Taking part in Shark Tank Viet Nam season 5 in 2022, EM&AI achieved good results when we are in the TOP 5 BIGGEST DEAL with a “million dollar” handshake with Shark Liên. The negotiation between CEO Le Ngoc Tri and SHARKs also is the episode with the most views & discussions on social networks and startup forums.
1 year after launching at Sharktank, EM&AI quickly achieved each of the goals of the growth milestones. This further confirms the potential of EM&AI.
The Core AI Technology owned by Vietnamese people has impressed
Not using 3rd party APIs, EM&AI focuses on developing core AI technology from the beginning. Technologies specialising in Vietnamese speech and language processing included VNLP – natural language processing, STT – Speech to Text, TTS – Text to Speech and Voice ID – voice biometrics.
To meet the rigorous requirements of enterprise customers, EM&AI has constantly upgraded to improve our quality. So that, we confidently “lead” in the accuracy and processing speed of current technology cores.
When compared to market benchmarks, EM&AI is completely superior in metrics achieved.

Conquering large & leading businesses
In the last 6 months of 2022, the revenue of EM&AI grew more than 50% when compared to the same period last year. It is the result of the “seeding” process when EM&AI gradually conquers the leading “big players” in the industry such as FE Credit, Mirae Asset, Panasonic… Before becoming the official deployer, EM&AI has experienced stages of approaching, persuading and running tests, competing directly with strong domestic and foreign competitors, “technology corporations”. With unremitting efforts, the EM&AI team has “harvested sweet fruits” when the projects were successful beyond expectations and received high appreciation from customers.
For example, in 2022 EM&AI has piloted Voicebot AI Telesale for a financial enterprise. When compared with 2 other units deploying at the same time and with the same output, Voicebot AI Telesales has shown better results with a successful connection rate of 60% and revenue brought to customers. products account for 50% of total revenue.
