Show me the money: RevenueHero boosts sales pipelines as it raises $5.1M to scale globally


Companies are taking too long to engage sales leads or not responding at all leading to marketing spend wastage and a stuttering sales pipeline. Helping businesses take back control of their growth, sales pipeline acceleration platform RevenueHero, is today announcing a $5.1 million Pre-Series A funding round led by Stellaris Venture Partners with participation from existing investor Together Fund. The funds raised will be utilised to scale the business across the North American market and to strengthen the team. Founded in 2021, RevenueHero aims to help businesses achieve their revenue goals by significantly increasing their sales pipeline. Through instant lead qualification, enrichment, routing, and scheduling, the platform connects qualified buyers with the right sales representatives directly, offering a superior experience to buyers as well as increasing revenue for their customers. RevenueHero was founded by Sudharshan Karthik, Aaditya S, Charanyan Venkataraghavan, Hariharan R, Krupesh Muthukumar, and Pranav R. Today, 42% of the companies take at least 5 days to respond to a prospect who wants to buy from them. The remaining 58% don't even respond, resulting in wasted $11B of ad spend annually. “The sophistication, effort and money spent in getting a buyer's attention is coming to an anti-climatic end as soon as they request a demo. In most B2B companies today the first sales experience that prospects see is a faceless thank you for visiting us page. Presenting high-intent buyers with an experience that matches their urgency shouldn't be one that involves email ping-ponging and inbox-watching. We've seen this process at a scale where painfully long sales cycles lead to frustrating buying experiences that hurt the business bottom line. At RevenueHero, we make it easy for a customer to buy from a business by ensuring a frictionless experience throughout the B2B buyer journey.” said Sudharshan Karthik, co-founder and CEO of RevenueHero. Built with marketers and sales teams in mind, RevenueHero manages the complexities of scaled marketing and sales workflow in B2B companies. With RevenueHero, any B2B company can enable its prospects to book a meeting with the right sales rep directly from the website. RevenueHero has enabled businesses to increase their booked meetings by 50% and reduce junk meetings by 45%. “In 2007, the benchmark for responding to a prospect was less than 5 minutes. Today, we live in a world where we get a cab at a click of a button. 5 minutes is too little too late now. B2B buyers have way more information at their disposal to do their research, compare, and evaluate before they make a purchasing decision. When they finally come knocking on the door, they’ve mostly made up their mind and are only looking for answers to a few critical questions before completing the purchase. At this stage, winning the customer is really about how well and quickly can the company respond to the prospect" added Sudharshan Karthik. Alok Goyal, Partner, Stellaris Venture Partners, said, “We believe the workflow of lead conversion needs to be reimagined. Losing high-intent prospects can be a significant setback for businesses leading to a loss of opportunities, time, and money. With a deep understanding of the problem statement and razor-sharp focus on the B2B buyer journey, the team has built a solution that demonstrates value to its customers. We’re thrilled to back this passionate team and are excited about their journey ahead.” Manav Garg, Founding Partner, Together Fund said "We're thrilled to partner with the RevenueHero team as they continue to scale their platform globally and transform the B2B buyer journey. At Together Fund, we believe that a quick response time and a seamless buyer journey are critical to converting leads and winning customers. RevenueHero's platform excels in both areas, enabling businesses to connect qualified buyers with the right sales representatives and reducing junk meetings. We're excited about the journey ahead and look forward to supporting RevenueHero's continued growth and success.” About RevenueHero RevenueHero is a pipeline acceleration software, driving top B2B companies' growth today. Through instant qualification, scheduling, routing, and handoff, RevenueHero helps companies match their potential customers' buying intent with the urgency and experience that they deserve, instead of a bland boilerplate experience. Top marketing teams like Okendo, Inflection, Rocketlane, and Traefik use RevenueHero to increase qualified booked meetings without burning their budget. About Stellaris Venture Partners Stellaris is an early-stage tech-focused VC firm that partners with fearless founders who dream big, think differently, and have an unstoppable desire to challenge the status quo. The fund works with these teams at nascent stages to help transform their ideas into resilient businesses. Stellaris does so with a team of seasoned, diverse operators and entrepreneurs who bring significant experience in building businesses, and by providing access to some of the most successful founders and professionals in India and the US.

Democracy at risk in Turkish election

International Association of Political Consultants

Recent moves by Turkish President Reception Tayyip Erdogan to restrict social media in tomorrow’s Turkish election is a direct assault on the democratic process. According to Matt Klink, President of the International Association of Political Consultants (IAPC), “free access to information and ideas is at the heart of democracy. Denying citizens access to social media robs them of their ability to make informed decisions.” Under Erdogan, limits have been placed on social media in an effort to silence the voice of opposition parties. Klink pointed out, “The attempt by Erdogan and his cronies to prevent the voice of the people to be heard is deeply troubling in a country that already has placed severe restrictions on the press.” “What is especially concerning is the decision by Twitter to follow these restrictions,” said Klink. “An American company that claims to promote free speech should not be aiding and abetting a dictator in his efforts to subvert the democratic process. This has far reaching precedence for future elections.” “We all have a stake in ensuring that elections are run free and without interference, including restrictions on reporting and a free press. The IAPC and it’s members are committed to ensuring democratic elections free from any interference,” concluded Klink. Founded in 1968, the IAPC brings together members at its annual meeting to exchange views and information about political developments and campaign techniques.

Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Work: Preparing the Workforce for an AI-Driven Economy


A video accompanying this announcement is available at: Over the next 10 to 20 years, virtually every business and government agency will use Artificial Intelligence.

Shareholder Calls for Removal of Dan Schulman from Board at Verizon Annual Meeting

National Legal & Policy Center

Today, Paul Chesser, Director of the National Legal and Policy Center ’s Corporate Integrity Project, gave remarks at Verizon Communications Inc.’s annual meeting in Salt Lake City, to support a shareholder proposal the ethics group filed with the company. NLPC’s proposal would require the company to itemize and disclose the nature of ‘take-down requests’ it has received from the U.S. government. Revelations from “The Twitter Files,” about the aggressive efforts by the federal government to pressure social media and telecommunications companies to censor critics and political enemies of public officials, was part of the motivation for the proposal. During Chesser’s presentation, he also called for the removal of Dan Schulman, CEO of PayPal, from the Verizon board of directors. Schulman has presided over extensive censorship, de-platforming and punitive financial measures against customers during his tenure at PayPal. The full text of Chesser’s remarks is below: Verizon opposes our proposal for a report on government takedown requests because the Company says it already publishes so-called “ Transparency Reports,” and therefore the report we request isn’t necessary. But what Verizon calls a “Transparency Report,” is nothing of the sort. The report we seek asks for specific requests for censorship that Verizon has received from all branches of the United States government. All Verizon’s alleged “Transparency Reports” give you are numbers, and zero transparency. As we have seen from the revelations in the “ Twitter Files,” agencies controlled by the White House censored their critics via social and corporate media entities, at an unprecedented scale. For example, major tech companies including Verizon met monthly with the FBI and Homeland Security ahead of the 2020 election, to discuss how to handle so-called “election misinformation.” Platforms, including those controlled by Verizon, reportedly removed alleged “misinformation” at the request of the government. Yet there are no such disclosures of any censorship incidents in Verizon’s phony “Transparency Report.” But the type of report we request would include them. Verizon also engaged in election interference when it abruptly shut down a test run of one of Donald Trump’s most important voter-contact programs one weekend in July 2020, potentially costing the former president millions of dollars in donations. And in 2021, members of Congress who regulate the telecom industry wrote to Verizon urging them to drop One America News Network and other conservative-leaning news channels. Verizon ended its 17-year relationship with OANN, while the discredited, flailing CNN remains on the Company’s channel listings. If Verizon truly wanted to stop “misinformation,” they would dump CNN. Verizon, meanwhile, claims that, “Our respect for the right to freedom of expression of opinion is fundamental to our business.” Because of these examples I cited and others, we doubt that Verizon genuinely believes in freedom of speech. But if Verizon wants the public to believe that, one step they could take is to ask for the resignation of Dan Schulman from the Board of Directors. While he’s been CEO of PayPal, his company has implemented some of the most extreme cancel culture and censorship policies in Corporate America, including trying to impose a $2,500 fine of account holders who allegedly promote “misinformation.” PayPal also terminated, without warning, the account of one of the last remaining pro-Democracy groups in Hong Kong, before it fell to the communist Chinese government. I could cite many more examples of PayPal’s cancel culture actions during Mr. Schulman’s tenure. He has no business being on the board of a major media or telecom corporation – or any company for that matter. Thank you, and please vote FOR Item 5 on the proxy statement. END REMARKS NLPC has filed more than two dozen shareholder proposals this proxy season, and appeared at the annual meetings of Apple, Disney, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Berkshire Hathaway, and Boeing, and will similarly present resolutions at many other companies in the coming weeks. Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with an NLPC representative, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or Please visit Contact Details National Legal and Policy Center Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 Company Website

