According to co-founder and CEO Danielle Morrill, “we’ve evolved a lot from our ‘Bloomberg for Startups’” origins and the startup is finding success with its sharpened focus.
Based in San Francisco, the three-year old Mattermark now has 50 employees, 500 customers drawn from the ranks of large corporations, private equity, and sales and marketing firms, and is generating $ 300,000 in monthly revenue, according to a company statement. The company will use the investment to build out its sales force and continue creating what it calls “an unkillable SaaS company.”
Mattermark’s service offers one-click integrations with a wide range of sales tools like LinkedIn and Salesforce, spreadsheets like Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets, and an API for software developers to write custom solutions that tie into the Mattermark platform. Mattermark’s customers use the service for lead discovery and qualification, detailed company information, as well as up to the minute data on a prospect’s brand footprint and employee headcount trends.
