LeadGenius has now raised more than $21 million in funding. The new round was led by Lumia Capital and past investor Sierra Ventures — Lumia’s Marin Gedalin is joining the company’s board of directors. Better Ventures, Bee Partners, Y Combinator, Kapor Capital, Initialized Capital, Fuel Capital, Scrum Ventures and Funders Club also participated.
“LeadGenius solves a problem that every company from start-up to large enterprise faces – making sales reps more efficient,” said Javelin’s Noah Doyle in the acquisition release.
Martin Gedalin of Lumia Capital joined the LeadGenius board of directors with the investment and Noah Doyle from Javelin Venture Partners will join as a board observer. The company has raised $20 million to date from investors such as 500 Startups, Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator President Sam Altman.
CEO Prayag Narula co-founded the Berkeley-based startup in 2011 to build a cloud-based sales acceleration software, taking the company through the Y Combinator class of Summer 2011.
