Integration Wizards acquisition to help expand into new markets, says SparkCognition

New Delhi: The US-based unicorn SparkCognition on Sunday said its new acquisition of Bengaluru-based visual AI startup Integration Wizards will allow it to expand into new markets like retail, mining, and construction.

This is Texas-based SparkCognition’s fourth acquisition, all in AI space.

SparkCognition had acquired three other technology companies, opened HyperWerx, a first-of-its-kind AI proving ground, and closed a USD 123-million Series D round, achieving a unicorn valuation of over USD 1.4 billion.

SparkCognition has so far raised USD 300 million with investor participation from March Capital, Doha Venture Capital, B. Riley Venture Capital, AEI Horizon X, Temasek, Alan Howard, Peter Loscher, John Chambers, Kerogen Digital Solutions, Hearst Ventures, Dalus Capital, MSD Capital, Andrew Liveris, Sustainable Technology Ventures, Blue Horizon ex Ventures, Paul &Ann-Kristin Achleitner, Founders Equity Partners, Malcolm Turnbull and others.
