California-based AI firm Glean Technologies expands to India

California-based AI company Glean Technologies is expanding its global presence with a brand new office in Bengaluru, India. This 26,000-square-foot space will serve as the central hub for all their Indian operations, encompassing finance, sales, research and development, and business functions.

Founded in 2019 by Arvind Jain, Vishwanath T R, Tony Gentilcore, and Piyush Prahladka, Glean Technologies specializes in enterprise search and knowledge management solutions.

“We are thrilled to establish our presence in India, especially in Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of the country, and a market with immense potential and a steady demand for advanced AI solutions. Our Bengaluru office will enable us to closely collaborate with Indian enterprises, helping them unlock the full potential of their knowledge through our state-of-the-art AI platform,” said Arvind Jain, Founder and CEO at Glean Technologies.  

“Additionally, this office will serve as a crucial hub for our global operations, driving a significant portion of our international projects. In fact, it will be our biggest investment outside of the US,” he added.

Glean Technologies’ core technology connects a company’s various applications and databases. This allows users to search for, access, and manage their data and information seamlessly across different platforms.

Despite being founded just a few years ago, in 2019, the Palo Alto-based company has achieved impressive success. The company has secured $350 million in funding from top investment firms and boasts a current valuation exceeding $2.2 billion. 

To fuel its growth, Glean Technologies plans to significantly expand its workforce, aiming to increase from 150 employees to over 450 within the following year. This expansion includes targeting top graduates from India’s prestigious IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology) in Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Madras, and Kharagpur. In fact, they’ve already hired around 12 talented students since December of last year.

Glean Technologies has developed conversational AI assistants that utilize advanced language models. These AI assistants can access a company’s internal information systems to provide personalized summaries and responses to user queries.

Looking to expand its reach, Glean Technologies is actively building its customer base in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The firm has already secured partnerships with several prominent companies, including a Southeast Asian commercial bank, a global electronics and entertainment firm, and a global automotive manufacturer.
