An Exciting New Chapter for Owler
Today, I’d like to share some exciting news from Owler. In the last month the Owler community has continued to grow at an even faster pace – we’re now more than 2.25 million active users strong!
As part of our continued investment in making the platform a valuable resource for every sales, marketing, finance, and competitive intelligence professional, we launched a completely redesigned web and email experience (see Lyft’s company profile). It is now easier than ever to access private company revenue estimates, employee counts, and other crucial business data on the companies you care about. And, as always, community members can contribute data and insights about the companies they work for and with. In fact, Owler users have now contributed 25 million unique insights to date. Our Enterprise API offerings continue to be the premier way to access the most accurate community sourced business information in existence.
We’re not slowing down anytime soon! We are on a great trajectory to continue to deliver innovative products that delight the Owler community. This is fueled by an infusion of funding from new investor, Morningstar founder and executive chairman Joe Mansueto and participation from existing investors Norwest Venture Partners and Trinity Ventures. This brings Owler’s total funding raised to over $26 million to date.
In conjunction with the new round of funding, I am honored and thrilled to be taking on a larger leadership role in Owler as CEO. When Jim Fowler and I co-founded Owler we had a vision of creating the best source of private company data, powered by a community of engaged business professionals. Previously Jim led the company as CEO, while I spent my time in product and operations management. Since the beginning, Jim and I have worked closely together and will continue to do so as he transitions into his new role as Executive Chairman.
As we enter this new chapter at Owler and continue to move forward with our founding vision of community growth and the most informative source of business information for every private business in the world, I am incredibly excited to be working with our amazing team and customers. I look forward to delivering superior products that meet the needs of our ever-growing user and customer base.
Onward and upward!
Tim Harsch, CEO
