Angel AI Raises $4.75 Million

Angel AI, a parent-designed platform that provides an age-appropriate internet experience for children aged 5 to 12 years old, has raised $4.75 million in seed funding from Cortical Ventures with significant participation from Village Global and several other angel investors.

Angel AI uses advanced artificial intelligence, such as large language models, natural language processing (NLP), speech recognition and synthesis, and agent-based systems with memory. This technology allows Angel to generate age-appropriate answers to children's questions, delivering compelling but safe content and entertainment. Additionally, Angel's platform 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 multimodal content at their comprehension level, including video and audio, to enhance the learning experience.

"Instead of fully disconnecting children from the internet, we're advocating for an innovative and more effective approach. By using the Angel platform, parents can carefully integrate technology, letting their children explore safely while building healthy online and offline habits and promoting digital fluency," said Tim Estes, CEO and founder of Angel AI, in a statement.

The new funding will accelerate Angel AI's investments in hiring, product development, and marketing initiatives. More than 100 parents are actively testing Angel's platform. Invitations to use the platform will be rolled out in phases this summer as a part of the company's plan to continue expanding parent and child engagement with the platform.
