6sense, an account engagement platform, secured $200 million in a Series E funding round, bringing its total valuation to $5.2 billion 10 months after its $125 million Series D round. The investment was co-led by Blue Owl and MSD Partners, among other new and existing investors.
The company said it will use the new capital to deliver the future of email for B2B marketing and sales teams, which includes expanding the capabilities of recently acquired AI-driven email marketing platform Saleswhale. 6sense plans to further extend Saleswhale’s native engagement channels into the 6sense platform to build on its “RevTech Revolution” promise to help put the power of AI, big data and machine learning behind every member of the revenue team.
Additionally, the latest funding will accelerate GTM strategies such as:
- Further expansion in EMEA, Australia and other international markets to support market demand;
- Investing in people and technology to continue building against its aggressive product strategy; and
- Addressing demand from financial services, manufacturing and health and life services verticals.
“Nineteen months ago, we ignited the RevTech Revolution with a promise to provide the only AI-driven platform that unifies data, people and processes to unlock predictable revenue potential,” said Jason Zintak, CEO of 6sense, in a statement. “We've delivered on this promise and the market has spoken. Our growth continues to outpace every competitor in our category, and customers consistently rave about the exceptional results they see with 6sense. This investment adds fuel to our trajectory and gives us the ability to accelerate on our commitments.”
