Jargon Inc., a Seattle, WA-based conversation platform for voice applications, raised $1.8m in pre-seed financing.
The round was led by Ubiquity Ventures and Crosslink Capital, with participation from Amazon’s Alexa Fund, iRobot and others. In conjunction with the funding, Sunil Nagaraj of Ubiquity Ventures joined Jargon’s board.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to build its platform.
Led by Founder and CEO Milkana Brace, Jargon is developing a conversation platform, which enables voice applications to brands and application developers intelligently manage and personalize how they respond to their users.
The company’s SDK and cloud-based tools enable voice applications on services like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant to structure, manage, and optimize their content.
Founded in December 2017, it graduated from the Alexa Accelerator, powered by TechStars, in October 2018.
