– The AI assistant developer plans to grow its team and refine its product with the newly acquired funds.

  • Global user base surged from 17 million in October 2023 to 40 million, with significant growth in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, and Spain.

    In May 2024, Spanish startup Luzia, known for its AI assistant that integrates with WhatsApp and Telegram, announced a significant funding boost.

    This infusion of capital marks a continuation of growth for Luzia, following a previous round in October last year that raised $9.5 million led by Gasol16 Ventures and Khosla Ventures.

    Luzia’s strategy focuses on recruiting high-level engineers and product specialists to strengthen its development team. The company, which is set to expand its employee base to around 50 by year’s end, has plans to open a new office in Barcelona, adding to its existing locations in Madrid and Alicante. This expansion underscores Luzia’s ambition to consolidate its position as the leading AI application in Latin America.

    With an increase in its global user base to 40 million, Luzia is positioning itself to meet the evolving needs of its users by integrating more personalized features into its platform. CEO Álvaro Martínez Higes expressed enthusiasm about the funding’s role in accelerating user growth and laying the groundwork for a sustainable business model.
