Motive Raises $150 Million in Series F Funding
Motive, the leading Automated Operations Platform for the physical economy, announced that it raised $150 Million in additional funding at a $2.85 billion valuation, co-led by Insight Partners and Kleiner Perkins. Motive will use this additional capital to scale its investment in three key areas: accelerate its investment in AI, expand its product suite into spend management, and grow its enterprise capabilities.
With businesses facing inflationary pressure, the need for automation to improve safety and productivity while reducing costs is greater than ever. The impact AI-powered automation can have on physical operations is clear — in a recent independent study, the Motive AI Dashcam accurately detected 89% of unsafe driving behavior, helping businesses reduce accidents by up to 22%. Motive is scaling its machine learning and computer vision engineering teams, to help businesses automate an expanding set of operational workflows.

The Motive Card is the first corporate card natively integrated with a fleet management platform, giving businesses an all-in-one solution to automate their financial and physical operations. Motive will accelerate its investment in the Motive Card and related spend management tools to help businesses save on fuel and other expenses while controlling where and when their drivers and employees can spend.
Motive is rapidly accelerating growth in the enterprise segment with major new customer wins, including Rosendin, Select Energy, and Strike USA. Motive will continue to invest heavily in its engineering, professional services, and support teams to serve its expanding set of enterprise customers.
