News Sep 19, 2022

PRESS RELEASE. HELSINKI & CHICAGO– September 19, 2022

We are thrilled to announce we have raised $44 million in growth investment from Susquehanna Growth Equity (“SGE”). SGE is an entrepreneur-centric growth equity firm exclusively focused on software and information services. This partnership marks Sievo’s first institutional investment since our founding in 2003. In conjunction with the transaction, Ben Weinberg and Aneesha Raghunathan from SGE will join Sievo's Board of Directors. 

Sievo is the leading procurement analytics SaaS provider for data-driven enterprises. Sievo’s mission is to help leading businesses navigate real-world supply chain, economic, and environmental events while driving business value through best-of-breed spend management software and world-class services. Our SaaS procurement analytics solutions include Spend Analysis, Savings Lifecycle Management, Materials Forecasting, and ESG Analytics. Our solutions enable large enterprises to create and maintain a procurement information hub that efficiently analyzes complex, often disparate external and internal data sets. Sievo procurement information hub informs better purchasing decisions and overall procurement operations.  

“In just the last few years, there have been substantial supply chain shocks emerging from several events such as Covid 19, the conflict in Ukraine, an increasing focus on ESG-centric business practices, and the recent rise of inflation. Companies cannot predict every event – but the companies that are quickest and most strategic to react and make the right decisions will have the competitive advantage against slower-moving peers. The dire need among enterprises for faster and deeper data and analytics could not be more apparent amid the current environment,” Sammeli Sammalkorpi, CEO and Co-Founder of Sievo says. 

Through our partnership with SGE, Sievo will grow its U.S. presence from its Chicago office, with plans to scale both our team and client base within the US market. We will also continue to focus on building out our strong position in the European market. Additionally, we will scale our product portfolio and roll out new services to ensure clients continue to have access to the fastest and most reliable data in all aspects of their procurement, covering spending, savings, risk, and sustainability business decisions.  

“We are thrilled to be partnering with SGE at this pivotal time for Sievo and look forward to collaborating closely with their team to execute our continued vision of helping businesses build more sustainable partnerships with their suppliers,” Sammalkorpi adds.

“Sievo enables large enterprises to understand and influence their procurement cost base, helping them manage new business realities evolving by the day. We are pleased to partner with Sievo at this key inflection point in its growth trajectory, and work to capture this attractive opportunity as they seek to become the partner of choice to leading enterprises across the U.S. and other global markets,” says Ben Weinberg, Managing Director at Susquehanna Growth Equity.
