Creative designer team meeting discussion ideas on desk

In part one of my conversation with Krish Ramineni, the co-founder and CEO of, he told us about his efforts to create a virtual assistant that takes notes at your meeting, and can even attend them without you.

In this second part of our conversation, Krish talks about what it was like moving out to San Francisco to start a company, with no experience and no connections—and why he decided not to raise VC funding initially.

He also shares some of his personal philosophy on exactly what a company should focus on when bringing a product from idea to market.
