Sourabh Gupta
CEO

“Our vision is to solve the language problem for a billion Indians using AI. In a country of more than 1.3 billion people, only about 150 million can understand English. For others, internet is a white space. We are looking to build India specific products to solve this problem. We are honored to be supported by Kstart and really happy to see them appreciate and share our vision.”  – Sourabh Gupta, CEO

The Idea

Vernacular.ai is building NLP Technology in Indian Languages to enable businesses interact and engage with their multi-lingual customers in the languages preferred by them. The first offering we have is multi-lingual conversational agents for businesses.

What made you take the entrepreneurial plunge?

The urge to build products that touch people’s life everyday with the dream of making successful product company out of India is what made us start Vernacular.ai. The idea of building something for a billion Indians and to leverage this audience’s potential by understanding their needs is what keeps us going.

What brought you to Kstart?

We were fortunate enough to get associated with Kstart pretty early in the journey as Entrepreneurs in Residence. Looking at the kind of initiatives Kstart was taking to improve the ecosystem, and the portfolio Kalaari has, we didn’t give it a second thought. From mentorship & feedback to connections, Kstart has helped us significantly.
