Video production and editing platform InVideo is in talks to raise a Series B round from new and existing investors, said three people aware of the details of the transaction. The fresh proceeds will come for the San Francisco-based firm just after seven months since their last round.
“A new investor would spearhead InVideo’s $40 million new financing round whereas existing investors including Tiger Global, Sequoia and RTP Global would also participate,” said one of the sources, requesting anonymity as discussions are private.
If the round goes through, the two-year-old firm will end up raising a total of $57.5 million across two institutional rounds. It had raised $15 million Series A in October and a $2.5 million seed round led by Surge and several angels.
