This funding effort was led by Walden Catalyst Ventures and Bessemer Venture Partners, and saw active participation from Secret Chord Ventures, Ascend Ventures, Fusion VC, and Flying Fish Partners.

An impressive roster of over 70 angel investors and advisors, including notable figures like Udi Mokady and Professor Larry Diamond, further contributed to the round.

Pioneering AI Cybersecurity Solutions

Led by CEO Michael Matias, the startup focuses on enabling organizations to swiftly identify and eliminate deepfakes and synthetic media.

The collaboration with Kaltura focuses on verifying and authenticating sensitive footage and testimonials related to the October 7 terrorist attack on Israel by Hamas.

CEO’s Vision for Future Growth

Michael Matias expressed enthusiasm about the capital infusion and ongoing partnerships with key investors.

The funds raised will be crucial in accelerating Clarity’s research and development efforts, as well as driving market expansion.
