For millions of teams working in dozens of industries, day-to-day business gets done on the phone.
So why—despite the huge leaps we’ve taken in design and usability—does most business phone software still look, feel, and act like it was born in the 90s?
Until OpenPhone, no one had pioneered shared phone numbers or team collaboration. No one had made it possible to create—or extend—a phone system in seconds. And no one offered beautiful, simple, and intuitive apps for every device.
Simply put: No one bothered to adapt to how teams and businesses work today.
Doing exactly that is how we secured our Series A.
And thanks to the trust of our over 20,000 customers, we’re excited to announce that we’ve just raised our Series B 🎉 .
Welcome to Tiger Global
Tiger Global is leading the round; we’re thankful for their faith in our vision and progress. We’d also like to welcome Jack Smith, Heston Williams, Rishi Talati of Hotplate, and Jonathon Barkl of AirGarage—OpenPhone customers who just became investors!
Of course, we’d never have gotten here without our Series A investors: Craft Ventures, Slow Ventures, Kindred Ventures, Garage Capital, and Script Capital. Or our earliest angels: Brianne, Jeff, Todd, Rahul, and Elad.
What’s next for OpenPhone?
We’ll use this funding to grow our team, spread the word, and keep building the best phone system for the future of work. That means even better team collaboration, more integrations with your favorite tools, and all-new features to help your team work smarter, respond faster, and stay happy.
We’ll also be living up to our name and making OpenPhone more…open. Our recent Webhooks release was a great first step, but there’s plenty more to come.
This is an enormous moment for us here at OpenPhone. Customers, OpenPholks, investors, and friends—we couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who helped us get here.
On behalf of Daryna and I, thanks for your continued trust and support. 💜
