Uizard, a Copenhagen, Denmark-based company that is using “machine intelligence” to turn app sketches into prototypes, raised $2.8m in seed funding.
The round was led by byFounders with participation from US-based av8 Ventures, LDV Capital, New York Venture Partners, entrepreneur Scott Kurnit, and angel investors Julia Qiu, Lars Houbak, and Alex Spiro.
The company intends to use the funds to bring its product to market.
Founded in 2017 by Tony Beltramelli, Henrik Haugbølle, Ioannis Sintos, and Florian van Schreven, Uizard leverages “machine intelligence” to turn app sketches into prototypes. The technology allows anyone to upload a picture of a sketched app to Uizard, and a functional prototype and downloadable code is generated automatically in less than a minute.
Having launched a private beta in September 2018, the company is already serving teams from all over the world to speed up their product development cycles.
In addition to the funding, Uizard added Rizwan Khan, formerly sales executive and first international business hire at InVision, to Chief Commercial Officer role.
