Our Story

Cortex is a B2B SaaS platform used by the some of the world's leading brands to know what images and videos to make, how to make them, and which images and videos to promote with advertising budgets. Brands spend $600 billion every year on visuals without knowing these insights. Much of that $600 billion is wasted and careers can be ruined due to poor performance. With Cortex, that entire $600 billion is de-risked. Brands can invest that money with confidence.
Our Ambition

Cortex hopes to be the brain behind all visual creation in 5 years. When people see things, they develop an opinion nearly instantly. That opinion often determines whether the person will buy or enjoy that thing. Huge categories like entertainment, advertising, packaging, and product design are all impacted by people's opinions formed visually. Cortex will be used to drive strategy in each of those spaces - reducing the risk of creating new products, ads, entertainment, and packaging.
