Accelerating platform capabilities
ContractPodAi has recently announced a US$115 million Series C investment headed by SoftBank Vision Fund 2. This latest round saw ContractPodAi's valuation increase 5x from its previous Series B round in 2019.
As part of the transaction, Ayush Jain of SoftBank Investment Advisers will join the ContractPodAi Board. Proceeds from the round will go towards further accelerating ContractPodAi's platform capabilities and expanding its market presence internationally, leveraging SoftBank's networks to capture new opportunities in the APAC region.
"We are just scratching the surface of what we can do," said Sarvarth Misra, Co-Founder and CEO of ContractPodAi. "The market is asking for a legal platform, a technology infrastructure that supports in-house legal teams like CRM does for sales teams or fintech for finance. With the backing of Insight Partners, Eagle Proprietary Investments, and now SoftBank Vision Fund 2, we are ready to win the market by driving digital transformation for our customers with our One Legal Platform approach."
ContractPodAi's 'One Legal Platform'
ContractPodAi's no-code platform allows teams to manage any legal scenario, process, or document using the platform's pre-built and configurable applications such as claims, RFP review, and IP portfolio management.
The platform also offers simple, guided forms and templates to create a legal application from scratch in minutes. Across both pre-built applications and configurable applications, the platform leverages an embedded toolkit of AI functionality like document review, cognitive search, and advanced analytics for each use case. Pre-built applications contain tailored AI data models tuned to the objective of each module.
