Mindshare

We are thrilled to share news underscoring the innovative spirit and leadership of XAPP AI. Our CEO, Pat Higbie, has been honored with an invitation to join the prestigious Mindshare Class of 2024, a recognition that highlights not just individual achievement but also the forward momentum of our entire company.

Mindshare, an exclusive organization established in 1997, is dedicated to fostering the growth and success of founders and CEOs from the most promising, disruptive technology and product companies in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Only 52 leaders were selected this year from 150 nominations to be part of this illustrious cohort, including our very own Pat Higbie. This selection is a testament to the vision, hard work, and innovative drive that defines XAPP AI.

The Mindshare program is renowned for its commitment to building a community that supports the long-term, sustainable growth of its members’ companies. Participants have the unique opportunity to engage in a series of classes led by notable speakers, focusing on the intricacies of building a business from the ground up. This environment not only cultivates learning and development but also fosters significant networking opportunities, collaboration, and the sharing of best practices among peers.

This year’s cohort represents a diverse range of industries, all linked by their potential to drive technological progress and innovation within the DC metro area and beyond. Being part of such a community is invaluable, as it provides unparalleled access to mentorship, growth opportunities, and a supportive network of fellow entrepreneurs and business leaders who are at the forefront of their respective fields.

This achievement is more than just an individual accolade for our CEO; it is a reflection of the XAPP AI team’s collective efforts and our commitment to innovation in AI and beyond. We are excited for the opportunities that participation in the Mindshare Class of 2024 will bring, not just for Pat Higbie but for the entire XAPP AI team. We look forward to leveraging this experience to further our mission, expand our horizons, and continue delivering cutting-edge AI-powered solutions to our customers.

As we celebrate this milestone, we remain focused on the future, inspired by the possibilities that lie ahead in bringing the power of AI to home services businesses. This recognition reinforces our resolve to continue pushing the boundaries of what is possible, driving technological progress, and making a lasting impact in our industry.

Going Vertical

We're using AI to aid the Home Services industry. With this focus, we can enhance, and augment common workflows to aid in answering questions and scheduling service calls. This vertical focus is a differentiator for XAPP AI, and allows us to integrate deeply with field service management platforms and CRMS used by HVAC companies, roofers, and more. It's also important to understand the language of these SMBs. What's a SEER rating? Do you recommend a split-system? We've spent a great deal of time teaching our AI the nomenclature of this specific vertical, and the end result is obvious.

Generational AI Adoption

It wouldn't be too hard to guess that younger people tend to adopt the latest technologies faster, and more seamlessly compared to their older counter-parts.  We're not too many years removed from the introduction of the iPhone, and iPad devices that introduced a touchscreen interface to the masses.  This new mode of interaction (swiping, pinching, and tapping) was natural to children, but adults were wondering where the instructions were.  Fast forward over a decade later and a similar phenomenon is taking shape.
