Combinator-backed AI startup Crux bags $2.6mn in funding 

AI startup Crux, backed by Y Combinator, has secured $2.6 million in a seed funding round. The funding was led by Emergent Ventures, with participation from Y Combinator and Neon Fund. Early backers such as First Cheque and other investors also participated in the round.

Crux is backed by industry veterans in product & technology like Tej Redkar (CPTO – SumoLogic), Karthik Ramamoorthy (SVP, Products and GM – Zuora), Aayush Phumbra (cofounder – Chegg), Krishna Mehra (Director of Engineering – Meta) among others. 

Established in 2022 by Himank Jain, Atharva Padhye, and Prabhat Singh, the startup helps B2B SaaS teams in rapidly developing embedded AI copilots. It develops AI models capable of answering questions about business data using plain language, similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

“This Copilot will be fully aware of your business context, preferences, KPIs, and macro-trends and will take you from Intent to Action in seconds,” the company said. 

Crux has pivoted nearly 15 times before arriving at the platform’s current form, it said in a blog post.
