We are Orai

An early-stage startup based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, our team consists of students, young professionals, and robots. Okay fine, not actual robots, but we are in fact using artificial intelligence to help solve what is considered one of the largest fears in the world: Public Speaking. Our mission is to give people across the world the confidence and skills to speak more powerfully when on stage, in front of a room, or even in everyday life. After all, you're only as good as your word - and if the words aren't coming out right... well that would suck wouldn't it?
