Air (51-200 Employees, 2 Yr Employee Growth Rate)
Air is the hub for creative work. Our product automates the mindless tasks that marketers do every day to manage content, and unlocks creativity through image recognition, automated versioning, and approval workflows. We launched in March 2021 and have raised +$28M from world-class venture capital groups including Tiger Global, Headline Ventures, Lerer Hippeau, WndrCo, and Slack Ventures.
We sell to innovative companies across a wide range of industries – ecommerce, direct-to-consumer, media and entertainment, and sports teams, just to name a few. Our customers are on the forefront of adopting new tools and processes, and our sales motions are collaborative and consultative by nature. The industries we serve are rapidly evolving and the markets we are selling into are enormous. Creative work is rapidly becoming a major investment area for all businesses, both B2B and B2C, and Air is at the forefront in helping shape this trend.
