DataGen’s Not Closing, Pivoting for the Future of Generative AI Staff


Contrary to the uncorroborated coverage by Israeli media outlets earlier this week of Israeli synthetic data startup, DataGen, the startup is not on the brink of closure. It is however undergoing a strategic pivot in their core strategy in light of the technological shifts underway by the Generative AI media creation landscape.

In a conversation with, CTO Gil Elbaz explained that the startup is in fact very well capitalized and simply restructuring their trajectory to produce a competitive offering against the backdrop of the text-to-image and even text-to-video media asset creation sphere (like that of Midjourney and Dall-E). The startup continues to operate with a dedicated team of over 20 employees.

Elbaz penned his thoughts minutes ago in a Linkedin post:

Elbaz is stepping down from his role as CTO.

In March 2022, DataGen raised a $50 million Series B funding round led by Scale Venture Partners. Their investors include TLV Partners, Viola Ventures, Spider Capital and Operator Partners. The startup was founded in 2018 by Ofir Chakon and Elbaz.

In Memory of The Murdered

In the early morning on Saturday, October 7th, 2023, terrorist group Hamas infiltrated southern Israel and massacred innocent Israelis, from infants to seniors.

They were mercilessly killed, in unspeakable ways. and the entire technology community pause to honor the murdered. We remember them. We honor their memory and the brightest futures they were supposed to live.

May their families and friends find solace. We grieve with you.

We pray for the release of hostages currently held in Gaza.
