Samson Avetian talks to Tigran Petrosyan, co-founder and CEO of SuperAnnotate, a platform to annotate, manage and automate computer vision projects. They talked about the firm's experimentation and validation approach used to gain customer following, growth in the role "from product to scaling," making pivots and strategic choices, assembling and leveraging strong advisor and board backing, Berkeley SkyDeck experience and much more.
Tigran Petrosyan is the co-founder and CEO of SuperAnnotate, a company in the annotation industry whose services are key for the Machine Learning process. Together with his brother Vahan, they dropped out of their respective PhD programs in Switzerland and Sweden respectively to pursue an idea backed by a groundbreaking approach to annotation. As recently as a few weeks ago they concluded a multi-million dollar fundraising round, entered a cooperation agreement and have generally been considered as one of Armenia's most promising start-ups.
