AI storytelling startup Tome triples its user base to 3 million in just a month, to launch paid subscription
ChatGPT took the internet by storm in November after OpenAI released its dialogue-based AI chatbot which has been hailed as a potential game-changer in the world of artificial intelligence (AI). Just five days after its launch, ChatGPT crossed one million users, making it one of the most successful apps ever launched.
The popularity of OpenAI ChatGPT has led to a boom in the adoption of generative artificial intelligence (AI) and big tech companies and small startups alike are in a race to integrate it into their products. About two weeks ago, Salesforce announced the launch of EinsteinGPT, a large language model (LLM) product that uses the ChatGPT model to automatically write marketing emails.
But Salesforce is not alone. There are several other startups that are in a race with Big Tech such as Microsoft and Google. One of those startups is Tome, an artificial intelligence storytelling startup that helps users generate outlines about your topics in seconds. Tome enables you to unlock your best work with its AI-powered storytelling format.
As its AI products grow in popularity, Tome founder and CEO Keith Peiris told Reuters that the startup has seen its user numbers triple in a month to 3 million and the startup is now planning to launch a paid subscription in the coming weeks
“It’s a push into work and enterprise use cases for us after all the demand we’ve seen,” said Peiris, co-founder of Tome. “We want to use AI to shape and aid in every part of the process of taking an idea in your head and then translating it to a compelling story.”
Following a funding round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners last month at a $300 million valuation, Tome experienced both an increase in user growth and the launch of a new product. Greylock and Coatue are also among the company’s backers.
Tome’s product is currently free to use, but a paid tier will soon be available for approximately $10 per month to ensure unlimited access for users. According to Peiris, it caters to a wide range of clients, including startup companies and college students.
In a statement, Reid Hoffman, partner at Greylock that invested in Tome, who also sits on the board of Microsoft, said: “Startups tend to be faster, moving, iterating and deploying new technologies because they don’t have an existing customer base.”
Currently in public beta, Tome allows you to create pitch decks or slideshow-style presentations. All you have to do is enter a prompt and Tome generates about eight pages of AI-powered storytelling presentation.
