Who We Are?

About us

Beiing Human is the dream child of its incredible thought leadership – Luke Nelson and Rishi Srivastava. There is a story of inspiration, dedication, and a will to revolutionize the world.

Rishi spent a decade working with big and small organizations, observing, learning, and executing functions to enhance performance – his innovative mind always searching for ways to optimize operations.

It was a momentous occasion, working on a trading floor, when a nerve-racking experience gave birth to the idea of creating an alternative to manual input – especially when it comes to handling complex accounting and data entry procedures.

However, it was five years before this concept could come to fruition when Rishi met Luke during a fateful game of poker.
Luke, a member of CFMA (Construction Financial Management Association), grew up on a farm in Fort Dodge, Iowa, where picking up a solid work ethic was inevitable.

Due to his uncanny instincts and genuine passion for his work, he quickly made his way up the ladder to become the CFO of some major construction companies across the US. Luke helped high-growth organizations achieve their market expansion goals. He also worked with several organizations experiencing financial distress to bring about a turnaround and thrive.

Upon meeting, Rishi and Luke pooled their decades of experience in their respective fields. They saw a gap in the market for advanced quality software, to take away the burden of handling complex transactions, receipts, invoices, and payment processes – sapping organizations’ time and resources.

Together, they created an organization that builds software to “let humans be humans” and focus on value generation by having access to error-free information.

In the era of technology, it is crucial to embrace digital transformation. Organizations hoping to stay relevant and succeed need a competitive edge.

By streamlining processes and providing timely, actionable data – digital transformation is the answer to achieving sustainable revenue growth, allowing organizations to compete in today’s cutthroat business environment.
