The back story

Let me take you back to 2015. I was the CTO of a financial services company, and I was faced with an increasingly large amount of support. The normal way of solving this is by hiring more support people and making a longer FAQ page.

But I thought why try to make our users learn our software – perhaps we should make our software learn how to understand what our users want. We wanted our users to get things done by speaking directly to the application in natural language.

I started looking around to find a framework to make my life easier and I couldn't find any. So I went ahead and built it.

About a year later, more and more people started building chatbots, and this is when we decided to open-source it. Within weeks thousands of developers were using it. Not too long after, our first Fortune 500 came knocking and this is when we really saw the potential of supporting the most popular dev tool for conversational AI by monetizing an enterprise offering.

Since then, Organizations from all over the world started building with Botpress and became customers. The likes of Quebec Government, Windstream, Husqvarna, VR Bank, and many others have adopted Botpress to build conversational AI applications for their customers or employees.
