Bengaluru-based Generative AI Startup Sarvam AI has raised $41 million in Series A funding round which was led by Lightspeed.

Vivek Raghavan has more than 10 years of experience in creating digital public products like Aadhaar and Kumar has experience in creating products like AI4Bharat. The combination of these two will take the Indian AI startup ecosystem to great heights.
