Accompany: Delivering rich, real-time intel on every person you’ll encounter at work


VC: Susan Lyne at BBG ventures

Relationship: No relation. VC just thinks it’s cool.

Funding: $40.6 million

What it does: Accompany, founded by former leader of Google Analytics Amy Chang, scours public info and compiles profiles on over 300 million people. It then uses AI to give you info on who’s most important to you at that moment.

Why it’s hot: “I’m obsessed with Accompany. It has totally changed my workday by delivering rich, real-time intel on every person I’ll see that day,” says Lyne. “I no longer spend cab rides madly googling the person I’m about to meet! I WISH I was an investor, but I’m relegated to superfan.”
