MindTickle raises $40 Mn in Series C funding, makes changes in leadership
MindTickle, a leader in the landscape of Sales Readiness tech, has secured $40 Mn in Series C funding. Norwest Venture Partners is the new investors who has participated in the investment round along with existing ones such as Accel Partners, Canaan, Qualcomm Ventures LLC, NewView Capital etc.
Apart from securing additional funding, Scott Beechuk, partner at Norwest Venture Partners and former Vice President of Product Management at Salesforce Service Cloud, will be joining MindTickle’s Board of Directors.
At the end of the Series C funding round, the company has raised more than $81 Mn combined from all the funding rounds.
“We’re thrilled to have Scott join our board and welcome his insight and expertise as we embark on this new stage of rapid expansion,” said Krishna Gopal Depura, co-founder and CEO of MindTickle. “Sales and service organizations are facing a perfect storm on many fronts and company representatives that are not equipped to handle complex buyer needs and competitive challenges are being left behind.”
Most recently, MindTickle also hired Jeff Santelices as the Chief Revenue Officer and expanded the sales leadership team with the addition of Ahmed Hedayat and Dan Coady.
Hedayat will be fulfilling the role of Regional VP of Enterprise Sales, West and APAC and Coady will be the Regional VP of Enterprise Sales, East.
“Super excited to partner with Scott Beechuk and Norwest Venture Partners along with our existing venture partners--Canaan, Accel, Qualcomm Ventures, NewView Capital and NEA in our quest to build the world’s most comprehensive data-driven sales readiness platform to improve the capabilities and productivity of customer-facing teams,” said Krishna Gopal Depura co-founder and CEO of MindTickle, on a LinkedIn post.
