About this event

In a fireside chat with BG, we will learn about his journey growing Helpshift into a truly global company

It was in 2012 that the company, known today as Helpshift, came into being, and a seed round led by Nexus Venture Partners and True Ventures was done. In 2014, Helpshift raised a $10 million in Series A funding from Intel Capital. Nexus VP had in fact partnered with the team from during their ‘Infinitely Beta’ days as they believed that both Abhinash and Baishampayan were outliers and would be able to build a global product.

Helpshift claims to have connected with over 1.3 billion devices across the globe. Baishampayan adds that they are helping over 130 million end users every month. Some of the top clients of Helpshift include Virgin Media, Viacom, Flipboard, Zynga, AMC, and many others. Flipboard adds that with Helpshift they are able to provide a rather robust and proactive support experience to their 80 million monthly users
