By helping customers increase individual rep performance and retain top talent across their teams, Highspot delivers a virtuous growth cycle that has helped dozens of customers enter the public markets and many publicly-traded businesses outperform expectations.
"Technologies that unlock human potential are foundational to our economic future," said Rashmi Gopinath, General Partner, B Capital. "Highspot's undeniable performance, coupled with the enthusiasm of their customer base, is a testament to how transformative their technology is for companies across industries and geographies. We believe Highspot's platform is an imperative for businesses aiming to drive sustainable growth."

The company will use the new funding to deepen investments across its business as it expands globally, accelerates product development and continues to create a thriving company culture.
