Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 15 March 2023 – KeyTrends.ai closes its first round.

The company will use the capital raised in the round to boost its national expansion strategy and to further improve its platform, integrate new data sources and expand its international business.
The first data-driven generative AI
According to its founders, KeyTrends aims to revolutionise the world of content generation by companies. “All companies need to have a content strategy to improve their digital business and grow their brand and visibility. Having generative AI tools doesn’t solve that need. That’s why Keytrends.ai goes one step further by helping them define their strategy, assisting in AI content and measuring its impact,” says Dani Pinillos, CPO & CMO of KeyTrends.
Currently, the platform has more than 2,000 users who have already discovered trends, created content and increased their visibility, including companies such as PC Componentes, Axel Springel, or Cinfa, which are growing with the platform. “Unlike other similar AI tools that also write automated content, the tool analyses and discovers traffic opportunities, content ideas and trends about what your buyers are looking for. It is different because it creates content based on search and competition data, and because it adds keywords and entities to make optimised content for users and search engines. That’s why we say KeyTrends is the first data-driven generative AI,” adds Pinillos.
The startup plans to dedicate the capital raised to its national and international expansion
The startup was founded in September 2021 by entrepreneurs Daniel Pinillos, former CEO of FunnelPunk SEO consultancy, Álvaro Reguera, former VC at Elewit and Repsol and José Domingo García, CTO with more than 10 years of experience in development. The company’s objective is to revolutionise the world of content generation by companies, making them gain in quality and agility when managing and creating their content, thanks to the fact that with KeyTrends they only need one tool, but above all because they increase their online visibility.
In addition, with KeyTrends, companies are up to date with the latest trends and content opportunities in their sector or their client’s sector (and they detect them 10 times faster). They can know at all times what their current content strategy is, what is working for them and what they are missing out on. And above all, they can manage all content and their team of writers in one place, saving up to 90% of time in content generation.
The company is also aiming to exceed €300,000 in turnover and consolidate its national and international expansion in line with its approved business plan for the coming months.
