Gluru has raised $2m in Seed funding from investors including Sussex Place Ventures, SAATCHiNVEST, GECAD, and Playfair Capital.

The startup, which is working on a AI-powered task platform, has raised $3.5m to date.

Speaking about the round’s closure, Tim Porter, founder and CEO of Gluru, said: “Working on the cutting edge of artificial intelligence over the last two years, we have been honing this sophisticated technology to deliver a platform that can empower productivity like never before.”

“Our smart task manager is only the beginning; our vision is to power consumers’ and businesses’ productivity platforms, services, and devices with AI, so users can focus on what really matters, saving time and money. Having strategic funding partners like Sussex Place Ventures and SAATCHiNVEST has been paramount to making that a reality,” he added.

Gluru is planning to integrate with Slack chatbots, Google Drive, Microsoft Outlook and Office and Amazon Alexa and is looking to roll-out subscription options for entreprises later this year.

“We love groundbreaking enterprise AI that provides practical applications right now, as Gluru is doing – not some distant R&D pipe dream. Tim and the Gluru team have some of the best AI talent in the world, disrupting the productivity space today, and we’re excited about where they can take this,” concluded Alex Dunsdon, equity partner at SAATCHiNVEST.
