The news is out! We’ve just announced our intention to acquire SparkPost, the world’s leading email sending and deliverability platform. We couldn’t be more excited to build the future of communication together! Read all about the acquisition below.
It's a big day at MessageBird ... we have not one but TWO acquisitions to announce! Welcome to the team, 24sessions and Hull. 🎉 Amsterdam-based 24sessions is the leading video-first engagement platform that connects companies with customers via seamless mobile video interactions — embedded directly onto a business’ website. The deal brings video into MessageBird’s already extensive platform, and together we are set to provide our customers with the world's most comprehensive and powerful omnichannel offering. Atlanta-based Hull.io is a Customer Data Platform (CDP) that allows a single source of truth to be synchronized across workflows. The Hull team will join the MessageBird CDP team to create an in-depth analytics layer between its channel offering and the workflow solutions it provides. To both teams: welcome to our nest! We look forward to working together to build the future of communications.

In case you missed it — 2020 has been a busy year for us here at MessageBird. From pioneering Omnichannel Platform as a Service (OPaaS) to moving to a Work Anywhere company, we are proud to share that we have closed a Series C funding round. We’d like to welcome our new investors (Spark Capital, Bonnier, Glynn Capital, LGT Lightstone, Longbow, Mousse Partners, New View Capital) to the MessageBird family and are thrilled to have Will Reed from Spark Capital join our board. We’d also like to thank Accel, Atomico, and Y-Combinator for their continued support. Here’s to many more milestone moments in our journey… and now we’ll get back to work!

Introducing “Work Anywhere” ... yes, you read that right! 💥 Our Birds are now empowered to choose where they want to work — be it at a MessageBird hub or remotely from ANY location! We’re excited to pioneer this concept and focus more on productivity and outcomes instead of clock hours in the office. More to come! #MessageBird #getshitdone #jointhenest
