Software as a Service (SaaS) company Postman is in advanced talks with New York-based investment fund Insight Partners to raise around $150 million at a valuation of $2 billion, two people in the know of the deal details said.
Postman is a collaboration platform for managing, developing and testing application programme interfaces (APIs). APIs are a set of tools for building applications used by software developers.
Postman, among the buzziest Indian SaaS companies, was valued at $350 million just a year ago, and if the deal goes through it will be one of the biggest jumps in valuation for an Indian startup, catapulting the company into the growing Indian SaaS unicorn club comprising Freshworks, Druva and Icertis.
“The company is in final talks to close new financing which is going to take its valuation to $2 billion, that is a massive bump up from its previous round..,” said a person in the know on condition of anonymity as the talks are private.
Postman and Insight Partners did not respond to ET’s detailed query till press time on Friday.
The company previously picked up $50 million in its Series B funding round, led by San Francisco-based venture capital investor Charles River Ventures in June 2019.
Venture capital fund Nexus Venture Partners cut Postman’s first institutional cheque of $1 million and then followed it up with a $7 million Series A investment.
