Insight Partners invests $100+ Million into JedoxPORTFOLIO NEWS
Jedox, the award-winning provider of Enterprise Performance Management solutions for Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) globally, announced today a $100+ million investment. Jedox will benefit from the majority of the funds which are provided by global venture capital and private equity firm Insight Partners alongside existing investors eCAPITAL, Iris Capital and Wecken & Cie. Part of the transaction volume will go to some of Jedox’ long-term investors and supporters, among them eCAPITAL with an earlier fund, having taken the opportunity to realize substantial returns. The financing round comes as Jedox experiences accelerating global adoption of its market-leading cloud solution for financial leaders.
The new round will enable Jedox to significantly accelerate customer growth and its global footprint while enhancing its robust platform for cross-departmental integrated business planning, reporting, and analysis. Specifically, the funding will be used to scale the Jedox product innovation team, increase investment in customer success, and continue to support clients across all major geographies. In addition, 2021 marks the launch of Jedox’ vertical-specific solutions, leveraging Jedox’ vibrant partner ecosystem and strategic partnerships to expand its scope beyond the office of the CFO to become a truly cross-functional Extended Planning and Analytics (xP&A) platform touching every domain.

Jedox’ modern cloud-based tools for scenario planning, forecasting, and managing future value creation enable our customers to move even faster and outperform the competition. Insight Partners’ investment will further enhance our unique EPM platform and momentum in the marketplace, as well as allow us to benefit from the expertise of a leading global investment partner.
