Paris based Pigment announced a $145 million series D funding round, led by ICONIQ Growth. Sandberg Bernthal Venture Partners, as well as several other existing investors including IVP, Meritech, Greenoaks and Felix Capital have also participated in the round.

Pigment was started with one problem in mind: to simplify and inform how business teams plan and make decisions in an increasingly complex environment. Complexity kills efficiency, and it’s everywhere in modern business: constantly shifting macro-conditions that add uncertainty to decision making, disjointed tech solutions, vast volumes of unmanageable data, and organizational silos all play a role.

Indeed, two-thirds of business leaders say their organizations are overly complex, and as a result Pigment’s own research revealed that 89% of finance leaders are making decisions every month based on inaccurate or incomplete data.
