Axtria's latest funding is the first institutional funding the company has received,  Axtria Chief Executive Jassi Chadha told Bloomberg. He said that Astria is already operating at a profit, and that it could be ready to go public within the next three to five years.

Bain Capital Managing Director Darren Abrahamson said in a statement that he likes Axtria because it’s solving a unique pain point in the life sciences industry. He explained that pharmaceutical companies have struggled to work out how to leverage the vast amounts of data they have and use it intelligently to drive thoughtful decision-making. Axtria gives them to the tools they need to do that, he said.
