Cien Inc., a Dallas, TX-based provider of AI-powered sales productivity solutions, completed a $3.5M seed funding round.
The round was led by Elaia ($1.2M) with participation from the founders and private investors. In conjunction with the transaction, Xavier Lazarus, Partner at Elaia, is joining Cien’s board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its market presence in North America.
Led by Rob Kall, CEO, Cien provides plug and play software that calculates over 100 million predictions per day and uncovers tens of millions of dollars in lost sales opportunities. The solution allows B2B companies to improve the effectiveness of their sales teams by applying artificial intelligence to their CRM data, without the need for building and hiring dedicated data-science teams.
It is available on the Salesforce AppExchange.
The company also operates a Center of Excellence for data science and artificial intelligence in Barcelona.
