"My career path has been rather meandering and includes a variety of experiences. I always thought that starting a company would be fun, but had no clue how it was actually done." -Matthew Volm
Not every startup story is glamourous. Matthew grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and was the first person in his family to go to college. He hopped on to multiple jobs, in multiple domains. He had no experience with how startups function. But he went on to create Tali, a now-defunct, VC backed SaaS tool - a timekeeping solution for lawyers powered by voice technology like Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.
But in 2.5 years, it shut down. This was just the beginning.
While shuttling between jobs, Matthew identified another problem - data is absorbed better with an interesting backstory. You can tell a story only once you narrow down your focus more on key highlights that the data speak. This is more difficult than one would assume. 👇
With all the toiled efforts of trying to find a tool that can simplify data for GTM and RevOps teams, Matthew Volm and Ganesh Sridharan set out to build Funnel IQ in 2020! Funnel IQ provides end-to-end funnel analytics and insights that keep your marketing, sales, and customer success teams working seamlessly together.
Funnel IQ has raised over $1.4M in 2 funding rounds and is one of the most looked-up tools by RevOps and GTM teams.
Today, Funnel IQ runs its community Rev-Ops Co-Op, which nurtures 3000+ members on Slack to be better RevOps professionals
