About us

Who we are.

We're problem solvers, thinkers, and doers who believe advanced technology can help humans achieve their highest potential. We created technology that automatically curates unstructured information about companies to extract meaningful intelligence that go-to-market teams can act on. With this intelligence, we help companies identify their best customers, empower their sales forces at scale, and exceed growth expectations. In honor of our amazing customers, who've raved about how our solution has accelerated their pipeline coverage and increased their deal close factor, we've named our product CloseFactor.
