Episode Description

In this episode, Akarsh Shrivastava (Principal, Elevation Capital) speaks to Sarthak Jain (Founder, Nanonets) on his journey of building a world-class AI-driven data automation platform from India.

Nanonets is a No Code AI-driven automation platform giving businesses smarter ways to run document-based operations such as capturing data, storing and routing documents associated with spend management, procurement processes, loyalty reward programs, and more. Nanonets provides businesses with both user-interface components and APIs that can be connected to business data sources and can be used to update ERP, SAP, and accounting software (among others) to streamline document workflow processes. Their solution has truly democratized document automation by making it accessible to SMB and mid-market customers. What excited us about Nanonets was how the product was cutting-edge but still easy to use and how Sarthak and Prathamesh had figured out a scalable PMF with very little capital.

Listen to Sarthak as he talks about the early days of Nanonets, his approach to building his A-team, and more.
