Ex-Apple’s Engineer startup, Humane, raised $100M led by Tiger Global


Today, Humane, Inc. revealed that its Series B round of financing brought in $100 million. Tiger Global Management served as the round’s lead investor, and additional investors included SoftBank Group, BOND, Forerunner Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures LLC, and others. With the proceeds from this round, Humane will be able to scale its processes and carry out and further its aim to bring about the next transition between people and technology.

Imran Chaudhri and Bethany Bongiorno, co-founders of Humane, declared, “Humane is a space where people can develop through a genuine partnership of design and engineering.” “We are an experienced firm that develops goods for people, designing technology that prioritizes people above all else—a more personalized science that goes beyond what we now know. All of us are looking for something novel, something that transcends the information era we have been experiencing. At Humane, we are developing the technology and the infrastructure for the intelligence age. We are dedicated to creating a unique kind of business that is built on our core principles of fun, honesty, and trust. With the help of our partners, we’ll keep growing the team by adding people who are as passionate about building as we are about reinventing how we engage with computing.

The quality of the people at Humane is excellent, according to Chase Coleman, Partner at Tiger Global. “These are individuals who have created and delivered revolutionary goods to billions of users all around the world. What they are creating is revolutionary and can set a new benchmark for computing.”

Sam Altman, Lachy Groom, Kindred Ventures, Marc Benioff’s TIME Ventures, Valia Ventures, NEXT VENTRES, Plexo Capital, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati are some of the other financiers who took part in this round. 

The company is presently advertising for roughly 50 employment positions, including hardware engineers, designers, security specialists, and engineers with competence in camera and computer vision. (One indication of the intended use of all that funds.) Another element that attracted investors was the company’s strong workforce of roughly 60 employees.

The quality of the people at Humane is amazing, according to Chase Coleman, a partner at Tiger Global. These are individuals who have created and delivered revolutionary products to billions of users worldwide. What they are creating is innovative and has the potential to set a new standard for computing.
