ZEPIC Inc., the customer experience software startup, has closed a $2.1 million pre-seed funding round. Neon Fund invested $500,000 along with angel investors working in senior positions at Apple, Chargebee, Freshworks, Microsoft, and Chennai-based Zoho.

The startup has also announced the launch of its platform, which enables businesses with unprecedented opportunities for hyper-personalized customer engagement.

Who are the founders?

Founded in 2023 by Naveen Venkatesan, Bharathi Kannan Ravikumar, Sunil Kumar and Sreelesh Pillai, ZEPIC is a Delaware-headquartered SaaS company dedicated to revolutionizing customer engagement through hyper-personalization.


"Our core mission is to empower businesses to personalise communications. To personalize, and in real-time, businesses need to respect and make easily available business and customer data," added Sreelesh Pillai, co-founder and Business Head of ZEPIC. 

"Businesses are also overwhelmed with data. ZEPIC provides the opportunity to bring together just what is needed, wherever the data is. "Garbage in, garbage out" is the case today in many enterprises with plenty of data, but with ZEPIC you have the chance to start over a clean slate without breaking things technology-wise, cost-wise, or culture-wise.”
