Tiago Paiva and Cristina Fonesca founded Talkdesk in 2011 when very few startups were infiltrating the $20B+ call center market. TalkDesk set out to empower companies to connect with their customers, understand their needs, and easily set up call centers to address demand. Two years later, TalkDesk joined the Orange Fab Program and shared an international spotlight with Stephane Richard, Chief Executive Officer of Orange, at the 2013 Hello Show.

Where are they now?  Raised a $21M Series A round - that’s where. 

Recently featured in the San Francisco Business Times, the TalkDesk team has dominated the industry. They nailed a top spot in Silicon Valley Business Journal's Q4 biggest VC fundings, largest valuation jumps in Bay Area and with lead investors like Salesforce Ventures, 500 Startups, Draper Fisher Jurvetson and Storm Ventures, it’s just a matter of time before they take over the world. 

Want to meet TalkDesk in person? They’re serving a little slice of something special next week (5/17) at the OpenTalk Conference in San Francisco. Check it out.
