X0PA AI was founded in 2017 by Nina Alag Suri and Co-Founder Dr Jussi Keppo.
Previously, Nina was the Founder and CEO of a global executive search firm, Nastrac Group and 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 is headquartered in Singapore and has offices across APAC, India, UK, UAE and partners across the globe.
