S1E4 - HyperVerge: The game-changer in deploying a fraud detection solution at scale using cutting edge AI | Kedar Kulkarni
In this podcast, We are in conversation with Kedar Kulkarni, CEO of HyperVerge a company that began in 2014 as a Consumer AI product company that went for a crowdfunding campaign but managed to raise a few million dollars in funding. When they were two months away from the launch of the product Google Photos came in and essentially made the product being developed by them useless. There was a chance to basically sell the company at a high valuation and go for an awesome exit but they decided to persist as the idea behind starting the company was to solve a problem.  When there was about $500,000 left in the account, on their soul searching journey to transform the company they meet Sridhar Vembu, Founder of Zoho who gave them the direction and deep-diving into the pieces of technology which was built. With the help of mentors along the way pivoted the company to a leader in Digital KYC and now working on Video KYC. A place where the culture is built to treat Humans as capital and not a resource, the onboarding is a long process as the person joins the team to be part of the long-term journey. It takes a village to raise a startup and its initiatives to upskill the people so that they can raise the economic standard of their family and during the Covid pandemic, the financial and mentoring support provided to nano-entrepreneurs touches the heart. Inspired by Batman and the learnings from Isha Leadership Academy gives a glimpse and insight into how passionate people with a vision to create an impact come together to build a thriving organization which solves a genuine challenge and in the process impacts the lives of millions of people such that during the pandemic, a client which had an in-house team to take over the work being done by HyperVerge as a vendor chooses to work with HyperVerge.
