Our Story

Like many successful start-ups, Chisel AI was founded in a university dorm room.

While at the University of Waterloo, our CEO and Founder, Ron Glozman, thought of ways to read and comprehend lengthy texts quickly and effortlessly. He envisioned an app that reduced time spent reading textbooks from days to minutes.

Ron was inspired. He developed an app. It read like a human—just 400 times faster. The app became so popular that within months it was a top app on the Google App Store with downloads across 33 countries and 44 universities. This success encouraged Ron to commercialize the app for sectors dealing in high volumes of structured and unstructured data, as well as mundane, time-consuming administrative tasks that could be digitized.
