San Mateo-Based Theta Lake Raises $5 Million

By Noah Long ● January 21, 2019

Theta Lake, a San Mateo, California-based artificial intelligence compliance service for video, voice, and unified digital communications, has raised $5 million in Series Seed funding. Neotribe Ventures and Firebolt Ventures led this round of funding.

In the past year, Theta Lake signed partnerships with services like Zoom, Vidyard, Videolicious, and RingCentral. And the company also filed several patents for its compliance artificial intelligence for digital communication monitoring and workflow.


“Theta Lake is passionate about transforming digital communication compliance to reduce risk and compliance costs,” said Theta Lake co-founder and CEO Devin Redmond in a statement. “We continue to be inspired that our experience-led innovation is being well-received by customers, partners, and investors. Our recent industry analyst recognition and inclusion in the RegTech 100 is a great reflection of our momentum.”

What is the RegTech 100? It is a list that recognizes pioneering companies that are transforming compliance, risk management, and cybersecurity. About 824 companies were considered for the list, which is about double the number last year.

Theta Lake’s platform uses artificial intelligence to help compliance teams scale their risk detection and workflow for supervising communication on modern video, voice, and unified collaboration systems.

“We were impressed by Theta Lake’s category defining product work around compliance for video and voice mediums as well as their innovations in compliance workflow using AI,” added Neotribe Ventures founder and managing director Swaroop ‘Kitt’ Kolluri. “That, combined with an experienced and proven team of entrepreneurs, made this a clear investment choice for Neotribe. Theta Lake is a company with a clear, compelling vision and a solid path to get there.”

With this funding round, Theta Lake is going to develop its platform and increase its market share. The company is also going to immediately hire new team members across its offices in Santa Barbara and San Mateo.
