Amorai, a San Francisco, CA-based health and wellbeing company that provides an AI relationship coaching app, raised a pre-seed funding round led by AI Fund, with Andrew Ng joining Amorai’s board.
Strategic angel investors such as Megan Jones Bell, Psy.D (Clinical Director of Mental Health, Google), Jim Lanzone (CEO, Yahoo), Eileen Burbidge (Passion Capital), André Heinz, Peter Rojas, Balance Pilot Capital (Charles Campbell Roberts) and Joe Zadeh (former Airbnb VP Product) also participated in the round.
Renate Nyborg, Amorai Founder & CEO, says: “Amorai was founded in response to the global rise of loneliness, and the steady decline in close relationships – from platonic to romantic. It often shocks people that this problem spikes amongst young people: more than four in five Gen Z’s say they feel lonely sometimes, or all of the time. Our first product is a relationship coach because relationship struggles are [a leading cause of anxiety, stress and suicide amongst young adults) With AI’s potential for real-world, societal benefits blossoming, starting this company with Andrew’s active support was a no-brainer.”
Amorai harnesses AI to enhance real-world relationships. The company's first product is an AI relationship coaching app targeting young adults from 18-30 years old and will launch exclusively on iOS, leveraging Apple’s native health features and privacy standards.
