Sumon Sadhu

 Co-Founder & CCO

Sumon Sadhu is a serial entrepreneur and investor focused on amplifying human intelligence and building nationally-significant companies to solve valuable commercial problems. He is the co-founder of Atman Labs, a London-based applied AI R&D and design company emulating human expertise in software, building the next generation of vertical search engines that can also reason like a human to proactively synthesize and share novel information. As CCO, Sumon champions the most prominent opportunities for Atman’s platform to change industries and drives the design and deployment of new product experiences to reinvent markets, starting with shopping: Atman’s first product will give every human access to individualized shopping concierges, enabling unique and engaging discovery across millions of products on the internet.

Having founded and commercialized multiple categories of intelligence systems, Sumon’s unique background allows him to acutely identify opportunities where interdisciplinary R&D meets market demand. As part of the founding team at Quid, backed by Founders Fund and Atomico, he brought to life the platform for machines to identify, visualize, and query inherent patterns across millions of documents, mimicking the way experts structure knowledge to amplify an enterprise’s understanding of their industry and market. As the highest revenue producer for the company, Sumon generated over $2.6M in enterprise sales as an individual in year one and built the go-to-market playbook that led to onboarding large national corporations and governments. He then went on to found Muse, backed by Horizons Ventures, a video-search company that emulates how humans recall memories, where he served as CEO. Sumon studied Biochemistry and Bioinformatics at Oxford University and Imperial College London, where he was a Wellcome Trust Scholar.

From his experience in Silicon Valley, which started in 2008 after being selected to the fifth-ever batch of Y Combinator, Sumon is driven to amplify global entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world by identifying companies that he believes can be nationally significant. This desire was fueled when he helped launch Seedcamp, the pan-European seed fund that originally backed companies like UiPath and Transferwise. Since then, as an angel investor, he has been one of the first checks for over 60 companies across 15 countries, with over 10 successful exits and 6 Unicorns and Decacorns from seed. As a partner at Transpose Platform, Sumon incubated and led investments into Uiflow, a low-code platform acquired by Workday, and Hubble Networks, an IoT connectivity network and the first company to connect any Bluetooth device to space. Having co-invested with funds like Founders Fund, a16z, Sequoia, Benchmark, Accel, Index, Thrive, Tiger, and Addition, his notable personal investments include Benchling, Xendit, Mercury, Photoroom, Persona and LabelBox, and he continues to be active in nurturing and amplifying foundational companies at a national level.
