Aligned, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based company developing the first B2B buyer-seller network, completed a $5.8 million seed funding.
The round was led by Hetz Ventures and NFX, with participation from global strategic sales leaders and angel investors.
Aligned will use the funds to scale its team to keep up with demand, embed further innovative deal analytics and AI into its platform, and help build out the first professional, global network of B2B sellers and buyers.
“B2B buying and selling is a chaotic process involving numerous stakeholders and often months of back and forth, with many blind spots and moving parts to control,” said Gal Aga, CEO and co-founder of Aligned. “These modern times present a game-changing opportunity to do what companies like Slack and Zoom did to the way we connect, which in the case of Aligned, is to make buying and selling more impactful for both sides, even enjoyable. We’re passionate about leading this change to make the B2B buying and selling experience frictionless, collaborative, and streamlined.”
Aligned is developing a network to streamline seller-buyer interactions and foster more effective collaboration across all stages of a deal's life cycle. With its collaborative workspaces and impending B2B buyer-seller network, the company aims to re-streamline the decades-old sales workflows.
