About Us

Evie.ai is the company behind Evie, the artificially intelligent assistant for the 99%.  

Our cofounder Jin fell in love with AI through his passion for science fiction. His first encounter with AI was Jane from the Ender’s Game series. Jane was Ender’s artificially intelligent assistant who helped defend him against his enemies and served as his closest friend.

In 2014, Jin set out to rebuild Jane in real life — and Evie is the result.

We are on a mission to free people from having to juggle busywork while doing their real jobs.

Evie’s initial task is to help her users manage their schedules and organize meetings.

Evie runs on state-of-the-art natural language processing technology and an engine that enables her to understand real-world concepts like time, locations, and human relationships.

Our Team

Jin Hian Lee

Cofounder

Jin is the tech co-founder of Evie, and is passionate about building solutions to tomorrow’s greatest challenges. Jin leads a team of world-class product managers & engineers that are dedicated to building the A.I. assistant that will power the future of work. Jin graduated from Stanford University with BSc. & MSc. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1999, and has spent fifteen years building and launching innovative mobile & Internet media products on a global scale at companies like Yahoo. In his spare time, Jin likes to kick back with his friends over a bottle of wine. Evie is his best friend (we’re only half joking).

Praveen is the business co-founder of Evie. He enjoys finding ways to connect people to each other. Before Evie, Praveen headed up Network Development for Maker Studios in Asia, and was the Business Development lead for Yahoo! in Southeast Asia, where he met Jin. Praveen has a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Melbourne and a M.A. in Legal and Political Theory from University College London. Both in and outside of work, Praveen enjoys telling corny jokes, and then gets disappointed when no one else laughs at them.
