    Using AI to Build Relationships with Rabi Gupta 

    Rabi Gupta is the Co-Founder and CEO of Evabot, an AI-based corporate gifting platform that makes it super easy for businesses to send highly personalized gifts to their clients and employees, which helps them build authentic relationships that grow their companies. 

    They serve 1000+ businesses, including giants like Facebook, Microsoft, Oracle, AT&T, Zendesk, Silicon Valley Bank, and Cigna.  

    Corporate gifting has proven effective, with 66% of people who received a promotional product/gift remembering the brand and 79% saying they would do business with the company again. 

    Before Evabot, Rabi was also a Co-Founder of iCouchapp, an Indian-based TV show recommendations and social engagement app that had 2M+ monthly active users by the time he sold the company in 2016. 

    After the sale, Rabi took a bold step to move to Silicon Valley to start a new company. With no relationships there, he used gifts to build his network but got frustrated by the lack of technology to make gifting easier. So, together with a few friends, he solved this problem using AI, and that's how Evabot was born.
