Neeva, a privacy-focused search company co-founded by former Google executive Sridhar Ramaswamy, announced on Saturday that it will be shutting down its consumer search engine. The company will now focus on exploring artificial intelligence use cases. In a blog post, Ramaswamy and co-founder Vivek Raghunathan wrote that acquiring users has been a challenge and the current economic environment has made it clear that a business in consumer search is not sustainable.

“This was a very tough decision that took into account lots of things: our business progress so far, the current funding environment and our ability to continue to grow quickly in this vastly changed search environment,” Ramaswamy said in a tweet.

Neeva was built in 2019 after Ramaswamy left his role as senior vice president of Google’s ad business, citing disillusionment with the company’s relentless focus on growth at the expense of users. Neeva will explore use cases for generative AI and large language models in search going forward. The company’s consumer search product will shut down over the next few weeks, and Neeva users with a paid subscription to Neeva Premium will receive a refund for the unused portion. The company is also deleting all user data as part of the shutdown.
