$17 Million in New Funding to Put More Salespeople in the Driver’s Seat

pipedrive-office

We are proud to announce that Pipedrive has closed a $17 million round of funding.

Atomico, the lead investor in the round, is a new relationship for us and we’re really looking forward to tapping into their expertise in building companies that operate on a global scale.

We’re equally glad to see our long-time backers Bessemer Venture Partners and Rembrandt Ventures continue believing in us and participate in this round.

As you might expect, the fresh funding means different things to different people — all positive.

The strong backing gives us opportunities to accelerate the pace of our product development efforts, increase investment in infrastructure, add people to our team and — last but not least — grow our partner ecosystem.

For our customers, this means you may see new features or integrations sooner and many already-existing capabilities improved. You can also expect to see the number of native Pipedrive integrations grow, so you’ll be able to make your various workflows seamless and save more time.

As a developer or integration partner, you can expect even more support from us and look forward to a larger number of customers to offer your software integration to. (See the list of 50+ integrations offered by our partners today).

As someone looking for their next career challenge, now is the perfect time to join us. We’re big enough to provide the structure to do your best work and small enough to get real work done. We’re hiring for various engineering, support, marketing, product management and admin positions in our offices in the U.S. and Estonia.

And finally, as a salesperson, you can expect the transformation of the whole CRM software industry to happen sooner rather than later.

CRM software was originally meant for managers to control salespeople, not to help and collaborate with them; for the suits to pull reports, not to facilitate completing sales actions and closing deals. But the industry is rapidly changing and our news today will certainly play a part in accelerating this evolution.

Actions speak louder than words, so I hope you don’t mind me keeping this post short and letting our work — past and future — speak for itself.
Happy closing!

      Thanks for your kind words!

    Please develop the email inbox integration within the email system itself. And an easy follow up or waiting on system for sent emails. I find this hard to manage. Thanks

      Hi Ben,

      Will have a look into it 🙂

    There is not system yet for SDR + Sales, usually end with integrating yesware/outreach.io/tautapp with CRMs, if you can build that component natively to Pipedrive, i guess it’ll be loved.

      Thanks for your feedback!
      We are an ambitious company and the product will continue evolving.

    Please Please add automatic tasks when entering a stage. This is a fundamental feature for a pipeline based crm — systematization!

    When a deal goes to “proposal” stage, why can’t an auto task be set up assigned to a colleague to create a proposal? Zapier is way too convoluted to do this at scale with multiple pipelines.

    • Christopher

      Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your suggestion. It isn’t on the roadmap right now but would be a great feature to have I’m sure 🙂

      • Christopher,

        Is there a site that shows what PipeDrive has on the “Roadmap”? I would like to read about it, before we make a decision on the product. Thank you!!

        • Christopher

          Hi,

          We don’t make our roadmap public but our support can give you a vague overview of things coming up.

  • We have evaluated nine (9) CRM’s over the past few months and have used the top companies in the past. The simplicity of the layout and features that “really” matter is what has kept PipeDrive in the mix. I appreciate your approach and receiving the additional funding will no-doubt strengthen the product. I look forward to see the great changes ahead. Congratulations on the $17MM win!
