By Dan Anderson ● Apr 6, 2023

entrio – an Israel-based provider of a next-generation IT asset management platform for enterprises – announced it has raised $7.5 million in funding led by Communitas Capital Partners and they were joined by BNY Mellon, Vintage Investment Partners, Alicorn and Elisha Wiesel – former CIO of Goldman Sachs.

What does entrio do? entrio is an AI-driven IT asset management solution that helps enterprises in the financial industry manage and optimize their vendor stack – which on average can exceed 10,000 solutions and is valued at hundreds of millions of dollars per organization. And the startup’s unique cloud-based platform, designed in partnership with large tier-1 enterprises, empowers IT Governance and IT Sourcing teams with the visibility, searchability and intelligence to manage their vendor stack ultimately providing customers with the data intelligence and automation needed to drive efficiency, visibility, and reusability of their on-premise and cloud solutions, and actively helps to reduce costs.

What the funding will be used for? Considering the current bear market, large enterprises are seeking ways to cut expenses while remaining compliant and in control of their assets. This funding round will enable entrio to continue developing its technology and extend its reach to even more customers globally. With this funding round and the company’s growing tier-1 customer base, the startup is positioning itself among the top players in IT asset management. And entrio also recently announced its integration of gpt-3, becoming the first one in the ITAM space to embed these capabilities. Plus the company also plans to broaden its data coverage across additional tech assets to enable enterprises to gain a holistic view of their tech stacks.

entrio’s leadership team: entrio launched its platform in 2021 after the company pivoted from its earlier business model. And the company was founded by Avi Cohen (CEO), Gil Devora (CBO), and Moises Cohen (CPO). The company is chaired by Elisha Wiesel, the former CIO of Goldman Sachs.
