Momentum, the global growth consultancy | May 20, 2022

Momentum, the global growth consultancy and pioneer of account-based marketing (ABM), has enhanced its learning and development programs with two new hires and an increased focus on training programs. Guy Phillips, Global Director of Learning & Development (L&D) has re-joined Momentum based in the UK, and Paige Johnson, CPTM, Head of L&D, will be leading global service development efforts from the US. These strategic hires allow Momentum to centralize the delivery of its world-class training programs. Since acquiring ITSMA in July 2021, Momentum has made strategic investments to enhance the learning experiences that ITSMA delivers, including ABM Certification and Mentoring. To date, thousands of B2B marketers have participated in ITSMA's rigorous ABM training, and the number of ITSMA certified ABM leaders will surpass 500 this summer. Guy Phillips is a mentor and educator who is passionate about spreading the ABM philosophy through learning and development. In his new role at Momentum, he will lead the development of new offerings, deliver custom and public training, and oversee a growing team. He brings more than 30 years of experience to this role, having led Consulting at Momentum from 2017-2021 before spending a year developing enterprise ABM approaches at Autodesk. Guy's career began with online and offline media companies, he has optimized the customer journey at a number of large, well-known companies, and he has worked for a number of brand-name agencies, including Momentum, where he developed audience engagement strategies for B2B technology companies. Paige Johnson will bring rigor and orchestration to Momentum's training offerings. She will focus on overall learning content and pathways as well as product development, own the logistics of public training courses, and facilitate custom ABM and marketing courses within the US. Paige is an expert in L&D who has spent the majority of her career in the healthcare and technology industries, where she facilitated organizational change, led L&D programs, and coached teams and individuals with an intentional focus on alignment and achievement of organizational goals as well as performance through talent activation. "I'm thrilled to have Guy and Paige on board to help us take our learning and development programs to the next level. The demand for training, particularly in ABM, continues to skyrocket, as organizations see real business value in partnering marketing more closely with sales to drive strategic relationships that help build the brand over the long-term and deliver sustainable results." Rob Leavitt, Senior Vice President, Advisory & Training Momentum is seeing increased demand for ABM training and certification, as organizations recognize the business opportunities of treating accounts as a market of one. The company is also expanding its L&D capacity to help organizations retain talent, enable their marketing teams, build the skills necessary to drive business growth in a digital environment. The new offerings added to the training portfolio will focus on ways to embed ABM within the entire organization and will enable B2B marketers to more clearly define their career progression.

6sense, Saleswhale, Blue Owl, MSD Partners | January 25, 2022

6sense, the leading platform for B2B organizations generating predictable revenue, today announced it has closed $200 million in a Series E funding round. The new funding more than doubles 6sense valuation to $5.2 billion just ten months after its $125 million Series D round. Its latest funding round is co-led by new investors Blue Owl and MSD Partners and includes additional new investors SoftBank Vision Fund 2, B Capital Group, Franklin Templeton, and Harmony Partners. Existing investors Insight Partners, Tiger Global, D1 Capital Partners, and Sapphire Ventures also participated in the round, bringing 6sense's total funding to $426 million. "Ten months ago we ignited the RevTech Revolution with a promise to provide the only AI-driven platform that unifies data, people, and processes to unlock predictable revenue potential. We've delivered on this promise and the market has spoken. Our growth continues to outpace every competitor in our category, and customers consistently rave about the exceptional results they see with 6sense," said Jason Zintak, CEO of 6sense.

We've delivered on this promise and the market has spoken. Our growth continues to outpace every competitor in our category, and customers consistently rave about the exceptional results they see with 6sense," said Jason Zintak, CEO of 6sense. "This investment adds fuel to our trajectory and gives us the ability to accelerate on our commitments. Our acquisition of Saleswhale is just one example of how we are transforming the way B2B organizations create, manage and convert pipeline to revenue." Dramatic shifts caused by the continuation of hybrid work in the B2B selling environment - with dispersed buying committees who often are anonymous - have accelerated the demand for a transformation in how sales, marketing, and customer success teams achieve predictable revenue growth. The 6sense platform analyzes data and behaviors to uncover accounts ready to buy and recommends the best action, channel, and messages that are most likely to connect with buyers. Companies using the 6sense platform on average experience 120% improvement in revenue effectiveness. Investments Add Fuel to Momentum Part of today's funding will be used to deliver the future of email for B2B marketing and sales teams. 6sense's acquisition of Saleswhale, an AI-driven email marketing platform, extends the native engagement channels available in the 6sense platform and builds on the company's RevTech Revolution promise to put the power of AI, big data, and machine learning behind every member of the revenue team. Additionally, today's funding will accelerate 6sense go-to-market strategies, such as: Further expansion in EMEA, Australia, and other international markets to support market demand Investing in people and technology to continue building against its aggressive product strategy Addressing demand from financial services, manufacturing, and health and life services verticals Executing on Vision, Delivering Results At the time of its Series D round in March 2021, 6sense made a commitment to provide its customers with the unified go-to-market platform for their entire revenue team. Since then, 6sense has released 52 major platform features, made two other acquisitions (Fortella and Slintel), and doubled its customer base and customer adoption. The incredible results customers experience demonstrates that 6sense has executed against its vision. Customers prioritizing accounts identified by 6sense's patented intent-based prediction model achieve, on average, 2X increase in deal size, 10% improvement in opportunity conversion rates and 25% reduction in deal-to-close time. "Today's B2B buyer demands a better, more relevant, buying experience. Those companies who provide it will win their business - today and tomorrow," said Ian Howells, Sage VP and Head of Marketing for Sage Intacct. "6sense is our competitive advantage in this area and continues to help us accelerate our growth by pushing the boundaries of innovation and the role of AI in the marketing and sales process." Massive Tailwinds This latest round of funding follows a banner year with run rate revenue exceeding $110 million and a net retention rate over 125%. 6sense has been recognized as a Leader in the Gartner 2022 Magic Quadrant for Account-Based Marketing Platforms Report; named a Leader by G2 across 11 2022 Winter Grid Reports; was named a Best Workplace by Inc. for the third consecutive year; named to the Forbes Cloud 100 list; named the #1 Top Private Cloud-Computing Companies to work for by Battery Ventures; and recognized as a Company for the Happiest Employees, Best Perks and Benefits, Best Culture, Best for Women and Best for Diversity based on employee feedback at Comparably. 6sense CEO Jason Zintak was recognized as the Best CEO by Glassdoor and Comparably this year.

We are excited to support 6sense in its continued mission to improve revenue operations," said Andy Lefkarites of Owl Rock (a division of Blue Owl).
