How our Silicon Valley program led to a global acquisition!

MIT Enterprise Forum Alumni, Wrappup, a company behind one of the most popular AI note taking apps, announced being acquired by California-based Voicera, a pioneer in the artificial intelligence and productivity space.

Back in 2015, Wrappup was one of the startups that participated in the “Arab World Meets Silicon Valley” program, run by MIT EF Pan Arab. The program aims at empowering startup founders looking for strategic partnerships, expansion into the US market, and international exposure, as well as networking and fundraising opportunities.

“Your [MIT EF Pan Arab] endorsement definitely went a long way, as was the entire MIT EF experience, would have never met Voicera otherwise!,” tweeted Rami Salman, Wrappup co-founder and CEO, who will now take on the role of VP of Growth at Voicera.

The Wrappup team will be joining Voicera to work on a platform growth, as well as cutting edge AI research and development. “As of today, we have rebranded the Wrappup app under the Voicera name.”

“We are so proud that one of our MIT EF Arab Startup finalists of 2016 has been acquired by Silicon Valley-based Voicera,” said Hala Fadel, MIT EF Pan Arab Chairperson, congratulating the Wrappup team.

“This acquisition significantly accelerates our journey toward delivering amazingly productive meeting experiences for our users.” Salman says.
