While there is a boom in generative AI like OpenAI’s ChatGPT with Microsoft investing in it and Google coming up with a rival soon, and ElevenLabs securing $2M to imitate human voices, Supernormal, a transformative generative AI platform creates intelligent meeting notes built on OpenAI and state-of-the-art language models has got a new generative AI note-taking platform to talk about.
It eliminates the need to take meeting notes manually. Moreover, with the Stockholm and New York-based startup, workers can share ideas, build relationships, and make decisions without having to take notes and analyse them afterwards.
The generative AI note-taking platform has raised $10 million in seed funding led by Balderton Capital, a London VC that invests in early-stage, technology and internet startups in Europe, and also recently backed Levity and Latana. Also participating were previous investors EQT Ventures, Acequia Capital, and byFounders. This brings the total funding raised by the company to $12 million.
The funding will be used to further the mission of Supernormal in delivering end-to-end workflow solutions based on foundational meeting data and develop next-generation tools that deliver unparalleled insights and actionable outcomes from conversations across organisations. As a remote-first company, with headquarters in Stockholm and New York, Supernormal is on a mission to empower workers everywhere, supporting them to work faster, better and more efficiently.
Colin Treseler, co-founder and CEO of Supernormal, said: “We have just scratched the surface on an entirely new class of actionable meeting data and Supernormal is unlocking insights and better outcomes across entire organizations. We’re delighted by the reception so far to Supernormal and look forward to working closely with Balderton and our other investors to deliver next-generation solutions on such a pivotal source of information.”
Fabian Perez, co-founder at Supernormal, said: “Supernormal is exactly the type of tool that would have transformed my life working for remote-first companies such as GitHub. With more companies opting for hybrid and distributed models, real-time communication and transparency are essential, and Supernormal gives people the tools to document their meetings and share them with colleagues instantly.”
Colin Hanna, partner at Balderton, said: “At Balderton, we are hungry for a new paradigm of applications exposing the magic of large language models within simple but powerful user experiences. Supernormal is already delighting users at scale across organizations. To get here, Colin and Fabian have shown creativity and grit. We believe those qualities, combined with their product experience at companies like GitHub, Klarna and Meta, will help them build a category-defining company in AI-powered workplace productivity and cognitive computing. We look forward to being on the journey with them.”
Transcribes meetings with OpenAI
Supernormal was founded by former design lead at GitHub and Splice, Fabian Perez and former product manager at Meta and Klarna, Colin Treseler in 2022. The Stockholm- and New York-headquartered startup is building an entirely new class of foundational data through AI-powered meeting notes.
The platform integrates with Google Meet, and recently added Microsoft Teams and Zoom, and automatically creates AI-powered notes and transcripts after every meeting instantaneously. Already, it has delivered millions of dollars worth of productivity gains to businesses, enabling people to spend less time on note-taking and more time delivering value.
Using OpenAI, it instantly generates detailed meeting notes depending on the type of call, extracting key details like customer objectives, goals, key decisions and action items within two seconds. After the meeting, the platform continues to deliver productivity gains by automating routine action items like follow-up emails, scheduling, and making introductions.
Deployed by leading businesses
With its suite of tools, Supernormal is quickly becoming the AI platform of choice for organisations such as Netflix, Salesforce, Github, Wayfair and The Next Web.
Rachelle Young, Program Director at The Next Web, said: “Supernormal has completely transformed the way I approach meetings. It’s a total time saver and has added immense value to my work – and to the team members and customers that are part of my calls.”
Jason Laster, CEO at Replay.io, said: “Supernormal normalises remote work and removes meeting fomo. Within a day everyone at the company was sharing Supernormal notes.”
