Mostly AI raises an additional $5m Series A funding led by Earlybird

– AUSTRIA, Vienna –  Mostly AI, the disruptive data privacy startup that built a unique synthetic data platform that unlocks personal data for privacy-friendly AI and big data innovation has raised an additional $5 million in Series A funding led by Earlybird along with existing investors 42CAP and Push Ventures also participating in the round.

Their core technology fully anonymizes big data without destroying their value while making sure that organizations won’t put their customers’ privacy at risk.

“As a financial investor and a close partner to Mostly AI, we are strongly convinced that Mostly AI will fundamentally revolutionize the analysis and usage of large data sets,” said Christian Nagel, Partner at Earlybird. “Mostly AI unlocks big data assets while at the same time guaranteeing the highest levels of data protection. That helps customers securely train predictive models thereby unleashing the full potential of their data.”

Founded in 2017, Mostly AI’s revolutionary Synthetic Data Engine uses artificial intelligence and privacy rules to automatically generate fully anonymous data. This artificial data is based on a company’s existing customer data and keeps their entire information value. But in contrast to classic anonymization approaches the re-identification of customers becomes impossible resulting in as-good-as-real data that is not subject anymore to the rules of GDPR/CCPA.

“The additional funding will allow us to significantly accelerate our growth and expand our engineering and sales teams both in Europe and in the U.S.,” said CEO Michael Platzer. “We’re experiencing significant traction for our AI-powered synthetic data solution at numerous financial institutions, healthcare and technology companies worldwide and are on track to deliver a cloud-based version of it.”

Current customers include one of the U.S.’ Top 5 insurance companies, global telecom operator Telefónica and several financial institutions in Europe such as Erste Group Bank, one of the largest financial services providers in Central and Eastern Europe.

“Mostly AI’s synthetic data engine is unique in the market today,” explains Jeb Su, principal analyst at Atherton Research. “If Facebook has used Mostly AI’s solution, it would have accomplished its data anonymization project in days rather than 2 years with 20 full-time staff and at a cost of $11 million, and with a much higher quality dataset that scientists could actually use for their research.”

Mostly AI’s Synthetic Data Engine is orders of magnitude more accurate than mockup or dummy data enabling a range of use cases from data monetization, testing and development, user experience design, vendor validation, AI training, and much more, without putting customers’ privacy or a company’s reputation at risk of a data breach.
