Greptile Raises $4.1M in Seed Funding


Greptile, a San Francisco, California-based company that allows engineers to use natural language to index and search large codebases, raised $4.1m in seed funding.

The round was led by Initialized Capital, with participation from angels including Rich Aberman (WePay) and JJ Fliegelman (WayUp), both former YC visiting partners. 

The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its development efforts.

Led by CEO Daksh Gupta, Greptile is an AI-powered codebase expert. The company has developed novel ways to index and search large codebases that mirror how experienced engineers do it: first by developing a general map/graph of how the codebase works, then following references – “command+clicking” –  to find the code that answers the question. Greptile offers this “codebase-optimized RAG” (Retrieval-Augmented Generation) as a chatbot that developers can use to chat with any repo, and also as an API so they can integrate this AI expert into their dev tooling. This API can support everything from reviewing merge requests, to diagnosing bugs from Sentry alerts, to updating internal documentation. 

The company’s the API, chatbot and integrations are used by nearly 400 software teams.
