BoldVoice (YC S21) empowers non-native English speakers in the global workforce to speak English clearly and confidently, so they can thrive professionally. (TechCrunch feature) (Hacker News feature) (Forbes feature)

Users watch video lessons on pronunciation and public speaking from Hollywood coaches, and then improve their fluency by practicing and getting real-time AI feedback from the app.

We are a nimble team of four full-timers, plus a few star Hollywood speech coaches. We have raised ~$2.75m in funding, and have a healthy runway and ambitious plans.

Our mission is to reach 28 million immigrant professionals in the US, and 500 million globally, to help them improve their English and advance their careers. This is where you come in!
