Keeping the momentum going: following recent successes, Zoom.ai wins $100,000 and claims title of Best Technology Pitch at OpenText Enterprise World 2017.

In 2016 when Zoom.ai was conceived, we imagined a world where employees were no longer time crunched and overwhelmed by apps, and we saw a reality where enterprises could attract and retain the next generation of employees — but how? It all started with a question: “What if everyone in your company had their own executive assistant?”

The Zoom.ai team saw a chance to create something for the modern workplace that allowed their employees to focus on higher level tasks, and leave the more operational day-to-day work behind. In the last 18 months, we’ve seen such an overwhelming amount of support and trust from our customers — one that has helped us propel further and further.

Late last week, after Jesse Albiston, our Head of Customer Success, pitched to a joint C-level and venture capitalist panel, we’re pleased to announce that we placed first out of 29 contenders and claimed the title of OpenText’s Best Technology Pitch.

“Having a huge, established enterprise software vendor like OpenText award us this prize is a great validation of our vision to enhance every employee’s experience in the modern enterprise. The pitch was a unified team effort that brought together our latest learnings from our enterprise customers. From our win at CIX20 and the HR Tech Den to our recent closing of a $2.1M seed round, this OpenText win is a sincere expression of the trust and confidence our AI solution is garnering from the global tech community,” enthused Founder and CEO, Roy Pereira.

With this prize of $100,000 and a year’s free entrance into the OpenText Global Partner Program, we have the opportunity to accelerate our capabilities and vision to enhance every employee’s experience in the modern enterprise.
