Another week, another nine-figure round for a San Francisco-based AI startup.
Writer’s platform is designed to help businesses use large language models to generate writing and content that can be used across different departments, such as operations, product, sales, human resources, marketing and more.
“Our foundation models are best-in-class, and they’re auditable, inspectable, and hostable — but it’s not just about the models,” co-founder and CEO May Habib said in a release. “Any CIO who’s tried to build an internal generative AI application will tell you that the last mile of quality is the hardest. And we help them nail that, at scale, dozens and dozens of times as they build AI applications and assistants that enable their entire organization.”
Writer had previously raised a $5 million seed funding in 2020 and a $21 million Series A round in 2021, according to the company.
Big money in SF
Writer becomes just the most recent San Francisco AI startup to raise big money.
Adept AI’s $350 million Series B in March, gave the San Francisco-based startup a post-money valuation of at least $1 billion. The startup is developing AI models that do more than respond to text commands — like chatbots do — but actually turn that command into actions.
There have been other smaller rounds, and there is undoubtedly more to come.
