Whispp closes investment

22 maart 2022

Libertatis Ergo Holding B.V., FARE Capital and TomTom co-founder Pieter Geelen invest €450k in Leiden based startup Whispp. Whispp also receives the Rabobank Innovation Loan of €150k.

Leiden based startup Whispp develops AI speech technology to empower millions of people who suffer from a voice disorder or stutter severely. One thing these people have in common is that they are able to whisper in a clear and relaxed way. Whispp is the only speech technology in the world that converts whispered speech into the person’s natural voice, wíth the intonation and emotion you intended, in real time.

The investment will be used for further development of the AI speech technology and for market introduction of the mobile and desktop application. With the mobile app phone and video calls can be made and for live conversations it works like a voice amplifier. The desktop application can be used in combination with your preferred video conferencing platform.
