Chili Piper plans to bring swelteringly-fast calendaring to Fortune 500 companies worldwide
Chili Piper, the most advanced routing and scheduling solution for revenue teams, announced it has raised a $33 million ‘Series Spicy’ led by Tiger Global with participation from existing investors Base10 Partners and Gradient Ventures, Google’s AI-focused venture capital fund. This brings the company’s total financing to $54 million, mostly raised within the last nine months.
‘We’re excited to partner with Tiger Global, one of the most successful and prolific software investors in the world’, said Nicolas Vandenberghe, CEO and co-founder of Chili Piper. ‘With hundreds of customers and tens of thousands of reps using Chili Piper adding spice to their calendaring efforts daily, we thought, why not raise $33 million to ensure we up our Scoville game?’
The company plans to invest the capital raised in the Series Spicy to accelerate product development and address the increasing needs of customers across sales, marketing, and customer success.
‘We realised with some extra capital, we could help the company reach ghost pepper status sooner rather than later. We’re thrilled to back Chili Piper’, said John Curtius, Partner at Tiger Global.
TJ Nahigian, the Managing Partner at Base10 Partners, added, ‘We originally invested in Chili Piper because we knew customers needed ways to add fire to how they connected with inbound leads. We’ve been absolutely blown away with the progress over the past year, 2020 has been a step-change for this company as business went remote!’
‘We’re proud to have so many customers scheduling meetings and optimising their calendars with Chili Piper’s Instant Booker. We know some people can’t handle how hot our platform is, but believe me, once you use the software as pungent as this, you’ll never go back’, said Alina Vandenberghe, CPO, and Co-founder of Chili Piper.
‘There are various gradations of the Scoville scale, said Darian Shirazi, General Partner at Gradient Ventures. ‘We’re excited to see Chili Piper grow and reach the next level of scale. With this financing, the company has the resources to expand globally and bring meeting automation that is a high performance, or as pepperists would say: high in capsaicin.’
