Affinity, a relationship intelligence platform, raised $26.5 million in a Series B round led by Advance Venture Partners and Sway Ventures, with additional participation from MassMutual Ventures, Pear Ventures and more. This brings the company’s total funding up to $40.5 million.
The funding will be used to further the company’s mission to provide a data platform that uses AI to analyze business relationships and make introductions to key decision makers. As part of the agreement, David T. IbnAle, Founding and Managing Partner of Advance Venture Partners, has joined Affinity’s board of directors.
“Our goal is to create a world in which anyone can tap into the full power of their network to start a company, land a dream job, close a huge deal or otherwise find great opportunities for business success,” said Ray Zhou, Co-Founder and CEO of Affinity, in a statement. “We’re building the technology infrastructure that will make that possible for everyone.”
