About Abzu

Founded in January 2018, Abzu is a deep-tech startup with offices in Copenhagen, Denmark and Barcelona, Spain.

Our name is derived from Ancient Sumerian, meaning “the source of the waters of wisdom.”

We are an international group of specialists with many years of experience in physics, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, mathematics, bioinformatics, and business.

We are self-managing

Abzu is a teal organization, which means we practice self-management.

We don’t have any bosses. Abzoids determine their own salaries and schedules and decide their work priorities for themselves.

This requires transparency and trust — qualities which are integral to our technology and who we are.
