My guest today is Ramu Sunkara, co-founder and CEO of Alan AI.
In 2014, Ramu co-founded a company called Synqq which was a voice
assistant for meetings. Sometimes startups are for learning. Synqq
educated Ramu and his co-founder that enterprises truly needed
voice for enterprise apps. That led to the creation of Alan AI
which has been his focus since 2017.
Earlier in his career, Ramu was co-founder and CEO of Qik
which was a video streaming solution for mobile and was acquired by
Skype in 2011. Before that, he spent 11 years at Oracle, serving
in, among other roles, vice president of e-Business suite
technology, and vice president of real-time collaboration
Ramu was trained as a software engineer and holds a master's
degree in computer science from the University of Wisconsin and
earned an MBA at Boston University.
