In the US alone, 33 million SMBs are searching for financial and technology products to run their business, and thousands of vendors and providers spanning categories and industries are entering the market daily. Entrepreneurs need to become experts in selecting the tools essential to their business which is a very time-consuming and daunting task.

OneValley chose to partner with Seekr because of their ability to provide custom and trustworthy AI solutions that align to the unique principles of their business while providing transparency and explainability throughout the model development process. Seekr's principle alignment technology enables enterprises to align AI to their desired values, and industry regulations without the labor-intensive need to gather and process vast amounts of data.

For Haystack, Seekr's custom LLMs will power an in-app chatbot to enable product discovery, comparisons, and recommendations. Combined with OneValley's experience guiding founders through the discovery process, Haystack simplifies how SMBs navigate their financial needs. The result is a trusted, consistently fresh resource for entrepreneurs to have more confidence in their purchase decisions.

"Founding and growing a business requires you to become an expert in just about every category of business tools and services. Today, founders must try to match the complex offerings of dozens of vendors in each category with the very unique needs of their business. Haystack gives founders the highly curated information and insight they need to make the best decision for their business in minutes, not months.

Partnering with Seekr has enabled us to provide truly individualized and customized information, analysis, and recommendations to Haystack users. Seekr's LLM produces fast, accurate, reliable and high-quality content through the Haystack chatbot and it is continually learning and adapting to the needs of Haystack users," said Nikhil Sinha, CEO at OneValley.

Haystack will empower entrepreneurs and SMBs with the business services and technology tools they need to grow their business through:

  • Content built with big picture awareness: Because entrepreneurs are always looking for products that work together, Haystack's recommendations stem from a deep understanding of the layered decisions startups face when it comes to variables like available integrations and cost. Users can access detailed product profiles and informational content on selecting credit cards, payment solutions, HR products, and financial management tools.

  • Personalized experiences through conversational AI: Taking into account specifics like team size, future growth plans, funding, and industry needs, Haystack enables entrepreneurs to find the right tools for their unique business at the right price and at the right time. Users can interact with the chatbot on every page, using it to ask questions and to compare multiple products and plans.

"We value OneValley's commitment to empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders with timely and accurate recommendations, tools and solutions. By powering Haystack with Seekr's custom LLMs that are highly trained for this specific audience, we can further our mission to bring trustworthy and responsible AI that solve specific business challenges to more customers," said Rob Clark, President and Chief Technology Officer at Seekr.
