In a Timeline


The birth of an idea. Founder Baba Nadimpalli decided it was time to break the mould of the industrial revolution and make work purposeful again.


SKAEL was founded with the vision to help people work smarter.


The Digital Employee was born to free human employees from mundane, time consuming tasks.


Received a seed funding round of $4.1M to help bring our Digital Workforce Platform for creating and deploying Digital Employees to the market.


Today SKAEL has over 75 team members supported by several Digital Employees that help us do purposeful work.
