Pune and Seattle-based Icertis is a startup that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to manage contracts on the cloud.

The latest funding round was led by existing investor B Capital Group, along with investors Premji Invest, PSP Growth, Greycroft, Meritech Capital Partners, and e.ventures.
The firm said it will be using this money to invest in “accelerating AI (artificial intelligence) and blockchain development.” It also added that it will also utilise the funds to expand its sales and marketing efforts.
In an exclusive interview with Business Insider last year, Darda, co-founder and chief technology officer (CTO) of Icertis had said that they will continue to hire aggressively to support their growth and expect the firm to increase its headcount 30% to 40% in 2021.
