Daniel Pelaez

CEO / Co-Founder

Daniel, Co-Founder and CEO of Cyvl.ai, brings a remarkable blend of passion, expertise, and vision to the world of tech startups. A graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Daniel's journey took a turn during his time at the Public Works Department in Southbury, CT, where he was struck by the inefficiencies stemming from a lack of data on physical infrastructure.

Applying his undergraduate knowledge in robotics, computer vision, and machine learning, Daniel set out to devise a high-tech solution to a sector that had seen minimal technical advancement. This inspiration culminated in the establishment of Cyvl.ai in 2021, initially co-founded as Roadgnar in 2020 with his long-time friend and roommate, Noah Budris, and later joined by robotics prodigy, Noah Parker.

Under Daniel's leadership, Cyvl.ai is on a mission to revolutionize the way our world manages its physical infrastructure. His goal is not merely about technological advancement, but about creating a sustainable, data-driven future that solves pressing global issues.

Known for his humility and transparency, Daniel fosters a collaborative environment within Cyvl.ai. A mentor to startups in his free time, he's keen on giving back to the startup community, inspired by the guidance he's received from his own mentors and advisors.

With Daniel at the helm, Cyvl.ai is redefining industry standards and bringing much-needed innovation to a sector that needs it.
