Kagi Inc. is a company created with the mission to humanize the web. Our goal is to amplify the web of human knowledge, creativity, and self-expression.

We want to bring a friendly version of the internet, one that has users' best interest in mind, into homes worldwide through our portfolio of best in class products - search engine, web browser, and soon email.

Kagi was founded in 2018 by Vladimir Prelovac in Palo Alto, CA (USA). Kagi's advisory board consists of Raghu Murthi, Dr. Norman Winarsky and Stephen Wolfram. Our team is a fully remote team operating on all continents.

Kagi has been bootstrapped by the founder from 2018 to 2023. In 2023, Kagi raised $670K from Kagi members in its first external fundraise.

Kagi Inc. currently has two core products: Kagi Search, a fast, private search engine, and Orion Browser, a fast, zero-telemetry browser. We also have a number of other products such as the Universal Summarizer, FastGPT, Kagi Small Web, open-source projects and APIs.

What Does "Kagi" Mean?

The word "kagi" means "key" in Japanese.

Kagi is pronounced as kah-gee. You can listen to the pronunciation.

People sometimes ask: why does Kagi have a "g" logo in the Google ballpark rather than a "k"?

Our designer insisted the Kagi logo is "anchored" in the letter "g," and we had to agree. Besides, we can't let Google own the letter "g" too, can we? 😉

Who is Kagi's Mascot?

We simply call him ”Doggo” for now. He's adorable!
