Gong Raises $65M Led By Sequoia Capital
I am excited to update that we have secured an additional $65M in funding. The round was led by Sequoia Capital bringing our total capital raised to $134M.
Sequoia is one of Silicon Valley’s most enduring venture capital firms, investing in legendary companies including Apple and Google and breakthrough companies like Dropbox and Stripe. We are honored to be welcomed into the fold of what Sequoia has termed “Dentmakers.”
I am also thrilled to welcome Carl Eschenbach to our board. His operating experiences with VMware and Inktomi and investing experiences with companies like Zoom, Palo Alto Networks, and Snowflake will be invaluable for Gong. In his own words, Carl sees Gong as the ‘next big evolution after CRM.’ Talk about making a dent.
