Lynk, a global AI-driven Knowledge-as-a-Service platform, extended its previously announced Series B to include new funding from UBS’s Investment Bank business division.
UBS’s investment brings Lynk’s total funding to date up to $35M.
The company plans to use the funds to expand its offerings and global reach.
