Qualtrics raises US$180 million in round of funding

Qualtrics, a provider of experience management software, has announced that it closed a US$180 million funding round at a US$2.5 billion valuation.

In addition, the company announced the appointment of Murray Demo, CFO of Atlassian, to its board of directors and as chair of its audit committee.

The US$180 million round was led by Insight Venture Partners and Accel, with participation from Sequoia Capital.
