Leading voice AI Company, Skit, announced today announced the appointment of Dr. Ashish Gupta as an independent member of its Board of Directors. Ashish holds more than two decades of leadership and board experience from several successful technology companies. At Skit, he will be actively involved in helping Skit in all aspects of the business including organization building, product positioning, and go-to-market execution.
“We are pleased to have Ashish onboard to help us navigate the next stage of growth for the company. Together, we will work towards building a future-ready, AI-enabled product for our customers across the globe,” said Sourabh Gupta, CEO, and co-founder of Skit. “Ashish will help further fuel innovation for Skit across all three markets, to transform customer engagement. He will work closely with our leadership team and this will be a huge step in helping us transform our vision into reality.”
Ashish has started several enterprises in his career including Junglee (AMZN), Tavant Technologies, Helion Ventures, and Drishti Technologies. He has invested in several startups and businesses including Flipkart, MuSigma, MakeMyTrip (MMYT), redBus, Upwork (UPWK), and Infoedge (NAUKRI), among others, and served as a board member in several of them.
“Skit’s approach is revolutionary in the voice enablement market which has traditionally only ‘pulled together’ pieces from different vendors. By having control of the full stack, Skit has the flexibility needed to deliver a great experience while retaining the ability to work across different applications. Much like what the full-stack approach did for apple (with the iPhone) or Amazon (with etailing), Skit too has the potential to usher in a new era for how customers interact with complex pieces of software like banking systems, insurance, and credit systems, shopping applications, booking systems and a lot more. I look forward to the privilege of working with Sourabh, Akshay, and the Skit team to help redefine how customers use voice to interact with software systems. Their strategic thinking, learning agility, execution skills, and hunger, equip them to build a large company in this nascent and enormous space,” said Dr. Ashish Gupta.
