Intelligent document processing company Staple raises seed funding led by Delivery Hero Ventures

SINGAPORE, June 22nd 2022 — Staple, a Singapore-based company which automates data processing from documents and workflows using powerful AI, has raised seed funding from Delivery Hero Ventures.

The fast-growing software-as-a-service (SaaS) company, co-founded by Ben Stein and Josh Kettlewell, enables enterprises to interpret, capture and reconcile data in a structured manner, in any format, type or language, and helps companies save substantial amounts of time and resources.

Staple’s solutions currently serve a wide range of enterprise customers, including global professional services firms, financial institutions, industrials and online grocery retailers.

Staple intends to use the funding to build its sales, marketing, and engineering teams to support the company’s rapid growth plans.

Ben Stein, co-founder and CEO of Staple commented “Having spent several years in the financial and professional services industries, I saw first-hand how companies deal with large volumes of unstructured data when communicating with other organizations. These documents come in the form of transactional documents, tax filings, bank statements or proof of addresses, among others. The challenge worsens for MNCs that transact across borders and in different languages. Josh and I founded Staple to tackle this exact problem: our solution helps companies to interpret and capture this data in a structured manner, allowing employees to focus on higher value, higher impact tasks. With the support of Delivery Hero Ventures, we are excited to grow the Staple team and bring our solution to more organizations globally.”

Alex Browne, Associate at Delivery Hero Ventures commented, “We are very excited to support Ben and Josh in their ambitions to build Staple into a best-in-class software solution, to solve the first mile of data processing for a variety of corporate and government use cases. Delivery Hero’s network of dark grocery stores processes large volumes of invoices, purchase orders and other unstructured data. We quickly saw the opportunity for Staple’s solution to drive greater efficiencies for our business, and to do the same for many other enterprises.”
