WalkMe’s Ambitious Vision Earns $11M in Funding, Led by Scale Venture Partners
We’re happy to share that we have closed a $11 million funding round, led by Scale Venture Partners (an investor in Box, DocuSign, ExactTarget, Hubspot and others) and with the continued participation of our existing investors: Mangrove Capital Partners, Gemini Israel Ventures and Giza Venture Capital. We are certain that Scale Venture Partners, along with our existing investors, will empower WalkMe™ to build upon our huge momentum to scale our business and to disrupt industries and to grow into a long-term company that matters. Our Vision We at WalkMe recognize that websites and software are overly complicated and frustrating. We decided that Enough is Enough! No more confusion, No more long repetitive training, No more frequent hesitation and errors, No more frustration, No more help desk assistance requests, No more time wasted! Remember life before GPS technology? Fumbling with big map books or squinting at tiny MapQuest printouts, while trying to stay in the your lane and catch your turn? We dared to imagine a smooth online user experience in which everyone knew what to do. Our cloud-based Enterprise-Class Guidance and Engagement Platform enables any business to simplify the online experience and eliminate user confusion. Think of it like a GPS, but instead of giving driving directions, WalkMe™ guides users every step of the way to successfully complete their online tasks. WalkMe™ brings value to enterprises by increasing sales and conversion rates, boosting UX, reducing support costs, and improving employee productivity. Upcoming Plans The financing allows us to more rapidly: – Hire the best talent. In the past 12 months, the company has more than doubled its staff and it will continue to rapidly grow and hire skilled employees that share in the company’s vision and passion. (send CV’s to firstname.lastname@example.org) – Further accelerate operational momentum and customer acquisition. In the past several months, enterprises from a wide range of verticals including Adobe, Amazon Web Services, Citrix, Stanley Black&Decker, US Foods, Bank of Montreal and Kimberly-Clark have chosen WalkMe to simplify and improve their online user experience. – Share our vision with more people. We are planning to demonstrate our platform at more than 15 conferences this year. A final Word About Scale Venture Partners We are thrilled to work closely with them, because they were excited, not intimidated, by our ambitious vision of changing the way people use software and websites.
