London-based Cognism has raised $87.5 million in a Series C round. The B2B sales intelligence provider offers compliant contact, company, and event data to over 1,000 sales teams worldwide. The new investment round will help solidify the company’s position in the US and expand across continental Europe, namely through organic growth and a series of planned acquisitions. To date, Cognism has raised a total of $123.5 million.
“No other software company offers a truly global sales intelligence platform like Cognism. By pairing our premium quality contact data with advanced contextual data points like technographics and buyer intent signals, we help modern revenue teams connect with confidence and exceed targets,” commented CEO James Isilay. “We enable them to build a meaningful connection with their next best customer in the most predictable, efficient, and cost-effective way.”
The company now has customers operating in 40+ countries around the globe, with 250 employees based in seven countries including the US, the UK, Canada, South Africa, Croatia, Macedonia, and Germany. 2021 saw the opening of a US office in Boston, and an impressive ARR growth of 100%.
Cognism’s $87.5 million round was led by new investors Viking Global Investors and Blue Cloud Ventures, and saw follow-on investments from AXA Venture Partners, and Swisscom Ventures.
