D-ID, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based developer of a deep learning solution to protect identities from face recognition technologies, completed a $4m seed funding.
The round was led by Pitango Venture Capital with participation from Y Combinator, Foundation Capital, Fenox Venture Capital, Maverick Ventures, and two angel investors. In conjunction with the funding, Rami Kalish, Managing General Partner and Co-Founder at Pitango Venture Capital, is joining D-ID’s Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to strengthen tech development.
Founded in 2017 by CEO Gil Perry, COO Sella Blondheim and CTO Eliran Kuta, D-ID has developed technology that produces photos and videos which are unrecognizable to face recognition algorithms, while keeping them similar to the human eye, which enables companies, security agencies, and governments to comply with regulations and protect biometric databases.
D-ID is a Y Combinator S17 alumni startup.
