Funds to fuel development of generative AI platform for team upskilling and enablement
Korbit Technologies Inc., a generative AI platform for team upskilling and enablement, is excited to announce it has raised $11.3 million with the closing of their Series A. The round was led by Khosla Ventures and joined by investors Jobs for the Future, Desjardins Capital, Global Brains, Alumni Ventures, Merus Capital, Graphite Ventures, and True Equity. The funding will be used to further invest in the development of their AI platform and to launch the AI Mentor for Software Engineering, a generative AI solution that optimizes the software development process, automatically. The AI Mentor does code reviews, detects and assigns issues, and teaches engineers how-to fix the issues, all within their workflow.
We're excited to be backing Korbit. Their generative AI platform for team upskilling and enablement provides a much-needed solution for transforming the future of work.

About The Korbit AI Mentor for Software Engineering
Korbit’s AI Mentor for Software Engineering is a generative AI solution that dynamically detects and resolves coding issues in a way that’s personalized for each engineer and their specific development environment. It’s like having a personal coach, code reviewer, and mentor assigned to each engineer all the time. It dramatically improves engineering code quality, and productivity, while reducing the workload burden on Sr. Engineers that normally perform those tasks. The solution further enables engineering managers to see all of the issues and upskilling activity to better understand team performance and skills, and to better conduct project planning and team building.
This new paradigm will forever change how teams work and upskill, and will dramatically increase productivity.
- Iulian Vlad Serban, Chief Executive Officer of Korbit Technologies

The AI Mentor's key features are:
- Automated code reviews: Scans your source code, then detects and assigns issues.
- Issue Resolution: Explains issues and recommends solutions.
- Personalized Upskilling: Teaches how-to fix the issues with live instructions, advice, tutorials and coding exercises, all within the engineer’s working environment.
- Tracking and Reporting: Tracks and reports on the issues detected, resolved, and all upskilling activity.
- Project Planning: Matches engineers to upcoming tasks and projects based on skills
- Project Onboarding: Proactively upskills engineers to get them ready for projects and tasks.
