Tredence, the Data Science and AI Solutions company, has raised USD 175 million in Series B funding from Advent International to hasten the realization of AI value for companies and data-fueled growth. Existing investor Chicago Pacific Founders also took part in the deal.
According to a release, the San Jose-based startup intends to use the investment to maintain its current rate of development, strengthen its vertical capabilities, and broaden its clientele.
With the $175 million investment, Advent, one of the biggest global private equity firms, will purchase a minority position in Tredence. The agreement’s complete financial details have not been made public.
“Advent’s global reach, deep sector expertise, and vast experience in scaling businesses like ours through organic and inorganic growth will be invaluable to us as we look to drive continued business innovation,” said Tredence CEO Shub Bhowmick.
The company created a vertical AI go-to-market strategy to solve industry difficulties in 2021. This strategy combines strong data science skills with a commercial context.
The company’s vertical AI approach will center on ATOM.AI, an integrated accelerator environment that leads businesses from design to experience to value. Private venture funding for the startup has totaled $30 million to date.
“Tredence is leading the way in designing data analytics strategies, uncovering actionable insights, and implementing outcomes-based AI engagement models for clients,” said Mary Tolan, Founder and Managing Partner, Chicago Pacific Founders.
