Delv AI: Pranjali Awasthi, a 16-year-old genius from India has created a sensation in the field of technology. In fact, at the age of 16, the student has set up an AI company worth crores in which 10 people work. That is, at the age when children are in 11th or 12th and are confused about what lies ahead, Pranjali has set up an AI company. The student has started an AI startup named Delv.AI whose valuation is more than 12 million dollars.
Pranjali Awasthi told during the Miami Tech Week event that she founded her company in January 2022 and till now she has successfully secured funding of about Rs 3.7 crore. That means in less than 2 years he has built a company worth crores. This is a surprising thing in itself. According to the company's LinkedIn profile, it currently employs 10 people. Pranjali credits her father as her primary source of inspiration for starting her own business and reaching the million mark today. The student said that she started coding at the age of just 7 years.
Pranjali's love for science and tech started when her father asked her to study this subject and pursue a career in it.
The student received better opportunities when her family moved to Florida at the age of 11, and she participated in computer science classes and competitive mathematics programs. After this, at the age of 13, Pranjali did an internship at Florida International University Research Laboratories from where his mind of setting up his own company became firm and he started working in this direction.
During the internship, the student worked on machine learning projects and also completed her schooling virtually. At the same time, Open AI had also launched Chat GPT Beta 3, which gave the student the idea of doing research data extraction and summarization using AI. During this period Delv.AI was conceived and work started on it. The student's objective was to use machine learning to improve data extraction and eliminate data silos.
Pranjali Awasthi's journey reached an important milestone when she joined the AI Startup Accelerator run by Lucy Guo and Dave Fontenot of Backend Capital in Miami. He revealed that the beta launch of Delv.AI on Product Hunt was an extraordinary success and from there he started working on it even better. For those who don't know what Product Hunt is, Product Hunt is a platform that helps anyone share their software with people for free.
The student says that the primary goal of Delv.AI is to help researchers efficiently access specific information amid the growing online content. The accelerator program played a key role in helping Pranjali secure investments from On Deck and Village Global. Delv.AI raised $4,50,000 (approximately Rs 3.7 crore) in total funding and currently has an estimated valuation of $12 million.
