Company Description

Every month sales teams around the world send billions of emails, make countless cold phone calls and “reach out” on LinkedIn to as many people as they can. But response rates are low so companies turn to software to scale their outreach - this increases output but not necessarily warm responses.

At Mesg.ai we believe there are better ways to engage with potential customers and we’re building technology to help sales teams timely communicate and add value to every conversation.

We're backed by Antler VC and just raised additional funding from some of the best angel investors in our industry. Over the coming months weʼre doubling down on improving the product and market traction to be ready for a Seed round in 2022.
