Imran Chaudhri and Bethany Bongiorno, co-founders of the AI startup Humane, have received an additional $100 million to develop what they refer to as an “integrated device and cloud services platform” for artificial intelligence.
Its most recent round of funding, a Series C, drew a long list of famous investors, including OpenAI’s CEO and co-founder Sam Altman, Kindred Ventures (which led the round), SK Networks, Tiger Global, LG Technology Ventures, Microsoft, Volvo Cars Tech Fund, and Qualcomm Ventures.
Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, and other current and prior investors have contributed $230 million to Humane so far. The workforce has increased in line with this growth and presently employs 200 employees.
The Series C financing provided a chance to lure outstanding VCs and strategic partners who would like to participate in equity as the firm evolves, according to Chaudhri.
“At Humane, we’re creating a platform for devices and services that is unique; we’re expanding quickly and have been concentrating on innovation, research, and development,” he added.
