Eightfold AI announced that it has raised a $220M Series E funding round. The funds will be used to continue the rapid growth and development of Eightfold’s AI-powered Talent Intelligence Platform and expand its growing partner ecosystem.
This Series E funding round is led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2* and also includes investors from previous rounds, including General Catalyst, Capital One Ventures, Foundation Capital, IVP and Lightspeed Venture Partners. Total funding raised to date by Eightfold AI is more than $410M, with more than $350M coming in the last several months.
“Current HR systems were designed to address issues from a previous era, and they have failed to keep pace with the changing nature of work and the workforce. At Eightfold, we have an unprecedented opportunity, using AI to align the career goals of individuals while simultaneously creating better results for employers,” said Ashutosh Garg, Founder & CEO at Eightfold. “Transforming HR and global talent further unlocks trillions of dollars worth of human potential. SoftBank shares our bold vision, and we are excited to welcome them as our partner.”
Since the announcement of Eightfold AI’s Series D funding round in October of 2020, the valuation of the organization has more than doubled. This is a direct result of the significant momentum achieved by customers and partners in the public and private sector.
“Powered by AI and machine learning, Eightfold’s platform provides global enterprises with a single solution for managing the entire talent lifecycle, including hiring, retaining, and growing a diverse global workforce,” said Deep Nishar, Senior Managing Partner at SoftBank Investment Advisers.
