Innovapptive Raises $16.3 Million in Series A Funding, Led by Tiger Global Management

HOUSTON, Apr 16 2019 – Innovapptive, a leading connected workforce platform for asset intensive industries, announced today a Series A investment of $16.3 million led by Tiger Global Management, LLC, a New York investment firm. The financing will be used to fund Innovapptive’s continued global expansion and for further investment in its conversational operations platform. The new funding brings the company’s valuation to more than $65 million.

Innovapptive’s conversational operations platform enables equipment, machines, materials and drones talk to industry workers, field workers,  back office, suppliers, back office and executives to help deliver a unified experience for a highly efficient operating model. As a result, Innovapptive customers are growing their revenues and profitability. With this new funding, and more to come, Innovapptive is committed to drive the Industry 5.0 paradigm shift, where the human will be in the center of things—machines and methods are able to connect seamlessly in highly intelligent workflows.

“As we continue to strengthen our products, we’ve already seen compounding benefits for our customers. Insights become richer when fueled by data across the operations life-cycle - equipment, machines, materials can talk to field workers, industry workers, suppliers, back office, and executives to get a unified experience, and we can provide better software at a lower cost", said Sundeep Ravande, CEO and Co-founder of Innovapptive. “As we look ahead with a fresh round of funding, our aspiration to build a whole new category and the only "Conversational Operations" platform remains unchanged." 

“Innovapptive has developed a leadership position helping industrial companies improve the productivity of their employees and their capital assets,” said Scott Shleifer, Partner at Tiger Global Management.
