Taikametrics, a Boston MA-based platform for sellers on Amazon and Walmart, raised $40M in Series B funding.
The round was led by Intel Capital with participation from GoDaddy, Centana Growth Partners, Lydia Jett, Jump Capital and Granite Point Capital.
The company intends to use the funds for the expansion of its AI-powered SaaS platform, Flywheel 2.0, and bring decision-making capabilities to online sellers globally.
Founded in 2015 and led by Alasdair McLean-Foreman, Taikametrics provides a SaaS-based, AI-powered Marketplace Optimization Platform for sellers and brand owners to maximize their potential on the world’s most valuable marketplaces. The system enables:
