With new K1 partnership, TechnoMile will advance its best-in-class cloud platform, a proven driver of growth and operational efficiency for government contractors
MCLEAN, VA., August 3, 2021 — TechnoMile, a leading provider of innovative cloud solutions that empower companies to pursue, win and retain more business with the government from capture through contract, today announced that it secured a $20 million commitment from K1 Investment Management (“K1”), a leading investment firm focused on high-growth enterprise software companies. With the funding, TechnoMile plans to accelerate hiring across all areas of its business and continue to enhance its best-in-class cloud platform supporting the complex and evolving buying, selling and compliance needs of government contractors.
TechnoMile provides a cloud software platform that improves efficiency, delivers actionable insights, and mitigates risk throughout the entire capture-to-contract process. TechnoMile’s platform unites internal and external data sources and applies artificial intelligence to produce unique outcomes that help clients win more federal, state and local contracts – on average, boosting win rates by 11%. Post award, the platform delivers automation and machine learning to streamline contract administration, while easing the burden of maintaining compliance and audit-readiness throughout the contract lifecycle.
“Too often, we see government contractors trying to make do with mainstream CRM and contract management solutions that don’t contemplate the specialized requirements of doing business with the government. TechnoMile is on a mission to change this by providing technology that’s purpose-built to supporting our industry’s complex needs, leveraging data mining, AI and machine learning to give a competitive edge,” said Ashish Khot, Founder and CEO of TechnoMile. “Given the market’s demand, the timing was right to secure a funding relationship with K1, who believes in our vision of helping customers work smarter and drive growth through industry-specific platforms. Additionally, K1 has an impressive track record of helping growth-stage companies scale through maturation of their operational discipline.”

We’re now more efficient and effective in our qualification and pursuit of contract opportunities and have exceptional visibility into our pipeline and the financial impact of any changes. Our adoption of TechnoMile’s solution has been vital to accelerating CPT’s growth trajectory.”
