Top Executive: Surbhi Rathore, CEO and co-founder

Headquarters: Seattle

Seattle-based Symbl.ai offers AI-powered tools to build and deploy conversation intelligence in speech, text and video-driven applications.

Users can extract summary topics, topic hierarchies and scope from unstructured conversation data, according to the company’s website. They can measure topic-based sentiments and generate insights including follow-ups, topics, questions and intentions to make applications more personalized.

This year, the company has held hackathon events to educate developers on using its tools and services and to find more integrations and functionality between Symbl’s APIs and popular tools and platforms, offering $5,000 in prizes.

In May, Symbl.ai released a beta version of Trackers, a tool to recognize contextual similarities to better track key phrases, custom intents and business insights. Users in quality assurance, for example, can track negative words such as “skeptical” and “issue” when they pop up in conversation. Users in sales can track pricing details when they come up in conversation.

The company was founded in 2018 and has raised about $7 million to date, according to Crunchbase.
