Founded in 2017 by Marion Carré and Valentin Schmite, Ask Mona develops conversational tools for public information and mediation as well as data analysis solutions to simplify the relationship between cultural institutions and visitors. With 15 employees, Ask Mona currently has over 70 clients with various profiles throughout France: the Louis Vuitton Foundation, Paris Museums, the Grand Palais, the Théâtre du Châtelet, the Musée des Augustins in Toulouse, the Centre Pompidou in Metz, etc. The solution can be accessed directly online from visitors' cell phones or tablets, without the need to download anything.
Ask Mona's ambition is to become the European leader in artificial intelligence solutions dedicated to the cultural market, enabling cultural institutions to get closer to their audiences. Ask Mona has closed a second round of financing in 2021 with Bpifrance, Saga Invest, an investment fund specialized in art and new technologies, to continue its growth and its investments in R&D in order to experiment and create new solutions mobilizing artificial intelligence, via collaborative innovation partnerships with cultural institutions.
