Leading technology companies back fast-growing AI startup’s mission to build supply chain resilience in funding round led by NightDragon
ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 06, 2021 — Interos, the fast-growing operational resilience company, today announced that two new strategic industry partners – Accenture (through Accenture Ventures’ Project Spotlight program), and Coupa Ventures – have joined the company’s $100M Series-C funding round, as NightDragon and Interos collaborate with like-minded organizations seeking to transform how enterprises and governments create resilience in the face of continued supply shocks.
The collaboration brings together not just visionary technology and service providers but also leading venture capital firms including NightDragon – who led Interos’ Series-C round – Kleiner Perkins, and Venrock, in recognizing the urgent need to deliver operational resilience to alleviate global bottlenecks and safeguard critical networks.
“We are extremely honored to have Accenture and Coupa – both recognized innovators in their fields – join forces with Interos as strategic investors in the company,” said Jennifer Bisceglie, Interos’ founder and CEO. “If the past two years have shown us anything, it’s that nothing about our supply chains or global economy can be taken for granted, and that building resilience and stability will require unprecedented collaboration and teamwork.”
The group, assembled by NightDragon, unites industry leaders in supply chain resilience, spend management, automation, and systems integration to fight back against uncertainty in the global economy.
“Supply chain disruption is the most pressing issue of our time,” said Dave DeWalt, founder and managing director of NightDragon. “We are proud that our network and business development efforts helped bring together Interos’ unique resilience technology, Accenture’s unmatched understanding of industries, technology and security services innovation, and Coupa’s leading business spend management expertise. These are the powerful resources we need working together to effectively tackle this challenge from all sides.”
The closing of the round, which launched Interos to a valuation of more than $1B and Unicorn status, comes on the heels of an expanded product offering by Interos which adds new depth to the way companies and government organizations can visualize their extended sub-tier supply chains.
