ProsperWorks raised $87M

Service that offers a set of Google-oriented CRM tools is "#1 funded CRM company in the last decade"
26 September 2017   1974

ProsperWorks, a CRM service, received a $53M capital infusion through our Series C financing, led by Midas List Hall of Fame investor, Promod Haque of Norwest Venture Partners and GV (formerly Google Ventures).

Existing investors, such as True Ventures, Next World Capital, Storm Ventures and Industry Ventures continued their support. As a result, the total funding is $87M. This makes ProsperWorks the #1 funded CRM company founded in the last 10 years.

Now team is going to double its developers crew to accelerate the creation of solutions.

Helping YOU be more successful is what drives us at ProsperWorks. You told us that you hate your old CRM, that it’s a productivity suck, and that it doesn’t give you the data you need to make the right decisions for your business to prosper. If it’s any comfort, you’re not alone. Forrester found that 47% of CRMs fail because people don’t want to use them. It’s crazy to think that companies waste nearly $20B a year on failed CRM implementations.  And, considering that CRM drives one trillion dollars in sales, it’s a downright travesty for global productivity.
 

Jon Lee
CEO, ProsperWorks

According to the team, ProsperWorks' mission is to make CRM systems convenient and easy to use and to help the companies that use its system to get value out of its service. Main idea - deep integration with Google’s G Suite and to make the service look and feel like a Google product. Creators of ProsperWorks want to make sure that users don't feel the "switch" between different services.
