accessiBe Raises $28M in Series A Funding


accessiBe, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based web accessibility company, completed its Series A round of funding with a total commitment of $28m.

In May 2020, accessiBe announced $12m in funding from K1 Investment Management, which now reinvested.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its US presence, and grow its R&D department.

Led by Shir Ekerling, CEO, accessiBe provides an AI-powered web accessibility solution that automates web accessibility. The company’s proprietary technology scans and modifies websites’ code and behavior in real time, to be accessible for people with disabilities and compliant with the ADA and WCAG 2.1. accessiBe’s founding team has deep domain expertise in the field of website creation and digital marketing and created the technology in close partnership with users suffering from visual impairment, epilepsy, motor impairments and cognitive dysfunctions.

accessiBe employs individuals with disabilities to test its solution and advise on further improvements, and over the next few months, the company plans to increase the number of people with disabilities on the payroll for its testing and advisory focus groups.
