SAN FRANCISCO — Typeface, an AI application for enterprise content creation, has emerged from stealth to help businesses securely create exceptional, brand-personalized content faster and easier than ever before. The company launched with an oversubscribed $65 million round from Lightspeed Venture Partners, GV (Google Ventures), M12 (Microsoft’s Venture Fund), and Menlo Ventures. Typeface is led by former CTO of Adobe, Abhay Parasnis.
Generative AI platforms represent a major technological breakthrough that promises to create content at tremendous speed and scale. To successfully leverage its potential, enterprises must combine generative AI’s speed with a brand’s unique voice, audiences, and workflows to completely transform content creation while maintaining brand control.
“By adding brand affinity to generative AI, Typeface allows enterprises to harness their collective creative power for unique expression of their stories and imagination,” says Typeface CEO and Founder, Abhay Parasnis. “Now, any company can transform content into a value multiplier, connecting every department and empowering employees to achieve their creative and storytelling goals.”
“Typeface is at the forefront of a monumental shift in how businesses will create and collaborate,” said Ravi Mhatre, Partner at Lightspeed. “With a world-class team and category-defining vision, Typeface is the first company to address the significant need for a comprehensive platform that radically personalizes generative AI for the enterprise. By democratizing access to this technology, companies can supercharge iterative creation and meaningfully engage with customers unlike ever before.”
Typeface’s new product provides complete lifecycle content development with self-serve solutions to create with ease, speed, and brand authenticity across all departments, including marketing, advertising, customer support, sales, HR, and more.
