One Model Accelerates Global Growth with Newest Venture Financing Round

Austin, Texas, April 15, 2020 – One Model, globally recognized for its people analytics platform, announced its latest round of venture funding, which will accelerate growth in the United States and International markets.  This recent round includes a significant new investment from AV8 Ventures, with existing investors, The Geekdom Fund, and CEAS Investments continuing to participate.

One Model, which opened an additional data center in Sydney just last year, will utilize these funds to expand its presence in Australia, Asia-Pacific, and Europe, and to continue to innovate and develop the product and customer experience.
