Nektar.ai, a B2B productivity startup, has raised an additional $6 million seed funding round led by B Capital Group, 3One4 Capital, and Nexus Venture Partners. Several well-known Go To Market players in the US-Asia cross-border SaaS ecosystem took part in the round.
The funds will be utilized to grow research and development, product and engineering functions, and create a Go To Market team focused on launching the product in the United States.
Nektar.ai was founded in 2020 by Abhijeet Vijayvergiya and Aravind Ravi Sulekha, two seasoned early-stage SaaS company executives. It intends to exit the beta and make the product available to the general public in the first half of 2022.
2020 transformed the world of B2B Sales and fundamentally changed the way B2B selling and buying gets done. Modern, fast-growing distributed teams work in data silos and operate many disconnected sales & marketing tools. This leads to problems like poor visibility into the revenue data, accountability gaps across revenue function, inconsistent playbook adoption, and lack of collaboration within revenue teams, making it harder to create a repeatable sales process and a predictable revenue engine. We want to enable growing SaaS sales teams to execute a scalable revenue engine and unlock their growth flywheel faster.Mr. Vijayvergiya, co-founder & CEO
The AI-powered guided selling solution from Nektar.ai fits alongside CRM platforms like Salesforce. To offer immediate insights on leading indications, it collects buyer/seller data from various sources, including email, Calendar, Web Conference, and communication platforms like Slack, CRM, Linkedin, and WhatsApp. It also integrates these insights into workflow tools like email, Slack, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams, allowing seamless communication across customer-facing revenue teams.
Gabe Greenbaum, a general partner of B Capital Group, said, “Nektar.ai’s solutions provide great value to distributed revenue teams, which is even more important as enterprises conduct further business across global markets. B Capital is always eager to work with experienced and knowledgeable founders, and we’re confident that the Nektar.ai team will continue their strong momentum on the path to becoming the industry-leading tool for enterprise sales productivity.”
