In a nutshell

  • Pythagora, an AI dev tool with Croatian founders, announced the successful closure of a $4M seed funding round.
  • The investors include Y Combinator, Polish Inovo VC, 500 Emerging Europe, Moonfire, Rebel, and Uphonest Capital.
  • The funding will be used to scale the company’s research and development, while also fueling growth and user adoption over the next few years. 


Get the details

Pythagora, established in 2023 by Leon Ostrez, Senko Rasic, and Zvonimir Sabljic, is a complete AI developer that builds apps through natural language interaction. Leveraging Large Language Models (LLMs) and advanced machine learning algorithms, it aims to ensure optimal efficiency and quality by enabling smooth communication between users and the AI developer. One of the main goals is automating developer workflows by streamlining tasks. 

At the heart of Pythagora’s solution is GPT Pilot, an open-source tool, which facilitates app creation through conversational interaction with the AI developer. According to their data, it boasts a user base of 30K active developers. 


In their own words

“While LLMs demonstrate the ability to generate code snippets akin to a seasoned developer,” explained Zvonimir, Pythagora’s co-founder. “Building production-ready apps entails essential repetitive and deterministic steps, including code commits, debugging, iterative refinement, requirement adjustments, and meticulous refactoring, processes integral to every developer’s workflow,” he added.


Investor’s perspective

Pythagora’s impressive open source traction, high rate of recurrent users, and the full fledged applications developed with it demonstrate the unique expertise of the founding team to tackle this massive opportunity – making it a no brainer decision for us to invest,” shared Enis Hulli, General Partner at 500 Emerging Europe.
