Building an ecosystem of assets and capabilities that address all core enterprise AI needs – with sustainability at heart.
EscherCloudAI, a visionary company in the realm of AI and data centre capabilities, was established on the foundation of strategic foresight and industry experience. The journey began with Great Grey Investment, a private equity firm launched in 2013, specialising in real estate ventures across the Netherlands and Belgium.
With a keen eye for emerging trends and market needs, the firm played a pivotal role in one of Amsterdam's most ambitious projects, Wooden City, in 2020. This venture opened the doors to realising the growing necessity for data centre capacity and AI compute power, especially in innovative spaces.
The company initiated the Silver Falcon project in 2021, a significant 78MW data centre project located in Westpoort, Amsterdam. This venture marked a turning point, showcasing the firm’s commitment to addressing the burgeoning demand for advanced AI infrastructure.
Building on this momentum, EscherCloudAI was born.
The company's mission is to create a comprehensive ecosystem of assets and capabilities, meticulously designed to meet the holistic needs of enterprise AI applications. Through a combination of development and strategic acquisitions, EscherCloudAI is steadily positioning itself as a leader in providing cutting-edge AI solutions, underpinned by a deep understanding of the sector's dynamics and a commitment to innovation.
At EscherCloudAI, we are more than just a company; we are a collective of visionaries and strategists, dedicated to empowering the AI-driven future.
