Today we are proud to announce that Hyperia has closed a Series Seed financing of $2.5M led by Access Venture Partners, with participation from several other additional investors. As part of this funding, Access Ventures' Frank Mendicino will be joining our board. We're also announcing several new job openings as we scale R&D efforts at the company.
We founded Hyperia two years ago based on the observation that communication between people is the life-blood of any businessーour calls, meetings, and video collaboration sessions are where decisions are made, deals are won/lost, and knowledge is transferred. Our belief is that by bringing AI into a company's communications, we can empower the individual worker with AI, augmenting a person's abilities and overall productivity.
Hyperia integrates with your existing VoIP,
web meeting, and video conferencing solutions, bringing programmable
real-time AI into your conversations. Our system includes dozens of "AI
skills" that do things like transcribe and summarize your calls and
meetings, track your commitments, augment your memory, improve your
ability to communicate, and so on. Even better, Hyperia is fully
programmable! We 've created a developer runtime that enables easy
construction of new AI skills for almost any scenario you can imagine.
Want to make your own AI Scrum-master? How about a sales coach? Maybe
real-time lookup for all the acronyms your co-workers and clients are
using on calls, or an automatic language translator? We've built dozens
of AI skills to enhance a person's ability to communicate, and can't
wait to see what you do with Hyperia!
We're excited to have the support of Access Venture Partners in this latest fundraising as we scale the company's efforts, deepen investment in our AI technology, and expand our hiring in the Rocky Mountain Region. In the coming months, we'll begin working with an increasing number of partners, further refining the platform and adding to our library of AI skills.
As CEO and co-founder of Hyperia I'm so proud of what the company has accomplished in two short years. Our team has created, from scratch, one of the world's most accurate speech recognition pipelines and a number of other innovative AI technologies that enable rapid development of AI skills enhancing a company's calls, meetings, and overall worker/team productivity. We'll be sharing more in coming months about other aspects of our product, platform, AI tech stack and skills runtimeーstay tuned!
If you want to help us fulfill this vision and be on the forefront of Human-centered AI, join our team.
