causaLens raises $45m in Series A funding to scale human-centered AI

Darko Matovski, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, causaLens

causaLens, the London deep tech company delivering the future of AI, has raised a $45m Series A round. causaLens is the pioneer of Causal AI – the only AI technology quantifying cause-and-effect relationships to reason in a manner that is trustworthy, explainable, and fair.

Causal AI represents a giant leap ahead of current correlation-based AI technologies, which blindly extrapolate historical data and are unable to ask counterfactual questions — the ‘what ifs’ at the core of human imagination and creativity.

causaLens’s no-code platform delivers far more accurate and reliable results, and allows humans and machines to work together for the first time.

It is trusted by decision makers across finance, industry, technology, and government.

The round was led by Dorilton Ventures and Molten Ventures, with sizable participation from existing investors Generation Ventures and IQ Capital.

GP Bullhound and others also joined the round, which was oversubscribed. Daniel Freeman of Dorilton Ventures has joined causaLens’s board of directors.

causaLens raring to go

Since re-emerging in January 2021, causaLens has seen annual revenue grow by more than 500%, winning top clients like Tier1 banks, hedge funds, and Fortune 500 companies.

After considering more than 50,000 CVs, causaLens has the strongest group of AI scientists ever assembled to implement Causal AI. The new funding will allow causaLens to double its team in 2022 while investing aggressively to maintain its competitive technology lead.

causaLens CEO and co-founder, Darko Matovski, made these remarks.

“Our vision is to create a world in which humans can trust machines with the greatest challenges in the economy, society, and healthcare. Our customers are seeing transformative results with our platform and we now have the resources to bring our platform to everyone.”

causaLens delivers in different sectors

causaLens is delivering transformation across a range of sectors. In financial services, the insurer and asset manager Aviva uses the company’s platform to improve portfolio returns.

Pension funds, including TIAA, with $1Trillion under management, also trust causaLens.

Beyond financial services, causaLens’ platform has helped mitigate supply chain disruptions, navigate public health crises and discover novel biomarkers for cancer.

Supported by $45m in the first close of this Series A round, causaLens is now able to help organizations across more sectors to create human-centered AI systems they can fully trust.
