Adara Ventures recently completed an initial investment in 42Crunch, the European cybersecurity startup based in London that is changing the way companies secure their API ecosystem.

We are thrilled to back Jacques, Philippe, Isabelle and their world-class team on their journey to secure the largest attack surface: APIs.

⚡️The Opportunity: APIs run the world (wide web)

APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are a set of functions and procedures that facilitate the safe, reliable and stable communication between two applications for the exchange of messages and data. Nowadays, APIs are everywhere, with 83% of all web traffic occurring via API.

☢️ The Problem: More APIs = More cyberattacks

U.S. and Portugal-based Apres this week announced the closing of a $1.5 million seed round to bring its explainable AI solution to market. We at Adara are delighted to back co-founders Matt, Subbu and the Apres team alongside Faber Ventures, Techstars and local angels.

☢️ The Problem: Enterprise AI adoption is constrained by a lack of transparency

Artificial Intelligence has the potential to transform the modern enterprise yet adoption is constrained due to an inherent lack of trust.

Enterprise interest in Artificial Intelligence is booming, with analysts predicting annual spend will grow to $110B by 2024. Unfortunately, the vast majority of that investment is lost as over 87%
