Anyword, an AIsraeli I-based language optimization platform, announces $21 million in new funding, bringing the total raised to more than $30 million. The round was led by Innovation Endeavors, with additional participation from Tomer Cohen (Chief Product Officer of Linkedin), Yossi Matias (Managing Director of Google Israel), Omri Kaplan (Co-founder of Iron Source), Amir Orad (CEO of Sisense), Howard Lerman (CEO of Yext) and others

Anyword helps marketers design the perfect messages for their audiences across all platforms. The AI-based language optimization software analyzes billions of data points to create messages that show over a 30 percent lift in performance. Anyword has more than 1,000 customers with headquarters in New York and Israel. The company will use the new funding to fuel hiring efforts, continue building out its proprietary AI technology, and to onboard more marketing customers to the platform. 

“More than a billion marketing messages are created every day across digital channels, but marketing and sales professionals are still guessing when it comes to understanding what message is effective and why,” said Yaniv Makover, CEO and Co-Founder of Anyword. “AI can generate more than a thousand tweets for marketers but selecting the right one continues to be a challenge. In just a few years, it’s likely that AI generated content will become the new norm. Anyword ensures that marketers can harness AI’s ability to generate content, by providing predictive metrics for each message and insights into what part of the message works and for whom.”

Anyword’s predictive model was trained on billions of data points that were collected by A/B testing messages across industries, channels, audiences and marketing objectives. Since its March 2021 launch, Anyword has grown by an average of 40 percent month over month with thousands of customers including Ted Baker, PetCareRx, and Condé Nast. 

“Yaniv and his team of deep tech and product experts at Anyword have built a 10X platform that tells marketers what to say and how to say it in order to drive quantifiably better results,” said Rick Scanlon, Founding Partner at Innovation Endeavors. “Customers love Anyword not only because it works so well but also because it is vastly superior to anything else on the market today. The results are an incredible growth profile and exceptional customer loyalty.” 

Tomer Tagrin, CEO of ecommerce marketing platform Yotpo, will also join Anyword's board along with Scanlon and Dror Berman, Founding Partner of Innovation Endeavors.
