Fremont, CA: AI startup offering Natural Language Processing and RPA service, DataGrand, secured USD 38 million in a Series B+ funding round led by Shenzhen Capital Group, with participation from existing investors SAIF Partners, Z Capital, and Mount Morning Capital managed by CBC Capital. The Chinese AI firm is aiming to scale up its business with the help of the capital raised from this round.
"From the perspective of Linguistics, Chinese grammar is more complex and flexible compared with English, which brings great difficulty and challenge to Chinese NLP not only in methods but also in product implementation. With solid Chinese NLP technology, DataGrand has launched a number of automatic text processing products. At present, our systems can smoothly process documents both in Chinese and English. And this has gained a lot of praise in the industry," said Dr. Chen Yunwen, Founder and CEO of DataGrand.
DataGrand was founded in 2015 with a commitment to the development and application of Natural Language Processing (NLP), Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Knowledge Graph, and other AI technologies. The company provides its customers with multiple text automation solutions, such as documentation review, intelligent recommendation, intelligent search, knowledge mapping, and more.
