Below is our recent interview with Chris Lu, Co-Founder of Copy.ai:
Q: This is the first time we have spoken. Can you provide a brief overview of Copy.ai?
A: Paul Yacoubian and I (Chris Lu) were investors for the past 5 years. We were fascinated by entrepreneurship, especially at the earliest stage of starting a business from an idea. We wanted to figure out ways to increase the number of entrepreneurs working on the future and started a few side projects to help people find their passion and unique business idea.
Q: How does your platform help companies?
A: When GPT-3 (the AI algorithm) came out, we knew that AI may have a huge role in lowering the barriers to entrepreneurship. As a result, Copy.ai was born. We launched on October 15th, 2020 and the team is now 5 people with 2 more offers accepted. We are hyper-focused on supporting the small business owners, the ecommerce stores, and social media managers.
Q: For those who are interested in using Copy.ai, tell us something more about pricing?
A: We currently charge between $35/month and $49/month depending on if you are paying annually or monthly!
Q: You’ve recently raised $2.9 Million in Seed funding; can you tell us something more?
A: We fundraised so we can hire a team to improve the product much faster than we otherwise could. We believe in democratizing access to this powerful AI to empower people to start their own business.
Q: What are your plans and goals for the future?
A: We have ambitions to become a global company and lower the barriers of entrepreneurship across the entire world!