3 Small-Cap Tech Stocks That Appear Ready to Resume Their Rallies

Spotlight Growth/ASUR

Unearth hidden treasures in the high-risk, high-reward realm of small-cap stocks, where savvy investors can capitalize on market dips and ride the wave of growth, armed with diligent research and risk management strategies. Waiting for a pullback on quality small-cap stocks can be an attractive investment strategy for risk-tolerant investors seeking higher returns. Small-cap stocks have historically outperformed their larger peers over a long time horizon, offering higher growth potential in exchange for some additional risk. However, it is essential to focus on quality stocks with strong fundamentals, as they are more likely to withstand market fluctuations and deliver consistent returns in the long run. These under-the-radar companies can sometimes avoid much of the broader market chaos, making them appealing investment options during market dips. When investing in small-cap stocks, it is crucial to focus on research and make proper asset allocation decisions, as these stocks are highly volatile and susceptible to market risks. Investors should also consider their risk appetite before venturing into small-cap investments, as these stocks can experience significant declines during market downturns. Buying the dip in quality small-cap stocks can be a rewarding strategy for investors with a higher risk appetite and a long-term investment horizon. By focusing on strong fundamentals and proper asset allocation, investors can maximize their returns and grow their wealth over time while navigating the inherent risks associated with small-cap investments. With quality small-cap stocks in mind, here are three tech-focused companies that are worth researching further: 1. Asure Software (NASDAQ: ASUR) The Austin, Texas-based company provides cloud-based human capital management (HCM) software solutions geared towards small and medium-sized businesses. Asure’s suite of services aims to help businesses cut costs by streamlining back-office operations across human resources, payroll, tax, employee attendance, HR compliance, and more. Since the start of 2023, Asure has inked partnerships with notable companies such as H&R Block (NYSE: HRB) and Intuit's (NYSE: INTU) TurboTax to expand their offerings and features aimed at helping small business boost their employee retention and recruitment efforts. Asure Software saw impressive growth during 2022, which resulted in total revenue of $95.8 million or 26% year-over-year growth. Adjusted EBITDA for 2022 improved by $4.2 million to reach $11.8 million. The HCM provider’s 2022 results surpassed its own guidance by a significant margin and with SMBs continuing to look for ways to cut costs and get leaner, Asure’s products & services likely face another year ahead of strong demand and growth. The strong growth trend appears to be continuing into 2023 so far, after the company reported impressive Q1 2023 results with revenue of $33.1 million, a 36% increase from Q1 2022. Recurring revenue reached $28.0 million, up 22% from the previous year, and net income stood at $0.3 million, a $3.4 million improvement year-over-year. The company also reported a gross profit of $24.4 million, marking a 58% rise from Q1 2022. Following these strong results, Asure has updated its full year 2023 guidance, with expected revenue in the range of $111.0M - $113.0M, up from the previously estimated $105.0M - $107.0M. The company also provided Q2 2023 guidance, forecasting revenue between $25.0M - $26.0M, and an Adjusted EBITDA of $2.5M - $3.5M. According to, Institutional investors continue to provide Asure with strong support with institutional ownership of over 65%, which equates to a total value of around $182 million, as of this writing. Furthermore, disclosures from the period ended March 31, 2023, showed Asure gained Barclays PLC (NYSE: BCS), Ritholtz Wealth Management, Jump Financial, LLC, and others as new institutional shareholders. 2. C3 AI (NYSE: AI) Based out of Redwood City, CA, C3 AI describes itself as an enterprise AI app software company, which offers a comprehensive platform that allows businesses and organizations to develop, deploy and operate AI applications. C3 AI's platform features many industry-specific software-as-a-service (SaaS) AI apps that are geared toward helping enterprises begin to adopt new technologies into their operations. Artificial intelligence has been a major theme through the first half of 2023. The rise of OpenAI’s ChatGPT and the incredible capabilities of new AI programs have led to a surge in demand. C3 AI has been a beneficiary of this demand, as investors look to scoop up AI-related investments. Even the U.S. Department of Defense has partnered with C3 AI to develop enterprise AI solutions for the U.S. Air Force’s critical mission readiness. C3 AI is well-capitalized with a strong current ratio of 7.70, as a result of cash & equivalents holding of over $311 million and limited debt, as of January 2023. highlights C3 AI’s institutional ownership at nearly 42%, which has seen 80 new institutions add shares of C3 AI since the end of Q3 2022. 3. Vimeo (NASDAQ: VMEO) Vimeo is a New York-based video software solutions provider. Using a SaaS model, Vimeo allows subscribers to create, collaborate and deploy video within its platform. From OTT streaming and monetization capabilities to AI-based video creation and editing, Vimeo's platform provides a comprehensive solution for major corporations, small businesses, solopreneurs, schools, and more. In early May 2023, Vimeo reported first quarter 2023 financial results, which continued to demonstrate growth at the video software provider. While total revenue did see a slight 4% decrease y/y to $103.6 million, net losses saw a massive improvement of $25.9 million during the quarter to reach ($0.7 million). In addition, adjusted EBITDA improved by $13.6 million to reach $3.2 million during the first three months of 2023. Enterprise booking saw impressive growth of 62% y/y, thanks to new customers including BBC, UCLA, Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), Warner Brothers, and more. Over the past several months, Vimeo's share price has struggled but has continuously found support around the $3.25 level. Based on the financial results, Vimeo is seeing a growth shift to enterprises. This could help the company stabilize results, as enterprise customers tend to be more vested and longer-term focused than smaller organizations and individuals. If Vimeo can continue to build on its enterprise growth, its share price could see some improvement.
