Converge invests in Central Casting AI’s Pre-Seed round alongside Tirta Ventures and E14 Fund
Central Casting’s mission is to allow game developers of any level to populate games with characters created with generative AI. Converge invested alongside Tirta Ventures, E14 Fund, Beat Ventures, and Rendered VC. Founders Jeff Orkin and Sarah Rudzki have been building AI products together since 2016. For four years, they led development of AI products at Drift. Jeff and Sarah’s previous AI company, Giant Otter Technologies, Inc grew out of Jeff’s Ph.D. research at the MIT Media Lab and was acquired by Drift in 2018. Previously, Jeff spent a decade developing award winning AI in the video game industry at Warner Bros and Vivendi.
