Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates ambitious entrepreneurs building a better world
PALO ALTO, Calif. — June 14, 2023 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced that Dr. Muddu, CEO and Co-founder of Aisera, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Bay Area Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Dr. Sudhakar was recognized for his successful entrepreneurial efforts using innovations in Generative AI and GPT architecture to solve enterprise service challenges around user productivity, efficiency, revenue growth, customer satisfaction and operational expenses.
“Today, we sit at the precipice of transformative change, harnessing the power of AI to progress business and user experiences,” said Dr. Muddu. “At Aisera, we saw the opportunity to apply Generative AI through the development of AiseraGPT. The net result is an AI Co-pilot that is the most advanced personal assistant to IT service operations, customer service and support, software development, and contact center operations. This award is a testament to our team, investors and the entrepreneurial spirit that prioritizes innovation and delivers exceptional solutions for customers.”
Dr. Muddu started Aisera in 2017 because he saw fundamental challenges emerging within elements of the IT services market. The company pioneered the development of a Universal Bot along with domain and industry-specific large language models (LLMs). His mission for the company, aggressive go-to-market, and proven success with Fortune 500 companies helped grow the company into what it is today—the leading provider of Generative AI solutions for organizations.
