Lusha Receives $40 Million in Private Equity Funding
As reported by VentureBeat, Lusha raised $40 million in capital from PSG. PSG partners with software companies that are ready to step on the accelerator when they have reached an inflection point through demonstrated product-market fit, rapid organic growth, and customer focus.
To date, PSG has made over 65 investments and 275 add-on acquisitions. PSG was incubated at Providence Equity Partners, a premier private equity investment firm with approximately $44 billion in aggregate capital commitments.
Top Lusha Competitors: Zoominfo and Swordfish AI
The closest Lusha alternatives are Zoominfo and Swordfish AI. All three companies are competitors in the same space, and all provide varying levels of personal and business contact information, including email addresses, direct telephone numbers, cell / mobile phone numbers, and other prospect contact information.
"This is great news for all of our companies in the B2B data industry. The fact that Wall Street took notice of Zoominfo with their successful $17B IPO in 2020, and now in 2021 with a $40M investment in Lusha from a prestigious private equity firm like PSG, this can only help benefit all of our companies," said Ben Argeband, Founder of Swordfish AI.
