V7 Raises $33 Million in Series A  

by Kay Aloha Villamor in November 29th, 2022

V7, a London, UK-based data engine to build and improve AI for computer vision, announced that it raised $33 million in Series A financing.

The round was co-led by AI-focused Radical Ventures and Temasek, with participation from existing investors Air Street Capital, Amadeus Capital Partners, and Partech. 

The funding round also included participation from machine learning pioneers Francois Chollet (Keras creator), Oriol Vinyals (DeepMind), Jose Valim (Elixir creator), and Ashish Vaswani, who co-created Transformer models while at Google Brain.

This funding will allow V7’s further expansion into the US market, growing its team in its biggest market.

V7 automates the labeling process, allowing companies to solve data labeling tasks ten times more quickly. The company’s unique “programmatic labeling” workflows use AI models and minimal human steering to apply labels to data at scale. 

“The next generation of software won’t run on code, it will run on models fueled by training data. We let our clients easily turn human knowledge into AI models, improving the safety and accuracy of AI. This is incredibly powerful, and in the right hands, can literally save lives. If we want to build software that tackles unsolved frontiers in human health, or our climate, this is the only way”, said CEO of V7 Alberto Rizzoli

V7’s growth trajectory is unabated despite a macroeconomic downturn. In 2022, the business grew ARR by 3x, organic traffic to the V7 website increased by 100x, and the team's headcount increased by 5x to meet significant market demand for the product.
