It’s crazy to think that in today’s remote world, a business phone is still associated with a landline or an antiquated phone system, or at best a virtual PBX. We are here to change that and bring the full power of a modern communication platform to the phone.

And today, we’re thrilled to announce our $14M Series A funding round, led by Craft Ventures, with participation from Y Combinator, Slow Ventures, Kindred Ventures, Garage Capital, Brianne Kimmel (Worklife VC), Jeff Morris Jr. (Chapter One VC), Todd Goldberg (Entrepreneur and Angel Investor), Rahul Vohra (Founder & CEO at Superhuman), and Elad Gil.

Welcome to our partners

We are incredibly excited to welcome David Sacks to our board. Daryna and I couldn’t have found a better partner for this journey.

David was the founding COO and product leader of PayPal. In 2008, he founded Yammer which became one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in history. We see a lot of similarities with Yammer’s product-led approach to growth and there are many lessons we can apply as we scale OpenPhone.

We’re also very grateful to our friends at Slow Ventures, Kindred Ventures, Garage Capital, 122 West VC, and others for their ongoing support, and for believing in us when we were a team of two with a nascent product. 🙂

Brianne, Jeff, Todd, Rahul, and Elad all share our passion for creating delightful products that change the way we work and live. We’re thrilled to team up with them and learn from their vast experience of building and growing world-class products.

What’s next for OpenPhone?

This funding will help us continue on our journey to give you the most delightful, reliable, and powerful business phone platform. We are here to be the best.

We’re looking forward to delivering many of the features you’ve been waiting for, including deep integrations with the tools you already use.

And of course, we’ll continue improving OpenPhone every week to keep making it better. That’s a part of our DNA and will never change.

As many of you know, we’re a small team and have been able to do a lot with very little. We’re excited about this next phase of growth as we build the phone of the future. If our mission sounds exciting to you and you’re up for a challenge, you should definitely apply. We’re hiring across the board and look forward to meeting you.

Thank you!

From the first days of OpenPhone, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to have amazing customers on our side. That’s you!

You’ve stuck with us through thick and thin, through bugs and imperfections, you’ve given us feedback, and shared us with your friends and colleagues. You’re the reason we wake up every day to keep building and improving.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn’t have gotten here without you and we will always cherish your support.

On behalf of the entire OpenPhone team, thanks for trusting us. 💜
