Gen AI firm Nexusflow clinches $10.6m in seed funding round


Nexusflow, a pioneering force in the Generative AI sector, has made headlines today by announcing a $10.6m seed round investment.

The funding endeavour, spearheaded by Point72 Ventures, also witnessed considerable contributions from Fusion Fund and several renowned AI experts from the heart of Silicon Valley.

Diving deeper into what Nexusflow does, this dynamic company was conceived by AI maestros, Professor Jiantao Jiao and Professor Kurt Keutzer from the Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) Lab.

They collaborated with industry AI trailblazer, Jian Zhang, who boasts a stellar background including a Ph.D. from the Stanford AI Lab and a tenure as the Machine Learning Director at SambaNova Systems – a noteworthy AI startup valued at over $5bn. Their combined experience spans years of intensive research and adept productization in the sphere of AI algorithms and systems.

What truly sets Nexusflow apart is its revolutionary approach. The firm empowers enterprises with cutting-edge AI models, all while safeguarding their sensitive data. In terms of efficacy, when benchmarked against widely-used security applications, Nexusflow consistently clocks an impressive accuracy rate of 95%. To put this in perspective, even OpenAI’s acclaimed GPT-4 model delivers an accuracy of 64%.

Nexusflow CEO Jiantao Jiao highlighted the company’s unique selling points, stating, “Nexusflow specialises in curating high-quality data for data-centric AI. We also leverage our expertise in generative AI systems to ensure efficient implementation and scalability, resulting in significantly lower costs compared to OpenAI’s GPT-4.”

Underpinning their top-tier 95% accuracy is the newly unveiled NexusRaven model. This potent tool allows businesses to merge fragmented data from an array of knowledge sources and software utilities, facilitating rapid decision-making and honing security processes.

Sri Chandrasekar, Managing Partner at Point72 Ventures, shared his optimism for Nexusflow, expressing, “Jiantao and the team at Nexusflow bring what we think is a unique skillset to address the challenges cybersecurity enterprises are facing today. We believe they represent the next frontier of generative AI research and are thrilled to support them on their journey.”

Echoing these sentiments, Lu Zhang, Founder & Managing Partner at Fusion Fund, added, “Nexusflow not only pioneers Generative AI research but also possesses deep expertise in delivering generative AI solutions to enterprises. We are thrilled to support their transformative impact on cybersecurity.”
