Pickle lands $2.4M seed to build conversation intelligence for SMB sales teams
“We are excited to partner with Birch and the Pickle team,” said Jeff Danley, Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Peak Capital. “They have the right plan and vision to disrupt the Conversation Intelligence industry and provide tremendous value to organizations across the world.”
How we got here
Since founding Pickle in 2020 (seriously…we started when everyone was shutting down), our mission is to help people build more meaningful relationships through augmented intelligence.
The founding team put this concept into action in those unpredictable times. With the boom of remote work & Zoom meetings becoming a verb, SMB companies & teams found their day-to-day permanently altered.
The struggle to build/maintain strong relationships with customers and colleagues became real with constant distractions & juggling multiple tools just to prep before the meeting, take notes during, and follow up afterward.
We created a solution rooted in augmented intelligence.
Pickle captures, retains, & delivers insights from the millions of crucial data points happening in sales meetings on Zoom daily.
Providing sales leaders with relationship-focused data to make informed decisions & the visibility needed to be everywhere at once, without breaking their annual budget.
The platform helps sales reps focus on building lasting relationships; not frantically writing down every note, task, & next step during a meeting out of fear of something slipping through the cracks.
We make their Zoom meetings collaborative & actionable by recording, transcribing, and instantly sharing highlights across the team.
Since the official start, our rockstar team has quadrupled in size.
We were accepted into Y Combinator (W21) in January 2021. And most importantly, we’ve built a base of incredible companies who have become partners as much as customers; helping their teams maintain strong customer relationships while saving hours a day with AI-powered conversation intelligence.
How is Pickle different?
We’re different because our foundation is focused on (see: obsessed with) the end-user while benefiting sales leaders & the team as a whole.
Pickle enriches the experience of building lasting relationships via Zoom meetings for sales teams while connecting the entire organization through an AI-generated collaborative environment & capturing relationship-focused data; enabling every sales leader to make informed, data-driven decisions where they already live.
Where we’re going
This strategic seed round will help us continue building on our foundation and create a path for aggressive growth throughout 2022.
Our development, sales, & marketing teams will receive a boost with additional team members and resources.
Core integrations & functionality will continue to be refined. Making the customer experience better than ever.
If you or someone you know is looking to break into the tech industry and wants to help build something alongside an incredible team, we’d love to have them join the rocket ship!
We appreciate you!
Truly grateful for all the hard work our team has put in & and the culture they have built.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without the love & support from our amazing customers, investors, and the awesome Utah-based startup community.
To everyone who has helped us get to this moment and will continue to push us into the next phase — thank you!
