GPTZero Raises $10M Series A

GPTZero, a NYC-based platform for AI-generated content detection and responsible AI adoption, raised $10m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Footwork VC with participation from Reach Capital, Uncork, Neo, Alt Capital, and the former CEOs of Reuters and the NYT.

The company intends to use the funds to redefine the interaction between humans and AI, enabling individuals, not AI companies, to measure and define the application of artificial intelligence on their own terms.

Led by CEO Edward Tian, GPTZero is advancing a roadmap that includes launching and developing:

  • Hallucination detection: A core technology for ensuring the integrity of AI-generated content
  • AI Sources: Identify the training data behind LLM outputs to judge how trustworthy they are and avoid reproducing copyrighted text
  • GPTZero Docs: A new editor platform with an embedded AI that records and cites its AI usage. It includes education-specific functionality around limiting and watermarking AI outputs.
