Accompany Lands $20 Million in Funding

 

LOS ALTOS, CA — Accompany, which developed a virtual chief of staff app, has raised $20 million in funding led by Ignition Partners with participation from Charles River Ventures.

This latest round brings Accompany’s total funding to date to $40.6 million. Accompany, which launched in beta in August, will use the investment for the continued development of its data platform and to expand its teams in Los Altos and Portland, OR.

“Since launch, we’ve been focused on the data platform and making sure our beta users have the best possible experience,” said Amy Chang, CEO at Accompany. “As we scale and expand, so too must the team, so we’re really excited about the prospect of more talented people joining Accompany.”

Available on iOS, web, and as a Gmail extension, Accompany benefits professionals of every level by acting as a chief of staff, curating and intelligently managing their network and relationships. Accompany integrates with the user’s email, contacts, calendars, and social and professional feeds, and scours millions of publicly available sources to provide detailed briefings on meeting participants, real-time news alerts about contacts and companies, and comprehensive company profiles.

“Amy and her team are building a service that delivers to me a cheat sheet for my daily work life,” said Nick Sturiale, Managing Partner at Ignition Partners. “Accompany makes me smarter and saves me from countless brain freeze moments, which is simply awesome!”
