What is Bonobo?
It all began with a great ape.
Bonobo was founded in 2017 with a simple mission: harness the power of conversational intelligence to improve customer relationships.
The idea was born when Bonobo’s co-founders, engineers with backgrounds in AI and deep learning, realized that companies were missing out on all the rich insights embedded in voice communication with customers.
In founding the company, they drew inspiration from the bonobo: an intelligent (and adorable) primate with an uncanny ability to understand human language. (Learn more about Kanzi here.) Like its namesake, Bonobo seeks to intuit the meaning behind speech as a way of improving relationships and interactions.
Headquartered in Tel Aviv, Bonobo currently works with some of the most dynamic and customer-centric organizations in the world. It doesn’t have any non-human customers. (Yet.)
