The story so far
Founded by AI pioneer and visionary Raquel Urtasun, Waabi launched in June 2021 to build the next generation of self-driving technology. With a world class team, based in Toronto and California, and an innovative approach that unleashes the power of AI to “drive” safely in the real world, Waabi is bringing the promise of self-driving closer to commercialization than ever before. Drawn to Raquel's unique vision and the deep expertise in AI, OMERS was an early and enthusiastic backer of Waabi's disruptive technology. OMERS joined a set of best-in-class investors across the technology, logistics and the Canadian innovation ecosystem in funding one of the largest Series A rounds in Canada's history.
