SparkCognition, a global artificial intelligence (AI) leader based in Austin, Texas that builds technologies advancing the most important interests of society, partnered with Pierpont to roll out the company’s $100 million Series C funding round in October of 2019.
Led by institutional investors such as March Capital Partners and Temasek, the Series C news was easily one of the most important announcements in the startup’s history. It brought SparkCognition’s total funding since its inception in 2013 to $175 million and made the company one of the most valuable AI startups in the United States.
Pierpont garnered an impressive collection of top-tier media coverage highlighted by an exclusive with Reuters, embargoed feature stories in the Austin American-Statesman and Austin Business Journal plus placements in the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Axios and numerous other tech and financial outlets. The effort was capped off by a week ending live, 4-minute interview conducted by SparkCognition’s CEO Amir Husain with Cheddar Business TV.
