Vigen Nazarian, originally from Iran, now lives in Canada — where his name is frequently mispronounced.
This inspired him to develop technology to help people learn to say difficult-to-pronounce names.
The company he founded is ANTVibes. An ANT, or “audible name tag,” is a recording of you saying your own name. You can then embed that file into emails, websites, electronic resumes, social media profiles, digital documents, and so forth.
