player in the global advertising community. To learn more, visit cossette.com.
