Pioneer in Conversational AI named one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S.
Drips announced it was named as one of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a recognition of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 27th year. Drips’ focus on empowering brands to capture intent and drive meaningful conversations sparked a growth rate of 308% during this period.
Drips’ Chief Executive Officer, Aaron Christopher “A.C.” Evans, credits this achievement to his team’s ability to automate its AI-powered conversational outreach platform and the significant growth investments secured in 2021 from Accel-KKR, the Blue Venture Fund, and a credit facility with Wells Fargo Capital Finance’s Technology Finance group.
