Kavak, Mirakl, FLYR Labs, and more...

What is this? The Funding Letter is the most comprehensive new-financing newsletter & lead generation tool, built for salespeople, by salespeople. Daily Letters are sent hours before every other announcement newsletter, so you’re tipped off before your competitors’ outreach emails flood your decision-maker’s inbox. Learn more about the power of funding announcements here.

We provide the account details that matter most to you and your prospecting efforts. No journalism jargon, no marketing copy. Just the information you need to reduce hours of time in wasted busywork. We also highlight the best Sales Gigs in the business, for sellers looking toward their next challenge.
