Demodesk, a Munich, Germany-based startup building an online meeting tool for inside sales and customer service teams, raised $2.3m in seed funding.
Backers included GFC, FundersClub, Y Combinator, Kleiner Perkins, Immad Akhund, Jude Gomila, Brad Flora, Hanno Renner (CEO of Personio) and Philipp Rösch-Schlanderer (CEO of eGym).
The company intends to use the funds to further build the product in close collaboration with customers and expand the team in both Munich and San Francisco.
Founded late 2017 by Alex Popp and Veronika Riederle, Demodesk is a YC-backed startup that provides an intelligent online meeting tool for inside sales and customer service teams.
The platform accelerates sales teams by automatically loading slides and websites to present, providing conversational guidance along sales playbooks and helping handle sales objections on the spot – all available from within the cloud-based conferencing tool. On top of providing real-time sales coaching, the software includes automated scheduling, deep CRM integration and in-depth meeting analytics. It also instantly shares mouse and keyboard control and collaboratively works on the virtual display for interactive onboarding and support.
Today, over 100 international customers are using Demodesk for their demos, closing calls and onboarding sessions.
Today, the company has offices in Munich and San Francisco and counts 12 people.
