Messaging Service Intercom Nets $23M in Series B Funding
January 23, 2014
Intercom, a personal messaging service for businesses and their customers, has raised $23 million in Series B financing, bringing its total funding to over $30 million. The new funds come just half a year after the company raised its Series A round—an investment that garnered a $21.6 million valuation at the time.
Bessemer Venture Partners led the Series B round, with participation from Series A investor The Social+Capital Partnership. Bessemer partner Ethan Kurzweil will join Intercom's Board as part of the transaction. Intercom will use the majority of its new capital to invest aggressively in product. The company also plans to triple headcount in 2014 in its San Francisco and Dublin offices.
