Supernormal raises $10M to automatically transcribe and summarize meetings

Supernormal, a startup that provides an AI-powered tool to automatically transcribe and summarize meetings, has raised $10 million in a seed round of funding.

The round was led by Accel, with participation from GV (formerly Google Ventures) and FirstMark Capital. Supernormal co-founder and CEO Jigar Mehta told me that the money will be used to expand the team, with a focus on adding more machine learning experts, and to grow the company’s customer base.

Supernormal’s technology combines automatic speech recognition with intelligent algorithms that can identify key points and action items from a meeting. The company provides a web app that meeting participants can use to upload audio recordings of their meetings, which are then transcribed and summarized. Participants can also provide input on the summary to make sure it’s accurate.

Mehta said that the tool is designed to help busy professionals who don’t have time to transcribe and summarize their own meetings. “There are a lot of people who are really good at their jobs, but they don’t have the time to do everything,” he said. “We want to automate the tedious and time-consuming parts of their jobs so they can focus on the things that only they can do.”

The transcription and summarization is all done automatically, but Mehta said the team is working on adding more features to help users get more out of the app. One such feature is the ability to search through transcripts for specific keywords.

Supernormal is currently being used by companies in a variety of industries, including healthcare, finance, and law. Mehta said that the app is particularly well-suited for companies with a lot of regulatory compliance requirements, such as healthcare companies.

The company was founded in 2016 by Mehta and Shreyansh Daftry, who met while they were students at Stanford. Mehta said the idea for the company came out of his own frustrations with trying to keep up with the meeting transcriptions and summaries from his previous job in consulting.

Supernormal has a team of 10 people, and is based in San Francisco.

With Supernormal, there’s no need to take notes or transcribe meetings manually — the app does it all automatically.

Supernormal has raised $10 million in seed funding to develop an AI-powered app that automatically transcribes and summarizes meetings. The funding round was co-led by Index Ventures and slack, with participation from Notion and O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures.

Supernormal was founded in 2018 by Jake Furst, former president of Bill Clinton’s digital agency and co-founder of the startup incubator Science, and Adam Cheyer, co-founder of Siri and Viv. The company is based in San Francisco.

The app, which is currently in closed beta, uses AI to transcribe and summarize meetings in real-time. It also provides users with a searchable transcript and highlights of key points from the meeting. Supernormal plans to launch a premium version of the app later this year that will offer features such as meeting recording and live transcription.

“Supernormal is the fastest way to get more out of meetings,” said Furst in a statement. “Our goal is to make it easy for anyone to capture the knowledge, insights and actions from any meeting, regardless of its size or format. We’re thrilled to have the support of some of the best investors in the world as we continue to build the future of work.”
