Origins in 1997
X0PA has its origins in 1997, when our CEO and Founder, Nina Alag Suri, launched Nastrac Group, a global executive search firm, which she successfully ran for 20 years. It was through this venture that she realized the inefficiencies and subjectivity of traditional hiring processes and thus decided to disrupt her own business and pivot to an AI and ML SaaS-based platform with X0PA AI.
X0PA AI was then founded in 2017. Our company is headquartered in Singapore and our engineering team is based out of India. Since then, X0PA has expanded to the UK and the UAE and we deliver services globally across a wide variety of industries.
