Leena AI founded in 2017, by IITD alumni Adit Jain, Mayank Goyal and Anand Prajapati raised $8 million in Series A round led by Greycroft to expand the startup’s go-to-market programmes and accelerate product development.
In an interaction with Entrepreneur India, Adit Jain, chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder of New York-headquartered Leena AI shares the journey and how the company pivoted its business model to achieve success.
It has happened many times, that a simple query regarding your leaves or if you wanted to know why there was a salary deduction, but received a reply five to six days later from the HR team? We all have been there, isn’t it? The utter frustration or annoyance building towards the HR team, because they failed to respond to a simple query even after one has followed all the steps cautiously takes a toll on your work.
While it is easy to point fingers at the HR team, one has to understand HR teams are always short of staff. A company generally employs three-four HR executives to deal with hundreds of employees. There are numerous complaints and queries that HRs receive on a daily basis, and it becomes strenuous for them to respond to all. Discovering this pain point, three IIT-Delhi alumni came with Leena AI to help the already overburdened HR teams around the world.
