AI-based security startup P0 has raised $6.5 million in its seed round from Silicon Valley-based investor Lightspeed Venture Partners.
Founded by Kunal Agarwal, and Prakash Sanker, P0 works like an assistant for a developer, which utilises large language models (LLMs) to pinpoint safety and security concerns in software.
As per the startup, it carefully looks at the whole code to find any potential problems or vulnerabilities. It further tests the code using special inputs that it creates based on the context of the code itself.
Of late, AI startups have managed to raise decent funding. Recently, Ola founder Bhavish Aggarwal’s third startup Krutrim became India’s first AI unicorn with a $50 million funding round led by Matrix Partners India. Last month, gen AI startup Sarvam AI raised Series A funding of $41 million led by Lightspeed Venture Partners.
