We are excited and proud to announce that we have closed our first funding round with participation from Techstars, m]x[v Capital, and DormRoomFund, TechOne.

We are passionate about unleashing the maximum potential in everyone by powering your digital interactions using our suite of artificial intelligence algorithms.

Since mid-2020, after the pandemic crisis, our story began by optimizing education and training programs. We saw the direct impact we could have on people’s lives when we tailored personal interactions for individuals and teams. We decided to unleash the power of effective communication in everyone’s lives, not just during learning.

We believe in our goal, and it is incredible to see other people see inside us and believe in us. We are now one step closer to achieving our ambitious goal, thanks to Techstars, m]x[v Capital, and DormRoomFund, TechOne.

Tricia Martinez, managing director of Techstars industries of the Future, said:

The way we do business and manage our teams is rapidly changing. Hybrid work environments, automation, and employee well-being are all new paradigms gaining the utmost importance for employers. Spiky.ai is at the forefront of this change enabling a business to manage teams more efficiently from anywhere and providing an emotional pulse on a company's most invaluable assets, their talent. The Spiky AI team is not only a group of impressive PhDs in AI and education, but more importantly, they are highly intuitive and savvy Founders that have identified a large pain point across industry and are using their expertise to solve it."

Mark Ghermezian, founder and managing partner of m]x[v Capital, said:

“With the new reality of hybrid/remote workplaces, employee churn is at an all-time high. With Spiky.ai, we see the potential to gauge emotional metrics and better interact with employees, increasing productivity/loyalty and decreasing churn."

Impact

People are what make organizations successful. Through our platform, we aim to unlock the best potential of everyone. We analyze your online meetings and education programs to make them more efficient and engaged. We are directing our efforts to areas where we can add value to members, leaders, and executives for their needs. Our end goal is to empower people and produce beneficial societal impacts. Working with those who appreciate the challenges and relevance of local context in building community welfare is the best way to achieve this.

“Employees can now talk to other companies, interview, and leave a company within two weeks without having to switch their homes, kids’ schools, or friends. Gone are the days when a company could engage with its employees only once per year.

We are trying to get companies to work smarter and build cultures to be more human-centric. “

2021 in Review

The world started to change dramatically in 2020, and the foundations began to settle in 2021. Most companies decided to work remotely or hybrid. It is now easy to change your job. All you need to change is the credentials on your computer. Everything thought to be impossible is currently happening.
