Berlin-based real-time communications analysis and training startup i2x has landed a €10 million funding round led by UVC Partners and btov Partners, with participation from MS&AD Ventures, Asgard, and HV Holtzbrinck Ventures.

i2x, which employs about 40 people, is essentially a speech recognition solution for the English and German language with advanced AI on top of it, which can analyse conversations in real time and produce training units tailored for each sales or customer support representative. The system evaluates voices, moods, and speech patterns of the conversation participants.

“Michael Brehm and his team have developed an independent speech recognition and training tool that is unique on the international market in its precision, speed and flexibility,” said Jon Soberg, managing partner at MS&AD Ventures. “We see a big global opportunity for i2x. The great success achieved shortly after the launch confirms the extraordinary potential of this startup.”
