Mycroft CEO Joshua Montgomery Discusses Open Source Voice Assistants – Voicebot Podcast Ep 48

Joshua Montgomery founded Mycroft AI in early 2015 and since that time has done two successful Kickstarter campaigns, graduated from both Tech Stars and 500 Startups accelerators, raised $3 million in equity capital and delivered the world’s first open source voice assistant. The company has also launched a new subsidiary that has a blockchain solution called Mykrosystem. He, the Mycroft team and an army of volunteer developers have been busy contributing to both open source projects.

In this week’s interview, Josh discusses the importance of independent voice assistants for both consumers and enterprises. His comments on how enterprises are the more attractive market for Mycroft was interesting and unexpected. Josh also offers insight on his latest fundraising efforts: an online public offering and a potential initial coin offering (ICO). He has served as a commissioned officer in the Air National Guard since 2009 and graduated from the University of Kansas with an Aerospace Engineering degree. A lot of great insights to be had throughout this episode.
