Artisan AI closes a $7.3 million seed round to build AI workforce for enterprises

Artisan AI, a startup building AI workers and software for large companies, has raised $7.3 million in a round led by Oliver Jung, an early investor in Airbnb, Rippled, Revolut and many other unicorns.

Other investors include Sequoia Scout, Y Combinator, Soma Capital, BOND Capital, Anu Hariharan, Paul Daversa, Fellow's Fund, Mento VC and more. Investors had strong convictions in Artisan AI, allowing them to raise at an unlimited discount of 20% SAFE – meaning the round will convert at a 20% discount to their Series A valuation.

The YC-backed San Francisco company is building Artisans, fully autonomous AI workers, and a unified platform to replace the entire SaaS stack, so humans and AI can work together seamlessly and business teams can stop context switching.

Starting with sales, Artisan replaces and automates the entire GTM SaaS stack

Craft AI launched their AI BDR, Ava, in February 2023. She automates 80% of the role of a BDR. She operates within the Artisan Sales platform, which replaces dozens of outbound sales tools into a single, consolidated platform. It's also the only sales software that automates personalized email writing with dynamic email playbooks that can mimic any style a human BDR would write in. Artisan AI has seen strong interest from large B2B SaaS companies ready to consolidate their complex, fragmented software stack.

Artisan's mission is to create an all-in-one platform to replace and consolidate the best SaaS products in the GTM space, where Artisans work alongside human teams to automate most of their work. Next in their pipeline are Liam, the Marketing Artisan, and James, the Customer Success Artisan.

Artisan is the only company creating AI workers and consolidating the SaaS stack. CEO Jaspar Carmichael-Jack says: “Our competitors are building solutions that come on top of existing software packages – that is not the way to go. Our vision is to become the go-to platform for GTM SaaS and digital labor. When you hire AI workers, you don't also want to pay for software tools for them to use. We're at war against context switching, bad UX, and manual workflows. And we are on a mission to make B2B SaaS sexy!”

Six months ago, Artisan was accepted into Y Combinator with a team of three. Since then, they have launched V2 of their platform, onboarded over 100 companies and have 13 employees working on their product.
