Gushwork.ai | Marketplace For AI-augmented Remote Workforce
Founded by Nayrhit Bhattacharya and Adithya Venkatesh, Gushwork.ai offers a curated marketplace of an AI-trained human task force that can execute complex business processes, allowing businesses to focus on strategic tasks while entrusting routine operations to Gushwork.
The startup provides businesses with a reliable solution to delegate critical operational tasks by bringing the best of humans and AI together.
Speaking about the development, Nayrhit Bhattacharya, Co-founder of Nayrhit Bhattacharya, said,
“Getting in-house employees to work on recurring, manual tasks or spending months trying to imperfectly automate these processes is suboptimal. The complexity of these tasks is such that companies do not trust AI to execute them without human oversight. We want to embed AI in the business operations by bringing in human touch on top of AI to solve the lack of trust.”
Currently, the startup is primarily focusing on sales and marketing operations workflows. It encompasses tasks such as email marketing, ad management, lead prospecting, lead engagement on social media platforms, webinar moderation & marketing, social media analytics data scraping, and ad campaign management, among others.
Gushwork.ai claims to have witnessed substantial demand, with over 50 businesses adopting its product within the first three months of operation. According to the startup, these early adopters have delegated 200+ tedious workflows to Gush, translating to weekly savings of 1000 person-hours.
In addition to using the raised funds to build new features, the startup plans to invest this capital in content-led organic marketing and personal branding channels to accelerate its growth while building a global network of remote AI specialists.
