The Bengaluru-based company has operations in the US, UK, Singapore, Australia and has secured $52.5 million Series-A funding. Its investors include JPMorgan Private Equity Group and Intel Capital. “As traditional businesses are gradually looking to invest further in the direction of Digital Transformation, we at Happiest Minds are developing revenue-enhancing models for our customers. Multiple offerings focused on Agile Infrastructure and modern Enterprise Solutions for Digital Transformation shall be the overarching strategy of Happiest Minds,” said Sashi Kumar, CEO & MD of Happiest Minds.
