In 2013, Tanmaya Jain founded inFeedo as a SaaS-based people predictive analytics firm to help several enterprises. Its prominent customers include Dunkin Donuts, Puma, Airtel, GE, Tata, Kotak, and many more for redefining employee engagement. In 2016, inFeedo had launched its employee-experience bot Amber to help the HR functions of global organizations.
