It has announced undisclosed funding received from its new appointments in key leadership positions, to execute the expansion.

“Our last fair market value was 20 million USD, and the current investments from selected key professionals have been made at this value. We hope to increase the valuation to 100 million USD in the next few months and have plans to raise 15 million USD from selected investors only. We are currently building our product pipeline and setting up our offices globally while doing pro bono work for governments in the fight against COVID-19. A large part of our workforce is currently working pro bono to defeat COVID-19, and we hope to execute our expansion plans soon after the COVID-19 fight subsides”, says Hardik Somani, co-founder, and COO of Sapio Analytics.
Founded by serial entrepreneurs Ashwin Srivastava, Shripal Jain, and Viral Vora, along with Somani, it has recently appointed ex-civil services officer Prashant Nikam as its Chairman. Nikam has previously been the Director of Police at the Ministry of External Affairs and took voluntary retirement to join the company.
