At AWS, we admire founders who think long-term and build solutions to hard problems. We were excited to see deepset’s work and understand their vision of building an enterprise-ready, open source NLP solution when we first met Milos, Malte, and Timo in 2019. This funding announcement is a testament to their ability to execute on that vision, and we look forward to helping them accelerate their technology and speed-to-market in the years ahead.1 June 2022
