Anthony Claudia – Managing Director, Startups
There’s been a lot happening here at Symbl.ai lately. A whirlwind quarter for sure… We wrapped up our Series A, hired a ton of amazing people (and still hiring), and spun up a long list of stellar customers, all of them pushing the boundaries of Conversation Intelligence/AI. Before we blink, and 2021 comes to a close, I want to add one more exciting thing to the list… I’m thrilled to announce the official launch of Symbl.ai for Startups!
What is it?
Symbl.ai for Startups is a program for pre-seed to seed stage companies building the next generation of conversation-centric AI products and services.
How does it work?
Companies apply to the program, and if accepted, receive Symbl.ai credits and exclusive access to our amazing network of mentors, investors, and other like-minded founders. We will also be hosting virtual and in-person events, special panels and workshops on various topics from fundraising to product design.
Why are we doing this?
Aren’t you busy enough, you ask? The bottom line is, at Symbl.ai, we believe startups are where real innovation and impact happen. We are a startup after all. We understand the pace, the intensity, and the incredible journey founding teams undertake to materialize their vision. We passionately want to support founders on this journey and at the same time accelerate the Conversation Intelligence/AI market to build something wonderful together.
Over the past year we’ve worked intimately with several startups building on our platform, getting involved well beyond implementing Symbl.ai APIs into their product. It just kind of happened naturally. We’ve helped founders develop their go to market strategy, find funding, write pitch decks, and sometimes, quite frankly, just be a shoulder to cry on when needed. All of that on top of implementing their own product or service on the Symbl.ai platform. What we realized engaging at this level was that the benefit was twofold.
First, we were accelerating the execution and adoption of CAI products and services in the market. The more amazing companies out there creating magical experiences using conversational intelligence the more mature the market becomes and in turn broadens our opportunity. Also the rapid pace of development and innovation that happens at startups is an amazing source of feedback and iteration for our own products here at Symbl.ai.
Second, it just feels damn good to help other founders and companies succeed… So we decided to make it official. Welcome to Symbl.ai for Startups
In the coming weeks and months we will be launching a lot of new content, events, and evolving the structure of the program. We’re also really excited to be working very closely with amazing organizations like Women In Voice and the Alexa Fund as some of our first partners. We are constantly growing our partner network so if you’re an accelerator, incubator, investor or platform interested in referring portfolio companies to the Symbl.ai Startups program, we hope you get in touch.
To all the founders out there building amazing things, we’re here for you. The team at Symbl.ai could not be more excited to be launching this new program. We hope you apply today.
