Nagish raises $16 million to make communication accessible

Nagish is thrilled to announce that we have successfully raised $16 million in funding to revolutionize communication for over a billion people with hearing loss. 

This incredible trust and support, including an $11 million Series A led by Canaan Partners and an additional $5 million in seed funding, will empower us to continue our work towards breaking down barriers, addressing the daily challenges faced by millions of deaf or hard-of-hearing individuals, and making Nagish universally available. 

About Nagish

Nagish has a broader purpose that goes beyond its functionalities. "Nagish is not just another AI app. It’s a catalyst for empowerment, independence, and social inclusion, inspiring a new era of communication for millions of individuals with hearing loss," said Laura Chau, partner at Canaan.

This profound impact of AI on society highlights our commitment to making inclusivity and accessibility a reality for millions.

Our flagship product, The Nagish Mobile App, is an AI-powered speech-to-text and text-to-speech phone app. This innovative tool provides highly accurate and instant captioning over phone calls and in-person conversations.

Nagish is designed to replace native phone apps and includes voice modulation features, making it a comprehensive communication tool for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. By empowering people with hearing loss to follow conversations in real time, Nagish enhances personal interactions and improves accessibility while keeping calls private and secure.

Nagish users continue to experience the transformative power of independent communication without interpreters, stenographers, or assistants. At the same time, our products are used by people at major enterprises, including Comcast NBCUniversal, Pfizer, and Amazon, demonstrating our technology's broad impact on personal and business communication.

Earlier in 2024, Nagish was certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide telecommunication relay services. This significant achievement underscores our commitment to regulatory compliance and user safety, making us one of the few certified providers setting new standards for accessibility and ease of use in relay services.
