HighRadius Achieves Unicorn Status with $125 Million Series B Investment

HighRadius, the leader in Artificial Intelligence-powered Order-to-Cash and Treasury Management software, has raised $125 million in a Series B growth funding round led by ICONIQ Capital, with participation from existing investors Susquehanna Growth Equity and Citi Ventures. The new capital will be used to accelerate HighRadius’ continuing platform development and expansion of the company’s geographic reach.

HighRadius is headquartered in Houston, Texas and is trusted by more than 400 clients including more than 200 of the Forbes Global 2000. The HighRadius integrated platform for accounts receivables and treasury management leverages native AI capabilities to help companies optimize working capital. The HighRadius platform includes:

  • Rivana AI engine with machine learning algorithms trained on over $1 trillion in receivables per annum to automate routine tasks and provide insights such as predicting invoice payment dates.

  • Autonomous Receivables, an industry-first enterprise software—with a touch and voice user interface powered by the Freeda Digital Assistant—that brings the first ‘human + machine’ real-time interaction experience to corporate users.

  • AI-powered cash forecasting to fundamentally shift treasurers away from sub-optimal financing decisions made due to a lack of confidence in current excel-based heuristic models.

Sashi Narahari, Founder and CEO of HighRadius, said: “Today marks an important milestone for HighRadius and we’re thrilled to have ICONIQ join us in our vision to modernize the Order to Cash space. ICONIQ combines patient capital with a long-term vision of investing in category-defining businesses, and the firm has worked with some of the world’s most successful tech entrepreneurs. We are building HighRadius into a self-sustaining, long-term category leader, and ICONIQ is a great partner for us in this journey.”

“We’re thrilled to support HighRadius’ efforts to bring innovative AI capabilities to the financial side of the enterprise,” said Will Griffith, Partner at ICONIQ Capital. “As we have seen in many of our portfolio companies and past investments, including BlackLine and Coupa, digital transformation is increasingly a CFO priority. The HighRadius platform is game-changing for CFOs and finance departments, and the company has earned tremendous customer loyalty by enabling receivables and treasury teams to perform more efficiently and effectively, and by delivering mission-critical ROI. HighRadius fits squarely into our commitment to investing in best-in-class, long-term technology businesses driven by incredible teams, and we look forward to working alongside Sashi and the rest of the HighRadius team through their next phase of growth.”

HighRadius was advised by Atlas Technology Group for this transaction.
