Peltarion Secures US$ 20M Series A Funding to Advance Humankind Through AI

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Peltarion, the world leader in Operational AI, today announced US$20
million series A financing led by Euclidean Capital alongside existing
investor FAM and EQT Ventures.

This latest round brings Peltarion’s total funding to US$ 34 million to
date, including previous investment from FAM, the holding company
privately owned by the three largest Wallenberg foundations, and EQT
Ventures.

Peltarion’s mission is to make AI technology useable and affordable for
governments, not-profits and businesses alike. It believes that making
AI operational will help to solve world problems – from food
distribution to disease diagnostics – more quickly and at scale. The

hard-to-find AI skills required to build AI products and services, while
reducing the need for expensive infrastructure.

make AI technology useable and affordable for all and this investment
will help us to grow and scale in order to do more good in the world.”
