accessiBe, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based provider of AI-powered web accessibility solutions, raised $12m in funding.
The round was led by K1 Investment Management.
The company intends to use the funds to build on its growth trajectory, scale operations in North America, and support its tens of thousands of customers and partners.
Founded in early 2018 and led by Shir Ekerling, CEO, accessiBe automates the process by which companies and website owners make their content accessible to users with visual, hearing and motor impairments, as well as other functional disabilities. Its AI-based solution scans websites and automatically provides key modifications to transmit data and accessible content to end-users in a manner compliant with international and US disability standards, including Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the Americans with Disabilities Act. This solves the accessibility needs of thousands of small and medium-sized businesses as well as enterprises, mostly through partnerships with companies like RealPage, BigCommerce, Volusion, WebFX, Digital Ocean and thousands of web and digital agencies who need to provide accessible websites for their clients.
