Valor Leads Seed Round in Saile: AI Prospecting Robots for Sales Leaders

November 1st, 2022

KPMG noted Saile as an anchor point in the history of sales because of its patent-pending SaaS robots.

Kansas City, MO – November, 2022 – VALOR VENTURES FUND 2 leads the seed round in, a SaaS AI solution that automates the entire prospecting life cycle with Sailebots that perform Digital Labor sales tasks for mid-market and global enterprise businesses. Saile’s Fortune 500 customers include Schneider Electric, LPL Financial Services, Finning Caterpillar, JLL Commercial Real Estate, and BrandSafway group. Valor Partner Jean-luc Van Hulst joins the board. Participating investors include KCRise.

Valor founder and managing partner Lisa Calhoun, says, “I’ve been in sales and marketing automation for 20 years. Nick and Clive automate one of the toughest frontiers major companies have today–prospecting.” Saile is unique in that its AI is customized to the individual sales approaches of enterprise sales executives–it’s not a “one size fits all” strategy like most other implementations of AI to sales. Saile turns millions of individualized potential customer interactions into a company-specific intelligence layer. Saile helps sales leaders double and triple their teams’ effectiveness. In today’s tight talent market, this is taking off.

Saile is cofounded by seasoned enterprise sales veteran Nick Smith and technologist Clive Cadogan, MsC. Nick spent the majority of his career in senior sales roles at companies like iHeartRadio, CBS Radio, and CBS News. Clive previously worked in AI and ML in several scaling companies like Udacity, where he focused on solving bold problems. Both experienced sales enablement solutions and AI applications aiming to eliminate manual sales tasks, but saw none of them automated the entire, tedious prospecting lifecycle from research and discovery to delivery of revenue opportunities.

“Every company wants more of the great salespeople they already have. Where most have tried to “sales-enable” their way through an obstacle course of platforms and dashboards, we’re giving them what they really want – their best reps, multiplied, with personality-driven AI that perform digital sales tasks on their behalf. Essentially, if you really wish you had three more of your best salespeople, triple their prospecting power with Saile,” says Nick. Get a demo of Saile HERE.
