Levity, a Berlin-based No-Code AI automation platform, has raised $8.3 million in seed funding, co-led by Balderton Capital and Chalfen Ventures.
The funds will allow the company to expand the team and accelerate product development.
No-Code AI automation platform
Founded by Gero Keil and Thilo Hüllmann, Levity‘s No-Code AI automation platform empowers companies to speed up processes, reduce costs, and free people from mundane, time-consuming tasks. The platform combines machine learning tools with a simple, easy-to-use AI Block builder and templates.
The company is on a mission to level the playing field for businesses of all sizes by making it easier for companies to process unstructured data that only AI can truly automate.
Levity combines natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision in a single platform to automate many processes, including signing up, creating an AI Block, and receiving the first predictions in as little as five minutes.
As a result, the company’s approach can be used on unstructured data types – images, texts, and documents. The company’s customers range from fashion and real estate to shipping, marketing, social media, scientific research, and more.
Instead of retrofitting tools, Levity integrates with a wide range of tools, such as Gmail, Outlook, Google Drive, Dropbox, Airtable, and many more, which enables customers to plug AI Blocks directly into their workflows.
Since this launch in August, Levity’s platform has completed more than 3.2 million predictions across its user base.
Gero Keil, co-founder, and CEO of Levity, says, “There are swathes of businesses being completely left out and underserved when it comes to AI and automation, as large firms and tech teams continue to build tools that are out of reach of everyday people. Businesses and their customers deserve the same opportunities to reap the benefits of AI and automation as their bigger rivals. With Levity, we’re committed to opening up such opportunities and leveling the playing field for companies of all sizes.”
James Wise, a partner at Balderton Capital, says, “There is an increasing divide between companies with the means to capitalize on AI and automation and those smaller businesses who lack the resources to do so. Levity is on a mission to close this divide. By making machine learning more accessible and affordable, businesses of all shapes and sizes can truly benefit from the power that automation brings.”
Mike Chalfen, the founder of Chalfen Ventures, says, “Gero and Thilo’s unique perspective, and their ability to look at AI through fresh eyes, has resulted in a product that promises true value and real, widespread impact for SMEs everywhere. Of course, the best products are those that manage to present advanced and complex tools simply, which is exactly what the Levity team has built.”
