GetSalesDone is, as we have reported earlier, an mobile-centric sales-support app. It integrates with Salesforce, making it the essential Salesforce app on the iPhone. The team at Dexplora, with Hampus Jakobsson, former TAT founder in the lead, has an impressive track record of intuitive and user-friendly user experience.
“The track record of the team behind Dexplora is extraordinary. After talking to some of their trial customers, we knew that they were on to something, and really look forward working with them.” says Tom Bradley, Partner at DN Capital.
How much equity the investors got in the deal the guys at Dexplora did not want to reveal, but according to Hampus the founding team still owns “a significant majority” of the shares.
“We’re thrilled to be supported by such premier investors in Creandum and DN Capital and our twelve angels. The capital will allow us to continue to develop our product offering and to prove that good design is as important for enterprise as for consumers.” Hampus commented on the deal.
The news has already been picked up by Tech Crunch and Wall Street Journal.
With this investment Dexplora and GetSalesDone is definitly one of the hottest startups in the region. We wish Hampus and the team the best of luck, and look forward to hear when the next milestone will be met!
