Founded by a team of Facebook, Dropbox, and LinkedIn alumni in 2017, Forethought's mission is to "unlock human potential through AI." Forethought is a leading AI company providing human-centered AI solutions that transform the customer experience. Our products enable seamless customer experiences by infusing intelligence at each stage of the customer support journey: resolving common cases instantly, predicting and prioritizing cases, and assisting agents with relevant knowledge—all from one AI platform.


Forethought has grown 22x in the past two years and has raised over $92M in VC funding from top investors including STEADFAST Capital Ventures, New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary's Sound Ventures, Gwyneth Paltrow, NBA Vet Baron Davis, Robert Downey Jr., Sean "Diddy" Combs, LL Cool J, and the CEOs of Robinhood, Carta, and Qualtrics. In 2018, Forethought launched and won at TechCrunch Disrupt—the world's most prestigious startup competition—and was featured in Forbes 30 Under 30. More recently, Forethought was listed as one of Forbes' Next Billion-Dollar Startups.
