Angel AI Raises $4.75M Seed Funding

Angel AI, a Nashville, TN-based provider of a parent-designed AI platform that provides an age-appropriate internet experience for children aged 5 to 12 years old, raised $4.75M in Seed funding.

The round was led by Cortical Ventures with participation from Village Global and other angel investors.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its investments in hiring, product development, and marketing initiatives.

Led by Founder and CEO Tim Estes, Angel AI provides a platform that uses AI technology such as large language models, natural language processing (NLP), speech recognition and synthesis, and agent-based systems with memory, to generate age-appropriate answers to children’s questions, delivering safe content and entertainment. Additionally, it has the ability to learn, personalize, and understand the child over time. The AI supports children’s curiosity and encourages them to find answers by providing multi-modal content at their comprehension level, including video and audio, to enhance the learning experience.

Angel’s content is also free from distracting advertisements or predatory monetization tactics, which have become commonplace in children’s digital experiences–often to their detriment. it is also free of data collection for reselling and always will be. The platform will also include a parent insight portal, offering insights about children’s interests online and offline. In addition to the platform’s current services, Angel will continue to roll out new capabilities in the coming months with the ultimate goal of creating a multi-faceted ecosystem that will redefine how children experience the internet.
