IPRally Technologies, a Helsinki, Finland-based, a provider of AI-powered patent search and classification, announced that it secured €10 million in a Series A round of funding.
The round was led by Endeit Capital, with participation from existing investors Join Capital, Spintop Ventures, and Icebreaker.vc.
The funds will be used to accelerate its expansion and develop its product toward a complete one-stop shop for AI-driven patent research and competitive intelligence.
“Five years ago, we set out to take the pain points away from patent search and classification and to make it much faster and more accurate,” says Sakari Arvela, CEO and Co-founder at IPRally.
“We are also coupling our graph technology with generative AI technologies to overcome issues associated with generative transformers, such as GPT-4, to enable unparalleled performance and user experience in various conventionally tedious IP tasks,” adds Arvela.
IPRally’s proprietary Graph Neural Network technology allows technical and semantic understanding of the global patent data, making searches less dependent on exact keywords and technical expertise.
The platform is utilized by technology corporations, patent law firms, academic institutions, and public patent offices.
