Hello Readers,

Over a million Indians move to the US each year, but finding a job can be a tough task. Priyanka Botny found herself in such a situation. 

Unwilling to give up, she decided on becoming an immigrant entrepreneur and started Playonomics — an online experiential learning platform for employees to improve their emotional intelligence. 

Priyanka says often focusing on IT infrastructure takes away attention from employee wellbeing. "We help in bringing that intelligence to build emotional skills, along with digital transformation at organisations,” Priyanka explains. 

The startup focuses on decision-making and using human emotions to further digital transformation. 

Its SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) product collects human interaction data by monitoring the experiences of employees, and provides feedback about their emotional skills using human raw data with the help of AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) models.
