About Dennis

Dennis Mortensen is the CEO and co-founder of x.ai.

Dennis is an expert in leveraging data to solve enterprise use cases and a serial entrepreneur who’s successfully exited several companies on that theme.

His long-term vision of killing the inbox led to the formation of x.ai and the creation of Amy + Andrew, artificially intelligent assistants who schedule meetings. He speaks frequently to anyone who’ll listen, from the crowds of Web Summit to his building’s doorman, about an optimistic future for AI, productivity, and the future of work.

Dennis was also an accredited Associate Analytics Instructor at the University of British Columbia and the author of Data Driven Insights, on collecting and analyzing digital data.

Originally from Denmark (and keeping his accent), Dennis is now a New Yorker for life.
