Artificial Intelligence (AI) has swiftly embedded itself into the modern workplace, revolutionizing how tasks are accomplished and businesses operate. Now, in a stride towards reshaping the landscape of workplace productivity, Read AI, a trailblazer in AI-driven meeting summaries, has just closed a remarkable $21 million Series A financing round.


What Is This Funding All About?

  • Spearheaded by Goodwater Capital and bolstered by the continued support of existing investor Madrona Venture Group, this investment infusion marks a pivotal moment for the company's quest to pioneer the future of work, where every professional interaction is empowered by AI.

  • The driving force behind Read AI's vision lies in its commitment to harnessing the power of connected intelligence.

  • Today, alongside the announcement of the funding boost, Read AI unveils a groundbreaking expansion into email and messaging platforms, including Gmail, Outlook, Teams and Slack.

  • This strategic move propels Read AI's intelligent agents into the digital communication ecosystem, fostering seamless integration between meetings, emails and messages.

  • The hallmark of Read AI's innovation lies in its connected intelligent agents, which have witnessed a meteoric rise in adoption over the past year.

  • With a staggering 12x surge in monthly active users and a 15x increase in recorded meetings across more than 40 countries, Read AI's AI-powered summarizers for meetings have undeniably struck a chord with professionals worldwide.


How This Funding Will Be A Game-changer?

  • David Shim, co-founder and CEO of Read AI, articulated the essence of their mission, stating, “Read is about getting to the heart of work — creating value, not sorting emails, expanding threads, and sitting in meetings.”

  • David further continued, “[It] brings together your meetings, emails, and messages and transforms them into collaborative partners, so that they talk to each other, share information, offer updates, find answers, and organize tasks through connected intelligence.”

  • Shim emphasizes that early user feedback indicates Read AI is consistently liberating one day per week for knowledge workers, enabling them to refocus on core responsibilities.

  • Moreover, Read AI is not only revolutionizing productivity but also prioritizing data privacy and security. Shim reassures users that personal data protection is a cornerstone of their platform, with regular SOC 2 Type 2 audits and end-to-end encryption on all measured data.

  • Users retain full control over data retention policies, ensuring businesses and individuals have complete sovereignty over their measured data.

As the landscape of Generative Artificial Intelligence (Gen AI) rapidly evolves, Read AI stands out with its multimodal approach to meeting summaries, incorporating audio, video and participant reactions into its models. However, distinctive methodology, coupled with the company's emphasis on proprietary models, positions Read AI for sustained competitiveness in the market.
With the fresh infusion of capital, Read AI sets its sights on expanding its team twofold in the coming two quarters while continuing to invest in connected intelligence by introducing new platforms and features. As the company advances towards its vision of crafting an "AI autopilot" for knowledge workers, it remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering tangible and ongoing returns on investment to its burgeoning user base.
Do you think Read AI’s trajectory represents more than just a technological innovation? Do you think it weaves together the fabric of modern workplace dynamics through the power of connected intelligence?
