Agiloft — the global standard in no-code contract and commerce lifecycle management — announced that it has raised $45 million in growth equity funding from FTV Capital. Prior to this funding round, the company bootstrapped and has been profitable.

Agiloft’s investment from FTV is the company’s first round of external funding and the funding will be used to build on its leadership position in the rapidly growing enterprise contract and commerce lifecycle management (CCLM) space as it accelerates its AI-based product development and expands its vertical and geographic market presence. The company’s no-code platform drives industry-leading configurability and automates complex enterprise workflows through an iterative design process at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional software.

In connection with the transaction, Agiloft appointed Eric Laughlin to the role of CEO, effective immediately. Laughlin most recently served as global leader of legal managed services at Ernst & Young, LLP where he managed the Pangea3 and Riverview Law teams and provided clients with technology and service solutions in the contracts, e-discovery, and compliance domains globally. 

Colin Earl, founder and former CEO of Agiloft, will remain with the company as chief technology officer. In this role, Earl will oversee product development, engineering, security and technology infrastructure and providing strategic guidance to the company.

In connection with the funding, FTV Capital’s Alex Mason and Abhay Puskoor will join Agiloft’s board of directors.
