Luminoso Secures $10 Million in Series B Financing
Cambridge, MA—December 6, 2018—Luminoso, the natural language company that provides AI-
powered customer insights, today announced the closing of a $10 million Series B funding round
led by DVI Equity Partners. Also joining the round are Liberty Global Ventures, DF Enterprises,
Raptor Holdco, Acadia Woods Partners, and Accord Ventures, among others, many of whom
participated in Luminoso’s previous rounds of funding totaling over $20 million. Luminoso will
use the proceeds to expand and scale its team as its customer base continues to grow
Luminoso’s artificial intelligence and natural language technologies have fundamentally changed
how its clients automate the processing of unstructured data. Luminoso’s clients now find
insights in minutes, not months, by replacing the otherwise time-consuming process of manually
reading open-ended feedback from customers and employees without requiring massive
amounts of data or armies of human consultants.
“We believe Luminoso’s approach to machine learning leads a dramatic shift in how companies
directly incorporate feedback from customers and employees into their sales, marketing, and
product efforts,” said DVI managing partner Robert Griffin, who joins Luminoso’s board of
directors. “We’re looking forward to helping Luminoso further accelerate its growth with our
knowledge and experience in the artificial intelligence and data analysis space.”
Clients using Luminoso products have reported tangible advantages such as:
Deflecting 50% of incoming support tickets to automated responses and self-help articles
Finishing Voice of the Customer analyses in minutes rather than weeks of less accurate, manual processing
Reducing response times to Customer Experience queries from executive teams from one month to one hour
Processing Voice of the Employee surveys for over 500,000 employees across ten languages
Identifying critical customer-reported defects within minutes instead of days
“Our investors’ show of confidence reinforces how Luminoso’s value proposition — realizing increased sales and operating savings in days instead of months — is a game changer for how organizations discover insights from feedback,” said Adam Carte, CEO of Luminoso. “We’re eager to work with DVI Equity Partners and our other investors to further grow our customer base as we expand our North American operations and penetrate further into the European, Japan, and Asia-Pacific regions.”
