The company previously raised KRW 5 billion in January from Sui Generis Partners, Shinhan Venture Investment, Infobank, Kakao Ventures, and Shinhan Capital.
“In addition to the new products and services that BusinessCanvas is currently preparing to launch, the company’s achievements and confidence in researching and developing generative AI-related products that meet the needs of consumers is the reason for the additional investment,” said Hanjae Kim, CEO of Sui Generis Partners, who led the investment.
BusinessCanvas will use the funding to accelerate its global expansion through aggressive talent acquisition.

Last year, Typed was named the No. 1 “Product of the Day” by Product Hunt, a popular software ranking site, and became the first Korean SaaS startup to be nominated for the Golden Kitty Awards.
