Lily AI helps you think like your customer.

We believe shopping should meet people where they are, and help them be who they want to be. We give a voice to every individual, empowering people to be unique and express themselves freely.

Our Story

Lily AI was founded in 2015 to build a shopping experience that would be able to understand the emotional context of the shopper in a way that had never happened in online commerce before.

Our co-founders Purva Gupta and Sowmiya Narayanan have extended this concept over the years into an enterprise-grade, AI-powered platform that accurately connects a brand’s shoppers with the relevant products they’re looking to buy at scale. We’re a team committed to creating the shopping experience of tomorrow, and believe that with best-in-class AI and by honoring the human in all of us, we will change the future of commerce.
