#Asia SirionLabs Raises $12M Series B from Sequoia India, bolsters leadership


This round of financing also saw participation from QualGro ASEAN Fund and Canopy Ventures


SirionLabs, provider of innovative supplier management technology products, has recently closed a US$12.25 million in Series B financing, led by existing investor Sequoia India. In addition, Sanish Mondkar, former Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at SAP has joined its Board of Directors. This round of financing also saw participation from QualGro ASEAN Fund and Canopy Ventures. The leadership extension and new financing will be used to expand product capabilities and fuel market growth.

Sanish is an established leader and a product visionary in the procurement space. As Chief Product Officer at SAP, he was responsible globally for innovation strategy, technology and product delivery for all products in the procurement line of business. Earlier, as the Chief Product Officer at Ariba, he led all products and operations and built the Ariba Network from infancy to the world’s largest procurement business network. Sanish will work closely with Sirion’s product and engineering teams to further accelerate the pace of innovation and product delivery.

Governance of complex services suppliers (such as IT outsourcing, BPO etc.) continues to be a major challenge for large global organisations with significant outsourcing spend. As per research, the potential global market size for outsourcing governance solutions is estimated to be around US$10 billion, with only 0.28 per cent of the market potential currently being tapped.

“The lack of effective technology options for managing complex services engagements during the post-signature phase has been a painful challenge for most large corporations for a long time. Through its fundamentally different approach and an intelligent product architecture purpose-built for complex services engagements, Sirion represents the future of how Fortune 1000 organisations will manage their strategic services engagements”, said Sanish, further adding “I am excited to be at the forefront of this disruptive journey alongside the Sirion team.”

“The product market fit for Sirion has already been validated with several Fortune Global 1000 companies realising millions of hard dollar savings through effective performance and invoice validation”, said Ajay Agrawal, CEO, SirionLabs. “This new investment and Sanish’s expertise in guiding market leading products will enable us to embark on the next phase of innovation and exponential growth.”

Founded in 2012, SirionLabs has been named by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in Procurement and Sourcing Technology, recognised by IBM as India’s top B2B start-up and identified as a ‘provider to watch’ by Spend Matters.
