People.ai

About Us

We’re on a mission to be the AI platform for all business activity across every organization.

Data-Driven To The Core

People.ai is on a mission to be the AI Platform for all business activity, building the sales automation tools the modern organization needs to be more productive. We’re starting by solving the age old problem of sales and marketing alignment, but in a completely new way. We believe that by using our sales automation tools to automate manual tasks (like logging activities into your CRM), you’ll have more time in your day to focus on what’s most important to your business, and sales and marketing teams get the data they need to align and thrive.

Founded in 2016, People.ai is based in San Francisco.
