Company Details

Update

Emu is texting with a built-in assistant. Schedule lunches, share your location, and set reminders — as easily as sending a photo. It’s texting, for grown-ups.

Created by veterans of Siri, Apple, Google, TechCrunch, and Yahoo! Messenger, Emu is a messaging product for iPhone that uses artificial intelligence — machine learning and natural language processing — to understand messages, then magically adds relevant information to help you schedule a lunch, reserve a table, buy movie tickets, or share your location in real time.

Emu (http://emu.is) was founded in 2012 by Gummi Hafsteinsson (formerly VP Product Siri, previously at Apple and Google), Dave Feldman (previously with AOL/TechCrunch and Yahoo!), and an experienced team of mobile and machine-learning engineers. The company has received seed funding of $1.5M to date from Kleiner Perkins, TriplePoint Capital, Menlo Ventures, DFJ, and additional angel investors. See our Founder Bios for more information on the founding team.
