We're empowering the world's workforce with responsible generative AI.

Using Responsible AI-driven talent intelligence, retrain.ai is redefining how employers connect the right people to the right positions.

Using AI to Power Skills-Based Organizations.

The nature of work is constantly changing. Automation, emerging technologies and new industries have fast-tracked a skills gap that was already making it challenging for employees to fill new positions and for employees to stay relevant.

HR innovators need accurate, real-time skills intelligence to prepare today’s employees with the in-demand skills of tomorrow. We solve this problem with the world’s leading generative AI-driven Talent Intelligence Platform, providing data-driven insights to inform better workforce planning and decisions.

By leveraging the power of responsible, generative AI technology, we help employers optimize the currency of skills to manage talent more effectively, increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve the employee experience.

Our Story

Prior to launching retrain.ai, Dr. Shay David and Isabelle Bichler-Eliasaf had both built and invested in successful companies. Dr. Shay David was a serial entrepreneur who co-founded Kaltura, an enterprise in the video platforms space, and software startups promoting open-source information and communication. Dr. Shay David also began studying the increasing global skills gap and the critical nature of upskilling and talent development.

Isabelle Bichler-Eliasaf was the co-founder Tohar, a placement company that pioneered the use of technology to source, screen, and find best-fit candidates. She envisioned the future of talent acquisition as one in which a data-driven focus on skills (rather than roles) would open up best-fit opportunities for employees and HR leaders.

Inspired to collaborate on a project that would bring about positive social impact, Dr. Shay David and Isabelle Bichler-Eliasaf began focusing on how structured, actionable data could help enterprises and organizations address the global skills gap while improving employability for all.

When Covid-19 hit, the skills gap exploded from a concern into an urgent global issue. In response, Dr. Shay David and Isabelle Bichler-Eliasaf launched retrain.ai in June 2020. That September, co-founder Avi Simon joined the leadership team after 25 years with the Israeli Defense Force, most recently as the organization’s Chief Data Officer. He also held CIO and CTO roles for the Israeli military intelligence corps, where he founded and commanded a number of R&D units specializing in utilizing Big Data for intelligent personnel placement.

Within one year of launching, retrain.ai raised $20 million in funding and grew to 50 employees. Today that number is climbing almost daily, with a global staff on two continents and clients across all verticals worldwide.
