Chefling, Inc., a Sunnyvale, CA-based solution for the smart kitchen, secured $1m in pre-series A funding.
XVVC made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds to drive product development, expand its workforce, curate tailored recipes with a newly on boarded culinary-trained expert, and expand visibility through marketing efforts.
Led by Amar Krishna, co-founder and CEO, Chefling provides users with a smart kitchen app that incorporates inventory organization, recipe suggestion, shopping list management, and voice assistant integration into a single platform to simplify the cooking experience. The company currently holds a temporary patent for its Consumable Goods Inventory Management System – a system and method that manages the inventory of pantries and refrigerators via a mobile application – and has filed for complete patent approval from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The app, which integrates with voice assistant devices like Amazon Echo and Google Home, has a user base of more than 100,000.
