LOS ALTOS, Calif.

This round brings Accompani’s total funding to date to $20.6 million. Accompani will use the investment to expand its team and accelerate development of its eponymous relationship intelligence platform.

“With this round of funding, we are excited to bring in more top talent and continue scaling the platform,” said Amy Chang, CEO and co-founder of Accompani. “We’ve got our heads down, developing a product that will revolutionize relationship intelligence. Accompani provides everything you need to know about everyone who’s important to you, anytime you need it—in a way that’s both intuitive and delightful.”

Currently in alpha testing, Accompani’s iOS app and Web-based product benefits everyone from professionals beginning their careers to seasoned executives by helping them carefully curate and intelligently manage their network. Accompani integrates with the user’s email, contacts, social and professional feeds and calendars to provide real-time insights and surface relevant content about one’s network.

“We are huge fans of what Amy and the team are building at Accompani and we are thrilled to be part of their journey,” said Devdutt Yellurkar, general partner at CRV and board member of Accompani. “With so much emphasis placed on one’s professional relationships, network and personal brand, there is a pressing need for Accompani’s solution. This product is poised to forever change the way people glean value from their networks by bringing new levels of intelligence to relationship management.”

Accompani’s all-star founding team includes Chang, who led Google Analytics to achieve coverage on 70 percent of the entire Web while overseeing the team’s expansion from six members to 300; CTO Matthias Ruhl, an MIT CS PhD and large-scale systems design expert who helped push the Google Analytics backend beyond 900,000 requests per second; and CFO Ryan McDonough, who served as Marc Andreessen’s CFO at Ning and played an instrumental role in the company’s sale to Glam Media in 2011.

“Accompani combines an outstanding team with an intuitive product that solves a real need for professionals,” said Dave Goldberg, CEO of SurveyMonkey and board advisor to Accompani. “Accompani has enabled me to get more out of my network. It’s a richer, more engaging experience that brings me up to speed immediately, succinctly and contextually.
