I hope this email finds you in great spirits. I wanted to reach out and share a heartfelt story behind my journey and the creation of Sttabot, a project that has become a labor of love for me. By understanding the personal motivation behind it, I believe you will connect even more deeply with the vision of Sttabot and our shared mission.
Allow me to introduce myself—I’m Udit Akhouri, the maker of Sttabot. I have spent countless hours crafting commercial emails, highlighting Sttabot, its incredible products, LTDs, and exciting updates. Yet, I have never truly delved into the reasons that compelled me to leave my job as an investment banker, return to my hometown, and embark on this solitary endeavor to build Sttabot.
To be honest, I feel it is crucial for you to grasp why I am investing every waking moment into this platform. Why am I pouring my heart and soul into it, working more than 100 hours per week, all by myself? It is only through understanding this deep-rooted drive that you can truly align with the vision of Sttabot and join me in this extraordinary journey.
From 2019 to 2021, I served as the Chief Technology Officer of Bully AI, a firm based in Philadelphia. Eventually, Bully AI was acquired, granting me a favorable exit. In April 2021, I, along with some close friends, founded Aim Capital—an investment firm that has since established 18+ startup incubation centers across India and invested in over 200 startups within a remarkably short span of 24 months. Life was good, but then something extraordinary happened: OpenAI introduced GPT3.
You see, during my time at Bully AI, we strived to automate customer support using API.AI, which proved highly effective for our users. However, we soon realized that its scalability was limited. Our dataset consisted of over 2 million queries, which pales in comparison to the staggering 175 billion queries handled by GPT3. The implications became clear: to build scalable applications on this technology, one would require even greater resources. As someone with a strong technical background, I simply couldn’t resist the allure of this challenge. So, I took the leap.
Fortunately, I had a reliable team in place to oversee Aim Capital, allowing me to return to my hometown and reside with my parents. This decision enabled me to devote even more time and energy to my passion project. I personally coded the entire Sttabot platform and took to Twitter to spread the word about our creation. Along the way, I experienced both triumphs and setbacks, but here we are, steadily moving forward and edging closer to our next significant update.
This time, our focus is laser-sharp: we are dedicated to building a tool for creators, for individuals like you, empowering them to effortlessly create and monetize their own AI applications. However, I promise to share more about this exciting development at a later time.
Before I conclude, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support. It was a leap of faith to introduce you to this product, hoping that you would see its potential, and you did. Now, I humbly request that you continue to explore the platform, create more apps, and enthusiastically share Sttabot with your friends. By doing so, we can amplify our impact and make working on Sttabot an even more exhilarating adventure.
You, my friend, are one of the earliest believers in Sttabot, and I consider you a brand ambassador for this extraordinary product. I want to congratulate you for accompanying us on this journey thus far, but there is much more to accomplish together. Our goal is to reach 10,000 users within the next 30 days, and with your invaluable efforts, we can make it happen.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your unwavering support. Your commitment to Sttabot means the world to me.
