CrowdEmotion Opens Victoria Office

CrowdEmotion Opens Victoria Office


CrowdEmotion is a London based human artificial intelligence (AI) company that enables individuals and organisations to safely read body language through their everyday devices to measure, model and simulate human experiences. It has established an office in Victoria, British Columbia (B.C.) called Element Human as its global AI research centre and North American headquarters. This move allows the company to take advantage of the attractive Canadian talent pool and market.

When CrowdEmotion first investigated the possibility of moving to Victoria several years ago, Trade and Invest British Columbia provided the company with information on the advantages of establishing a base in B.C.

Trade and Invest British Columbia worked in collaboration with South Island Prosperity Partnership, an economic development organization for the Greater Victoria area, to assist Element Human in establishing a presence in Victoria. Element Human CEO Matt Celuszak visited Victoria in early August 2019. The program for the trip included meetings with real estate agents, banks and introductions to the University of Victoria as well as the Artificial Intelligence network of British Columbia, Alacrity and VIATEC.

Element Human is investing heavily in Western Canada, rapidly building out a world-leading human AI team to serve its global clientele. The company was sold on Victoria's world-leading talent pool, way of life and direct alignment with its mission to improve the quality of the human experience starting with the team's lifestyle. It was a natural contrast and complement to the cosmopolitan experience in London, bringing two different worlds together.

Trade and Invest British Columbia will offer continued support as Element Human establishes itself in the region. Stay up to date on stories and developments like this one by following us on Twitter or connecting with us on LinkedIn.
