Umair Akeel is the CTO of allGood Technology and an angel investor with Twilio Angels. He was a distinguished engineer at Twilio, where he brought Twilio AI for Voice to GA. Before that, he served as CTO in residence and an operating partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, focusing on machine learning, autonomous vehicles, and developer tools. His career also includes roles as Eloqua’s chief architect through its IPO and Oracle acquisition and an early software engineer at Trigo, acquired by IBM. This diverse background makes Umair a valuable mentor and advisor, skilled at building and scaling products, teams, and organizations.
For the past seven years, Umair has loved bringing his energy and, hopefully, a few hard questions to his roles as an advisor and board member at CDL companies. While he also participates as an investor, it’s the hands-on mentoring to build something massive that truly fuels his passion
