Lightship Capital is excited to announce our investment in Vyrill, a brilliant company leveraging Artificial Intelligence to enable brands in effectively identifying and engaging their target markets. Led by founder and CEO Ajay Bam, the Company recently closed an oversubscribed seed round totaling $2.5MM including participation from angel investors and Lightship Capital.
“At Lightship, we invest in specific industries. This allows us to focus on things we do well, and where we can help founders to have a demonstrable advantage. Two of our favorite industries are Artificial Intelligence and Consumer Packaged Goods. We see a winner in both of these spaces in Vyrill. They use AI to make CPG companies unstoppable, giving them a true superpower. The power to see, understand, and react to any content, anywhere, at any time. It’s like magic, and we are so excited to be investors in this transformative company.”
Vyrill appeared on Season 7 of Twitch Pitch, where they finished as finalists. The Company is looking forward to working with our Cincinnati, Ohio based team to closely align with the region’s CPG giants and leverage its ecommerce strengths.
“We are delighted to have Lightship Capital as one of our investors. They bring expertise and connections in the e-commerce and CPG space, and are helping us grow talent and customers in the Midwestern region of United States.” – Ajay Bam, CEO and Co-Founder of Vyrill
