Quini, a provider of sensory real-time data, analytics and technology solutions for the wine industry, has completed a funding round, led by OKR Financial.
Quini aims to advance its artificial intelligence development program and expand the company’s sales organization.
The OKR Financial investment was supported by a syndicate of private investors as well as the company’s co-founders.
Funds will enable Quini to accelerate the development of its artificial intelligence-based wine recommendations engine and expand its sales organization to support the wine industry’s interest in consumer sensory data.
“This funding round will enable us to augment our artificial intelligence-based innovations around Quini’s proprietary consumer sensory data, and grow our sales organization, as interest for our solutions rises among some of the largest wine producers and retailers,” said Quini’s CEO, Roger Noujeim.
Quini was established in late 2012, bringing to market the world’s first visual wine tasting and rating application.
