COMPANY 


Mindsay helps companies to provide 1-to-1 care at scale through conversations, unleashing team’s potentials by handling repetitive tasks and letting them focus on high value interactions.

Mindsay has 3 main differentiators that ensure a competitive advantage from the many chatbot providers on the market : we provide fully-trained AI chatbot use cases that our customers can adapt and deploy easily; we provide an end-to-end Saas platform to build, monitor and manage any chatbot without code, no matter how complex the use cases; and we have developed an algorithm that can analyze conversations in real time to grade them and trigger actions accordingly.

Founded in 2016, after two rounds of investments for a total of 12M$, Mindsay counts +30 enterprise customers across Europe and US market with 40% of them outside of France. As of September 2020, Mindsay’s team gathers 35 people with many having an international background.
