About Us

Founded in 2016, Encounter Store aims to push the boundaries of next generation human-machine interaction with AI technology. Encounter Store has developed it’s own voice technologies in the fields of voice recognition, natural language processing, and vertical search. Through its creation of critically acclaimed consumer products in wearables, automobile and home product categories, Encounter Store’s rich accumulation of experience in the application of AI has in turn driven continued innovation in its core voice-based technologies.

To date, Encounter Store has raised 6 rounds of funding, led by firms including SIG, Sequoia Capital, Zhenfund, Google and Volkswagen. In addition, Encounter Store’s close strategic partnership with Google through Android Wear and Google Assistant as well as its joint-venture with Volkswagen Group place it at the forefront of solving many real world problems and scenarios with voice-based AI.
