Vizcom, founded by 28-year-old CEO Jordan Taylor, secures $20 million in funding to propel its AI design software beyond traditional markets like automotive and footwear. Taylor, formerly of Nvidia and Honda, recognized the need for streamlined design processes and embarked on a journey to create software that revolutionizes industrial design.

With major clients like Ford and New Balance onboard, Vizcom's industrial design software has garnered attention for its ability to expedite design iterations and produce realistic renderings swiftly. Backed by Index Ventures, the $100 million valuation underscores Vizcom's potential to disrupt the industry.

Taylor's vision for Vizcom stems from his personal experiences and frustrations as an industrial designer. Partnering with childhood friend and co-founder Kaelan Richards, the duo embarked on a mission to revolutionize design workflows, leveraging AI and natural language commands to accelerate processes that once took hours to mere seconds.

Driven by a passion for innovation and a relentless pursuit of excellence, Taylor and Richards navigated the challenges of startup life, from humble beginnings in Taylor's living room to securing partnerships with industry giants. With a focus on enhancing user experience and leveraging AI capabilities, Vizcom aims to redefine the future of industrial design.
