The funding also saw participation from RTP Global, P9, Sierra, Andrew Ng's AI Fund, and the CEOs of Squarespace and Moonbug Media.

Originally conceived as a popular browser extension, Podcastle has evolved into a comprehensive suite of AI tools designed to simplify audio and video creation. The platform empowers creators and teams to seamlessly produce, edit, and publish audio and video content in a single, streamlined platform. With the increasing demand for long-form content in various domains such as marketing, internal communications, education, and media, Podcastle positions itself as the go-to collaborative workflow product for solo creators and businesses alike.
The Series A funding will enable Podcastle to accelerate the development of essential AI tools that simplify the creative workflow for individuals and teams. It will also support the expansion of the platform to make multimedia storytelling more accessible and scalable. The investment reflects confidence in Podcastle's vision of a world where world-class multimedia content creation is within reach for everyone.
Arto Yeritsyan, Founder and CEO of Podcastle, expressed enthusiasm about the funding, stating, "Our Series A funding round will enable our team to supercharge the development of essential AI tools that radically simplify the creative workflow for individuals and teams, as well as expanding our offering to make multimedia storytelling easier and more scalable."
Podcastle serves as a comprehensive audio and video production and distribution platform, catering to a diverse community of podcasters, solopreneurs, marketers, educators, and content creators. Since its Seed funding round in 2021, the platform has witnessed significant growth, with its user base surging from 150,000 to over one million creators.
The latest funding round will enable Podcastle to continue developing AI products that simplify content creation and focus on facilitating real-time collaboration for teams and businesses across their entire development, production, and distribution workflows.
