2021 Report: Thank You For An Incredible Year

From all of our team here at Speak Ai - we wish you a year full of abundance, joy and growth.

Speak Team

A 2021 Reflection & Look Forward

2021 was a definitive year for Speak Ai. In 2019 and 2020, we built a strong technological foundation as we faced unforeseen global challenges.

There were times when all our team wanted was to get feedback so that we could learn and improve.

In 2021, that desire began to manifest. With growing awareness, we saw our platform transform into something people need, use and value.

There is still a lot of work ahead, but we feel privileged to have the opportunity to serve people, solve problems, and do what we love.
