Saman Farid

I am the founder and CEO of Formic and live in the San Francisco Bay area. We provide robotics to increase the productivity and capacity of factories across the US.

Prior to this, I ran the global investment fund for Baidu Ventures focusing on AI, Machine Learning, and it’s effects on the way we work and live. I am also the founder of Comet Labs - an AI focused investment fund and incubator. Prior to working as an investor, I built and sold two technology companies (an e-Commerce business and an IP Television infrastructure company), worked on technology infrastructure projects in alternative energy, and had short stints at Verizon, Microsoft and Honeywell.

Some of my past experiences are outlined on my linkedin. I also am passionate about youth empowerment and work with East Bay Lights when I am able.
