Sinequa, a recognized leader in the AI-powered search and analytics market, today announced a $23 million Series B funding round led by Jolt Capital and supported by Troismer BVBA, an existing investor. With this new funding, Sinequa will invest in its award-winning AI-powered search and analytics platform that connects knowledge workers in some of the world’s largest organizations with the information, expertise and insights necessary to make information-driven decisions.

According to IDC, by 2020 organizations able to analyze enterprise content and data assets to deliver actionable information and insights will achieve an extra $430 billion in productivity benefits over their less analytically oriented peers.

Fabrice de Salaberry, COO at Sinequa added, “Sinequa has recorded strong growth year over year culminating at 91 percent for 2018. With these additional resources, we will continue to innovate and focus on ways to better serve our customers while broadening our market footprint and expanding our partner ecosystem. The entire organization is excited to enter this new phase of accelerated growth.”

“Our mission, as a private equity tech investor in Europe, is to back innovative technology companies like Sinequa, which deliver outstanding financial performance. Sinequa provides a comprehensive and robust AI-powered search platform using state-of-the-art natural language processing and machine-learning technologies enabling large organizations to extract value from data. Given this strong market pull, we are delighted to team up with Sinequa and support its next phase of global expansion,” said Jean Schmitt, managing partner at Jolt Capital.
