Investor Network by JD has a group of MIT alumni that are investing in companies founded by MIT alumni and students.  Today we profile one of their investments into Voiceme.AI LLC.

DISCLOSURE: Investor Network does not invest in companies, but is a networking group help facilitate forming special purpose vehicles (SPVs) with like-minded people.  This investment was picked by a group formed by MIT Alumni.  The group has invested in 7 companies to date this year with Voiceme.AI closing this month.

ABOUT VOICEME.AI

The MIT group has made two investments in this MIT alumni’s company to date.

VoiceMe.AI connects the deskless workforce using an AI-powered voice assistant that is optimized for executing communication and improves:

  • Operational Efficiency
  • Job Completion Rate
  • Legal Compliance
  • Data Capture and Retention
  • Communication Speed

Our solution enables hands-free enterprise messaging – think of a mobilized Slack for employees on-the-go where communication is executed and received via voice.  VoiceMe.AI’s platform currently consists of an Android app that can work seamlessly with off-the-shelf, third-party ear devices that are either Bluetooth or wired.  Our proprietary Natural Language Processing, Natural Language Understanding, and Named Entity Recognition models have been custom built from the ground up around the informal, conversational, communication domain.
