Artisan AI Closes $7.3M Seed Funding Round

Artisan AI, a San Francisco, CA-based startup building AI employees and software for enterprise companies, raised $7.3M in Seed funding.

The round was led by Oliver Jung. Other investors include Sequoia Scout, Y Combinator, Soma Capital, BOND Capital, Anu Hariharan, Paul Daverda, Fellow’s Fund, and more.

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

Led by Jaspar Carmichael-Jack (CEO), Dr. Rupert Dodkins (CTO), and Samantha Stallings (CPO), Artisan AI provides autonomous AI employees, and a unified platform to replace the entire SaaS stack, so that humans and AI can work together and enterprise teams can stop context switching.

The company launched V2 of their platform at the beginning of April. This release introduced Level 2 autonomy of AI agents, an improvement on Level 1, which came out in February 2023. Where Level 1 Ava required manual human review, Level 2 Ava operates on autopilot, independently crafting and sending emails in a variety of styles, without direct human input.

Since joining Y Combinator, Artisan has grown from 3 to 13 employees, onboarded over 100 companies.
