Aleia, a Paris, France-based provider of an AI SaaS platform, raised €8M in Seed funding.
The round – raised in 2021 – included €2 million in equity and €6 million non-dilutive.
Backers included Charles Beigbeder, Raphaël Auphan, Ludovic Bodin, AI Fund from Germany and Bpifrance.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Founded in 2020 by Antoine Couret and François Lainée, Aleia provides an AI SaaS based platform that facilitates the collaborative work of Data Scientists, Data Engineers and AIOps and makes it possible to share data while allowing everyone to keep control over it, from R&D to production. This allows organizations, both private and public, to build datasets of sufficient size to train high-quality algorithms and make the most of them in their business applications.
The company has already integrated a dozen AI partners on its platform, such as Cosmian, XXII, Qwam, LeVoiceLab, ITrust, Cliris, Linkurious, AG – and more partners are joining them across Europe.
Aleia has a team of 30 full-time employees and is recruiting 60 more this year both in Paris, France, and remotely across Europe.
