Why we Founded Skan?
The genesis of Skan is rooted in the practical experience of our founders while working on automation and transformation projects for Fortune 500 companies and seeing bots flail and flail and millions in digitalization efforts not yielding fruit. This led to a realization that without understanding processes and their variants and the resulting operational intelligence any intervention such as digitalization, automation and optimization are futile.
Skan’s unique approach leverages computer vision, deep learning, and machine intelligence to observe, learn, assemble, and optimize business processes without intrusion or integration. The output in the form of a process metamodel and digital process twins makes it a breeze to model, simulate, and measure the future state in a sandbox.
Skan is headquartered in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley with a development center in Bangalore, India.
Skan’s founding team is a blend of entrepreneurs, technologists, data scientists, and AI experts – all well versed in the challenges and opportunities at large enterprises with complex business and IT landscapes.
Zetta Ventures, Bloomberg Beta, Firebolt Ventures and Plug and Play Ventures led the Series A investment to power Skan.
AI’s quest to re-invent the process mining space with an innovative approach leveraging computer vision and machine intelligence to unveil the invisible enterprise and unlock value in automation and transformation efforts.
