G2 Crowd takes home $4.3M in fresh funding, plans more expansion in 2017

Business software review platform G2 Crowd has raised a $4.3 million funding round, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. The company’s total funding now stands at nearly $15.6 million.

G2 Crowd aggregates reviews of enterprise software, providing enterprise customers a way to see if certain suites are right for their company before beginning the implementation process or even talking to a salesperson.

According to communications director Adam Beeson, the funding will be used to expand the company’s workforce.

“In 2016 G2 Crowd more than doubled our headcount and we collected more than three times as many product reviews than the previous year,” he said.

The funding, which Beeson called an “A-plus round,” came from existing investors like Pritzker Group Venture Capital, Chicago Ventures and Hyde Park Venture Partners, in addition to the company's co-founders.

G2 Crowd last raised money in July 2015, bringing in $7 million. They are currently hiring for roles in business development, customer success, research and social media.
