Atomico leads the $11 million in Series A funding round to Pactum
Pactum, the Estonian-founded artificial intelligence platform that enables companies to automate personalised commercial negotiations, has raised USD 11 million in a Series A investment round.
The funding round was led by Atomico, an investment fund; with participation from Metaplanet, an early-state investment fund; Checkout.com CTO Ott Kaukver; TransferWise chairman and co-founder Taavet Hinrikus; and Teleport co-founder Sten Tamkivi.
The recent funding will allow the startup to scale up the deployment phase of its platform and brings the company’s total investment to USD15 million.
Pactum will use the funding to scale up the deployment phase of its artificial intelligence-based automated negotiation platform in response to what the company calls a “significant demand” in a statement.
