Intenseye Secures Record-Breaking $64 Milion Series B to Advance Its Mission of Transforming Workplace Safety With AI

Fundraise follows momentous year in which 36 million unsafe acts and conditions were identified for customers in 25 countries, and additional industry titans joined dozens of other Fortune 500 innovators in trusting Intenseye to transform their workplace safety at scale

Intenseye, the leader in AI-powered workplace safety solutions, secured $64 million in series B funding led by new investor Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from existing investors Insight Partners, Point Nine, and Air Street Capital. This latest infusion of capital is the industry’s largest ever and follows a historic year for Intenseye, marked by the proactive detection of tens of millions of workplace hazards and global growth and expansion across six continents.

Intenseye’s enterprise-ready computer vision AI platform delivers 24/7 visibility into unsafe acts and conditions that precede work-related injuries or illnesses — and that often go unnoticed via manual audits. Having alerted customers to more than 36 million such instances in 2023 alone, the solution is purpose-built to empower environmental health and safety (EHS) teams to drive changes that enhance efficiency, streamline compliance, and ultimately help prevent workplace incidents without compromising worker privacy.

With this latest round of funding, Intenseye will expand its technology ecosystem to unlock even greater value in customers’ existing infrastructure, further incorporate large language models (LLMs) and mobile support to optimize dozens of use cases, and continue to invest in privacy innovations – including an upcoming Gen AI video anonymization feature – that reaffirm its commitments to ethical AI and to fostering psychological safety for the workers it protects.

“The scope, scale, and costs of workplace incidents are escalating rapidly, underscoring the critical need for AI-driven solutions that help pinpoint and mitigate hazards while aligning to the highest standards of accuracy, privacy, and enterprise readiness,” said Sercan Esen, Intenseye CEO. “Intenseye isn’t just a ‘nice to have’— we’re proud to be at the forefront of a long-overdue transformation that is empowering EHS leaders to more effectively and efficiently protect their frontline teams. We’re honored that dozens of Fortune 500 innovators rely on Intenseye to transform workplace safety across their facilities.”

According to Miguel Ángel Aguilera Rodríguez, Digital & Technology Supply Chain Manager at HEINEKEN Mexico, “Through ongoing dedication to process enhancements and embracing cutting-edge technologies, we steadfastly uphold our commitment to providing safe and healthy work environments. Intenseye is a key ally in advancing these endeavors. By equipping us with real-time insight into leading indicators, the platform helps us drive proactive improvements that mitigate risks facing our frontline teams.”
The urgent need to transform workplace safety

The International Labour Organization reports nearly 3 million people worldwide die from work-related accidents and diseases each year, and nearly 400 million worldwide suffer non-fatal work-related injuries each year. An American Industrial Hygiene Association study confirms the worldwide direct and indirect financial costs of workplace incidents is an estimated nearly $3 trillion per year; annual losses in the U.S. alone due to unplanned downtime are estimated at $50 billion.

Intenseye is the only computer vision AI-powered workplace safety solution provider to embed a full suite of highly advanced and completely irreversible privacy measures into its products as standard. Unlike other vendor offerings, Intenseye’s solution guarantees the anonymity of the worker, stripping personally identifiable information from all video captured.

“Intenseye is an exemplary AI-first company,” said Nathan Benaich, partner at Air Street Capital. “The team seized on a real-world problem that costs businesses hundreds of billions of dollars but is hiding in plain sight. By building on top of existing but under-utilized camera investments, Intenseye adds 24/7 safety intelligence that drives measurable change in the service of workforces worldwide. We’re proud to have supported Sercan and his team from day one of their journey.”
