26-Year-Old From Kochi Started Startup During COVID and Now In Forbes List

Ashwin Sreenivas, a 26-year-old from Kochi manages to hit the Forbes list. His enterprise startup, Campfire is now 30 under 30 lists of Forbes. Campfire is a startup that brings managers together using Artificial Intelligence. Since community plays a major role in any corporate, they need to be taken into consideration.

Ashwin says,

‘Communities create enormous value for the company that they are built around. But from a brand perspective, there are very few tools available to them to manage, engage and grow these communities’

Let’s understand this with the help of an example. Suppose you are a corporation that makes smartphones. Just like any other company, you will also want to know how your audience feels about your product, what they talk about, and what sorts of videos and blog posts are created related to your product.

Sreeniva’s Campfire uses the SaaS model to collect all the necessary information regarding your data and try to get answers to the above questions.

In his words, ‘We plug in your existing platform and give you all the insights. So you have the benefit of all the historical activity that you have probably seen on platforms like Github, Twitter, Subreddit, or Discord for years’
