Founded by Phil Libin, the co-founder and former CEO of Evernote, All Turtles is an AI studio that partners with founding teams to build products that use AI to solve everyday problems. The studio works with founders to get ideas from pilot to product, and provides them with the support and resource they require to allow them to focus on creating a new product rather than starting a new company.
All Turtles launches with 8 studio companies and 2 studio projects.
