The fast-growing SaaS company, providing a must-have solution for any sales team to sell and close deals online, announces that they are bringing in Gaia Capital Partners in an extension round to their Series B.
At the end of 2020 the company raised a total of $20 million Series B funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners. GetAccept is now bringing in Gaia Capital Partners, an investor with extensive knowledge about the French market, to further accelerate the growth in France.
“We are thrilled to announce our investment in GetAccept. We have known the founders a long time and experienced the benefit of the product first hand. We immediately understood the company’s growth potential and are looking forward to join forces with Bessemer Venture Partners and the previous investors, DN Capital and Y Combinator, to support GetAccept’s amazing team in their next phase of growth.” said Alice Albizzati, Founding Partner of Gaia Capital Partners.
GetAccept has been present on the French market since 2019, with a local office in Marseille. Last year the French business of GetAccept grew by 130%. 2021 will be yet another year of acceleration as the company expects to triple its turnover in the French market. To support the high growth ambitions, GetAccept France is investing in both sales and marketing by recruiting key competences to the team.
"We are happy to have Gaia Capital Partners onboard as investors, bringing extensive knowledge about the French market. We believe this strategic partnership will help drive our European growth, and particularly further accelerate our already fast growing French expansion.
