“We have spent years building Billy Grace, testing our platform with a limited number of partners, and are now ready to scale. We benefit from companies’ curiosity about AI possibilities.” Mitch Voskuilen, CEO and founder of Billy Grace says, “Marketing teams that use smart automation have more time for work where people make a difference, such as creativity and human contact. I think we are only just discovering AI’s possibilities. In a few years, every marketing team will be using AI to make their marketing ‘smarter’.”
