Sometimes we find San Diego stories in unlikely places. 
 
Today, Pristine Environments, a facilities management company, announced that it will be integrating autonomous robotic cleaning technology into its clients’ facilities through a partnership with San Diego-based Brain Corp, a Qualcomm Ventures-backed company. Pristine clients include BAE Systems, Scripps, Takeda, CBRE and many more.

At EDC, we like to see San Diego companies working together. Even better is when we can make it happen. 
 
EDC played matchmaker on this deal. When EDC’s economic development manager Jesse Gipe heard Brain Corp was looking to pilot its robotic cleaning technology, he knew the right partner was in San Diego.  He introduced them to Pristine Environments, an EDC investor in the facilities management space, to see if they would be open to getting this new technology into the hands of their clients. Pristine Environments has clients all over the country, but is headquartered in San Diego. 
 
Brain Corp is a software technology company specializing in the development of autonomous artificial intelligence (A.I.) systems for self-driving vehicles (SDVs). Its newly-launched, self-driving industrial floor-cleaning machine called EMMA will be used in Pristine Environments’ client location throughout the country.  
 
Two local companies collaborating to harness the power of artificial intelligence and robotics to make our lives a bit easier... Now that’s a San Diego’ story.
