Saudi-Based AI Startup Cycls Raises $1 Million in Pre-Seed Round

The startup has also launched Sarya, a chat-based experience that harnesses the power of generative AI.

Cycls, a Saudi Arabian AI startup, has secured $1 million in pre-seed funding. The startup has also recently unveiled Sarya, a chat-based experience that aims to transform the way users interact with technology.

"Stepping into a world where technology understands you, not the other way around - it's not just an idea, it’s our reality. And now, with Sarya, it’s yours too,” Mohammed Alrujayi, Co-Founder and CEO of Cycls, tells StartupScene. “We're going after a pivotal moment in tech history where machines finally don't merely compute but genuinely comprehend."

Sarya harnesses the power of generative AI, the underlying technology behind chatGPT, and communicates its output in a user-friendly format. Unlike traditional chatbots, Sarya offers a seamless and intuitive experience, allowing users to ask questions, engage in conversations, make purchases, and complete transactions all within a single chat window, known as the Superchat.

Cycls aims to integrate Sarya into a wide range of industries, including e-commerce, telecom, travel and personal finance, allowing users to access various services without the steep learning curve typically associated with new technologies.

At this point in time, Cycls is also expanding its operations from Saudi Arabia to the UAE.
