Crayon raises $3.35M

What does Crayon do?

Crayon, is an inspiration, market and insights intelligence for the best marketers in the world. This company tracks over 36 M pages across 4 M companies. They use AI for generating insights and helping marketers get leverage. The company believes that a lot of teams have a shocking data lack about what’s happening in their market, with customers, competitors and partners. This poor external visibility is very much different to the nuanced, rich data most executives enjoy about their own companies, often using renowned products such as the hubspot and salesforce, which changed the way companies managed campaign performance and lead flow. The company is doing the same thing which hubspot did for helping organizations manage their internal processes, helping companies understand and act on their competitor’s info. The company is executing on a huge chance and it is thrilled at partnering with them for building a remarkable company.
