Sana, a Stockholm, Sweden-based learning platform, raised an additional $28 million in Series B, bringing its total Series B funding to $62 million. 

The additional was led by global VC firm NEA, with participation from Workday Ventures, bringing Sana's total funding raised to $80 million, valuing the company at $250 million post-money.

The company plans to use the additional funding for product development and to expand its team of 70 employees.

The platform utilizes AI technology to create an index of companies' information, enabling employees to search, query, and perform various tasks such as creating training courses, summarizing information, and translating content.

“It's really a knowledge platform for the enterprise. Think about it as like the Library of Alexandria, all of the questions you might want answers to, all of the company's knowledge, everything is sort of captured in this platform,” founder and CEO Hellermark tells Forbes.

Sana acts as an interface between the licensed language models on one end and a company's information and data on the other. Sana's system ensures that a company's proprietary information remains private.
