Glaut conducts in-depth AI-moderated interviews with customers at scale.

Glaut has successfully closed a $1.4M pre-seed round, led by Italian Founders Fund, with the participation of Brainstorm Ventures, Alecla7, Ithaca, BHeroes, Club degli Investitori, Eden Ventures, Delirus Capital and notable angel investors like David Clarke (ex Workday) and Pietro Cesati (ex Soisy).

Matteo Cera and Giovanni del Gallo started Glaut in late 2023 to help marketing teams of B2C brands make better commercial decisions based on a new approach to customer and market research: conversational surveys.

Quantitative surveys often lack depth and fail to elucidate the reasons behind the data.

Our software approaches customer research with a qualitative approach, engaging customers and users in meaningful conversations.

Glaut delves deep with personalized follow-up questions, synthesizing responses into actionable business insights.

Matteo Cera, co-founder of Glaut, highlights the advantage of using Glaut compared to the traditional multiple-choice surveys

Glaut is as easy to use as a Google Form, but unlike multiple-choice surveys, it can engage people in long-form, open-ended conversations to surface what they think about brands, products and experiences.

Glaut has worked with research agencies (like Altum Insights, Marketagent and Eumetra) and renowned international brands, including Condé Nast, AutoScout24, and Mondadori Media in just a couple of months since its launch.

These industry leaders have conducted thousands of Glaut interviews for customer research projects focused on branding, ad testing, idea prototyping and customer experience.

Glaut is the fastest, deepest, most consistent method of gathering qualitative data at scale that I have ever seen. It is not just an improvement on other methods – its power and flexibility make it something new within the market research space, in a class of its own.

We are excited since Glaut has an incredible potential in uncovering valuable insights for B2C brands, differently from standard tools, by providing the empathy and depth of one-on-one customer interviews.

For the first time, we let our respondents speak about brands with their own words. In addition, Glaut saved us over 100 hours in analyzing thousands of interviews to extract key insights from them.
