Amsterdam-based AI startup Tidalflow secures $1.7 million in funding. The investment is co-led by Gradient Ventures, Google’s AI-focused venture fund, and Dig Ventures, operated by MuleSoft founder Ross Mason, with additional backing from Antler.
The funds will be used to accelerate the development of Tidalflow’s platform which is designed to seamlessly integrate third-party software within Large Language Model (LLM) ecosystems via plugins. This allows AI to unlock the potential of software, turning knowledge into action.
Coen Stevens, CTO and co-founder of Tidalflow said, ‘‘Software is eating the world’ as Marc Andreessen proclaimed in 2011. While this still holds true, AI could use software more efficiently than humans, Tidalflow ensures that AI lives up to that potential and offers businesses reliable infrastructure to capitalize on this shift and not be left behind.”

Tidalflow’s plugin lifecycle management platform allows software businesses to develop, test, monitor and monetize an instance of their product to be compatible with LLMs. This opens new distribution channels and revenue streams to those businesses.
Sebastian Jorna, CEO and Co-founder of Tidalflow said, “Much like the iPhone ushered in a new era for mobile-friendly software in 2007, we’re now at a similar inflection point, namely for software to become LLM-compatible, Tidalflow serves as a catalyst to this new supercycle by providing an end-to-end platform for businesses to create, test and manage that LLM-instance of their product.”
Tidalflow isn’t just an integration platform—it’s a solution for the evolving landscape of AI and software interaction. As AI becomes increasingly competent at using software, businesses need a unified way to adapt without compromising on reliability. Tidalflow’s platform offers the tools for this adaptation, enabling businesses to not just keep pace with technological advancements but to monetize them.
Tidalflow is an AI startup based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Founded in 2023, Tidalflow is committed to bridging the technological divide between traditional software tooling and Large Language Models. With its end-end platform, Tidalflow aims to become a leader in the development, testing, deployment and management of LLM plugins. For more information.
