Beautiful.AI, a San Francisco, CA-based artificial intelligence-powered presentation tool to create visual documents, raised $5M in Series A funding.
Backers included First Round Capital and Shasta Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to support the testing, development and expansion of its AI-powered technology.
Led by Mitch Grasso, founder, Beautiful.AI develops Design AI technology, which uses heuristic techniques to apply the rules of good design in real time, automatically applies constraints to prevent users from violating these best practices, such as typing too much text on a slide.
The tool features more than 50 built-in “smart” templates to allow users to visualize their ideas instantly, all of which can be easily customized within minutes using intuitive controls and automated design features.
A searchable image library is also available with millions of custom icons and royalty-free images that are automatically placed and formatted for the user.
The tool is currently free to use for all users through June 2018.
