German startup AskUI raised €4.3 million in seed funding led by Eurazeo, with participation from existing investors 468 Capital, LEA Partners, APX, and Seedcamp as well as existing angels Carsten Thoma and Christian Stiebner.
With a mission to redefine process automation, AskUI is introducing a new era of automated digital solutions that are not just intuitive and visually appealing but also robust, adaptable, and user-friendly, according to the startup. By leveraging the power of words to automate any process, they intend to create a digital world where automation is for everyone, everywhere.
The fresh capital will be used to advance their product development, building upon the existing functionalities that AskUI offers. They will also release their first prompt-to-automation model, an approach that will enable users to control and automate processes just by using words. Finally, the startup is planning to expand its market globally and grow the AskUI team.
Nils Seele, Partner at LEA Partners, said: “The significant amount of manual work needed to set up today’s automation workflows shows that current solutions don’t live up to what they have promised. The team of AskUI has built a remarkable technology that ushers in the next era of process automation. We’re excited to deepen our commitment to askui and welcome exceptional new investors.”
Nicolas Debock, Managing Director at Eurazeo, added: “We believe that the automation of white-collar jobs is at an inflection point under the emergence of new visual AI capabilities. AskUI’s unique visual AI tech stack represents a cornerstone solution used for a horizontal approach with multiple automation processes and use cases. This addresses a more multidisciplinary perspective to automation processes, enabled through AskUI’s no-code offering, including business users and developers alike. We are very much looking forward to partnering up with Jonas and Dominik on their journey ahead.”
Founded in 2021, AskUI wants to merge the power and flexibility of advanced AI models with the beauty of Large Language Models and user-friendly experiences of a combined no-code and code approach.
