Our History


Our history mixes with the personal journey of our founders, their friendship, a passion for technology, and an entrepreneurial spirit.

When Technology meets Finance

The history of Axyon AI mixes with the personal journey of our founders – Daniele Grassi, Giacomo Barigazzi, and Jacopo Credi – a long-standing friendship, their passion for technology, and an entrepreneurial spirit.

Daniele and Giacomo co-founded a software development company in 2012. Over the years, the business evolved with technology. The close connection with the renowned engineering faculty at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia led to exploring the new advances in artificial intelligence and deep learning.

In 2016, Jacopo joined the team and, together with Daniele and Giacomo, co-founded Axyon AI to combine their growing know-how of AI and their interest in finance. At the time, deep learning was emerging along with increasing data availability and exploding computation power capabilities. Applications that leveraged these opportunities were explored in several sectors, but specific tools and tech capable of handling the peculiar challenges and complexity of financial markets data were still lacking. Axyon AI was determined to fill this gap.

The newly founded startup looked for partnership opportunities in the financial industry and participated in the ING’s international Innovation Studio acceleration program in Amsterdam. Following six months in the Netherlands, the company won the final pitch and received its first external investment from ING Bank. From then on, Axyon AI focused on developing artificial intelligence and deep learning solutions dedicated to investment management.


“It’s not a knowledge game, it’s a learning game”

In the past six years, Axyon AI has raised € 2.1 M+ in capital and has grown from a team of 3 to 18 people today. Our headquarters are located in Modena, in the north of Italy, with a commercial presence in Milan and London.
