Spoke.ai, a Berlin, Germany-based startup that offers an AI-powered tool suite, raised €2 million in pre-seed funding.
The round was led by byFounders, with participation from Possible Ventures and a syndicate of experienced operators.
The funds will be used to onboard the 500+ companies from the waiting list to the Beta version.
Max Brenssell, Spoke.ai Co-Founder, said: “Modern teams are working with a growing number of specialized SaaS tools, but are drowning in the noise created by conversations and content stretched across all these. Generative AI has the power to cut through this noise to create the context we’re all missing.”
