Argo AI co-founders launching another self-driving startup in Pittsburgh

The co-founders of Strip District-based autonomous vehicle startup Argo AI LLC are looking to launch another company in the self-driving industry following Argo’s shuttering last fall, and they’re planning to base that venture here in Pittsburgh.

Bryan Salesky, past CEO of Argo, and Peter Rander, past president, have already hired about 50 employees, some of whom are Pittsburgh-based, and the yet-to-be-unveiled autonomous vehicle company has reportedly secured funding from an investor, according to a published report and confirmed by a source familiar with what they have planned. Salesky and Rander could not be reached for comment as of the publication of this article.
