We mobilize artificial intelligence to create experiences for cultural institutions and their audiences.


It all starts with…

We are convinced that the access to knowledge is crucial for the development of individuals. Ask Mona works towards decompartmentalizing the world of culture to bring its institutions closer to all their audiences.

Our story

It all started with a passion (and a desire) shared by its co-founders Marion Carré and Valentin Schmite for culture and transmission. Thanks to the support of the French Ministry of Culture, they launched a first chatbot capable of recommending cultural events.

After winning several awards, a stint at Station F and the Heritage Incubator, a first fundraising and the recruitment of a talented team, they decided to go further by responding to requests from cultural institutions: to equip them with their own conversational assistants by creating the Ask Mona Studio.

By equipping more than 80 cultural institutions with its solutions, Ask Mona has become a key player in the cultural world.
