Tech firm Salesken on Thursday said it has raised USD 8 million in series A funding led by Sequoia India.
“The funding round was led by Sequoia India and also featured a secondary with investors such as Unitus Ventures and Michael and Susan Dell Foundation making partial exit,” a statement said. The transaction was facilitated by Masterkey Holdings, it added.
The funds will be used for further development of Salesken’s artificial intelligence-based conversation intelligence platform (Salesken.ai) and for expansion across the Asia Pacific and North America markets, a statement said.
Salesken helps companies with real-time intelligence during their sales conversations to help them win more deals. Sales teams using Salesken.ai receive intelligence on various aspects of the sales pitch, from lead qualification to navigating pricing discussions. They can also gauge the sentiments of their customers during the conversation.
