Company description
Pundit makes talking fun and private. It is an augmented voice messaging platform where users are able to talk to each other by sending entertaining and ephemeral voice messages. On Pundit, users are able to augment their voice to express themselves in entirely new voices and in accompanying musical moods - making talking much more delightful again. For example, I can send my friends voice messages or talk to them in the voice of chipmunk, monster, or even from Disney brands such as Baby Dory. As companies like Snapchat has led the way for millions to communicate by augmenting their vision, Pundit is modernizing the talking experience by augmenting people's voices. Pundit has been recognized in publications such as TechCrunch, Mashable, Inc, and more. We were awarded Inc's 30 Coolest College Startups as well as featured in TechCrunch Disrupt SF - Startup Battlefield. Pundit's first investors include the global accelerator Techstars, as well as The Walt Disney Company - who provided both funding and mentorship to the Pundit team including from Bob Iger, Disney CEO, and Andy Bird, Chairman of Walt Disney International. Pundit is also working with various Disney business units including Studios, Marvel - to introduce an entirely new level of fan engagement with their brands using. When Pundit's core teenagers users are able to speak to their friends in the voice of Darth Vader, they become obsessed, loyal users. At the end, Pundit's goals are bigger than merely creating a messaging platform. The future of UI is voice, and Pundit wants to be the gateway to the voice-based technology world. As companies like Google and Amazon are investing billions of dollars into voice-based technologies, we believe that it first takes an entertainment-based voice platform like Pundit to become ubiquitous before the average user can interact with voice-based AI technologies like Jarvis.
