By joining forces, 6sense will expand its engagement capabilities, allowing its customers to deliver personalized, relevant, and timely emails that convert qualified leads into opportunities. The acquisition comes alongside 6sense’s US$200 million Series E round which saw participation from investors such as MSD Partners, Blue Owl, SoftBank Vision Fund 2, Tiger Global, and Insight Partners. The amount of the acquisition is undisclosed.
“Joining forces with 6sense is a huge milestone towards our vision of transforming the way revenue teams create, manage, and convert pipeline to revenue,” said Gabriel Lim, CEO and Co-Founder of Saleswhale.
Saleswhale will continue to operate as an independent entity and Gabriel will be joining the company as a general manager. Under 6sense, Saleswhale will look to double its team and ramp up hiring for engineers, product designers, and product managers in Singapore and India. Saleswhale also plans to expand its business through product development and last-mile execution of its sales and marketing product.
MHV funded Saleswhale’s seed round and led its Series A round in 2019. Saleswhale is also the first Y Combinator-backed company in Singapore that has been acquired.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Saleswhale journey from its very early days. We witnessed the company growing to be an emerging leader in AI-driven revtech, navigating through rough waters in 2020, and emerging stronger on the other end. The acquisition by 6sense is recognition of the value of the Saleswhale product and team. We are excited for Gabriel and the team as they continue on their next phase of growth,” said Kuo-Yi Lim, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Monk’s Hill Ventures.
