Surbhi is CEO and co-founder of Symbl.ai. Symbl is bringing to life her vision for a programmable platform that empowers developers to deploy conversational intelligence in their collaboration products and workflows. She co-founded Symbl (previously Rammer.ai) almost 2 years ago and was part of the Techstars Seattle ’19 class. Symbl raised an early-stage venture round of 1.8M six months ago.

She comes with experience from technical and customer-obsessed roles in both startups and enterprises such as Nevis Networks and Amdocs. Before co-founding Symbl, she worked in the Conversational AI space with a focus on delivering value to Telco users. She is an advocate for Women in AI with a personal mission to inspire more women to work in Data Science.
