At OthersideAI, we are driven by a single vision: empower the world to spend less time on email, and more time on the things that matter most.

Today, we are excited to announce our $2.6 million seed round led by Madrona Venture Group, with participation from Active CapitalHustle FundChapter One, and others.

This funding not only establishes OthersideAI as a leader in building the future of AI-driven communication, but also enables us to support thousands of users and continue expanding our team.

Our users have consistently used one word to describe Otherside: magic. The product is exceedingly simple. We take bulleted shorthand from our users and turn it into thoughtful, comprehensive email responses that reflect their individual style. The response we have had from early adopters has been overwhelming and we are looking forward to rolling out OthersideAI more broadly in the coming months. (Note: if you haven’t yet signed up on our waitlist for early access, you can do so here.)

The amount of time and money our society squanders on communication platforms like email is enormous. The average professional spends 28 percent of the workweek managing email, and companies lose thousands of dollars per employee each year as a direct result of ineffective communication. We are on a mission to change this. We aim to enable people to express their thoughts and ideas more effectively, and if we can even cut these numbers in half, we will see drastic increases in productivity.

Although we are just getting started, our progress thus far has only been possible due to our incredible support system. From our families and friends to our global network of supporters and our investors, you are the communities that continue powering us forward. We are humbled by your overwhelming interest and unfaltering belief in our vision. We are so very grateful to everyone who has helped to make our dream a reality.

Today we take a moment to reflect on all we have accomplished in just a few short months, and tomorrow we’re back to building. We have big plans to transform communication in the coming years, and we hope you will join us for the exciting journey ahead.

Here’s to the future!
