AI startup Salesken raised $22 million in Series B led by M12 Microsoft’s Venture Fund where existing investors including Sequoia India also participated.
Salesken offers an AI-powered in-call live sales intelligence platform that develops insights on gaps in customers' sales calls and assists sales representatives in bridging those gaps with real-time cues. Salesken plans to use the new funds to accelerate its expansion in the North American market and to invest more in its proprietary deep tech product. The company expects to expand its 125-person team to 250 by the end of the year (March 2022), with increased hiring in technology and data science, as well as partial hiring in the United States for sales and marketing growth. Salesken's commercial operations began in January 2020. They are headquartered in Bengaluru, India, and have operations in Delaware, US.
