The criteria for Most Promising AI Startups 

How did we get selected among so many innovators? Business Insider took a unique approach by asking top venture capitalists to spotlight the most promising AI startups of 2023. These VCs also had to name companies to which they had no financial connections. Sharing this honor with other trailblazers in the AI sector truly amplifies our joy. As for why we made the cut, here’s the scoop directly from Business Insider:

When considering recording, voice acting, and post-production costs, both internal and external company presentations can burn a hole in your pocket. Enter WellSaid, an AI solution that drastically reduces time and money typically spent on training presentations, ad campaigns, and more. Yip labels the startup as a “top-performing product” in the industry.

Our take on being a promising AI startup

What makes an AI startup promising? It’s not just one thing; it’s a blend of several:

Problem-solution fit 

The essence of a promising AI startup lies in addressing a real-world problem. It’s not enough to be innovative. The solution should also be practical and superior to existing ones. We’ve worked hard to go beyond the robotic tones of standard text-to-speech, achieving human-like naturalness and boasting an impressive MOS of 4.5/5.
