Respell Raises $4.75M in Seed Funding


Respell, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of a no-code AI-first platform, raised $4.75M in Seed funding.

The round was led by Craft Ventures with participation from Abstract Ventures, Zapier, Oliver Cameron, Scott Belsky, Arash Ferdowsi, Mathilde Collin, Amjad Masad, Nick Candito, Roger Jie Luo and others.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.

Led by CEO and Founder Matt Rastovac, Respell Respell allows users to automate digital work by leveraging all LLM models from OpenAI, Anthropic, Stability AI, and proprietary custom-built agents. The solution combines an AI-first workflow builder and an agent-based chat experience that learns about an organization’s processes over time to suggest and create new automations. Like ChatGPT, users can prompt in plain English, but Elle, the company’s agent-powered workflow automation platform, adds the ability to create reusable workflows that can perform complex tasks and integrate into an organization’s systems. Respell is cross-functional, enabling sales teams to automate lead management and enrichment, data teams to conduct rapid analysis on large data sets, and operations teams to centralize data from across the organization into one centralized intelligence hub.

In a few months since launch, Respell has amassed nearly 10k users, including several enterprise clients, and powered over 250,000 automations.
