My client is a well-funded, profitable, AI startup, funded by some of Silicon Valley’s top venture capitalists who were early investors in Tesla, SpaceX, Slack, and Twitter. Additionally, they are backed by legendary angel investor David Cheriton.

They use proprietary technologies for speech recognition, speaker separation, speaker ID, and keyword/topic extraction, to build the market-leading Voice Notes app. They just signed a major partnership with Zoom to transcribe complete zoom meetings of up to 20 people, instantly, seamlessly.
