Voicera, a Menlo Park, CA-based provider of a voice collaboration artificial intelligence (AI) system for meetings, closed its Series A round of financing, which, combined with its seed round, brings total funds raised to $20m.
The Series A was led by e.ventures with participation from Battery Ventures, Cisco Investments, GGV Capital, Greycroft, GV (formerly Google Ventures), Microsoft Ventures, Salesforce Ventures and Workday Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds for the continued rollout of its system.
Led by CEO Omar Tawakol, Voicera created Eva as an in-meeting AI assistant. Eva joins meetings and conference calls and, through a combination of voice recognition, natural language processing and machine learning, provides the attendees with a meeting recording, full transcription and meeting highlights.
These highlights and notes can be edited and shared through most of the leading collaboration systems like Slack and Salesforce, as well as via email.
Voicera’s integrations enable Eva to operate in any meeting environment such as BlueJeans, Zoom, UberConference and Skype.
It is also capable of joining Cisco WebEx.
