    About Attentive:

Other investors in Attentive include Bain Capital Ventures, Sequoia, IVP.

    We work with 4,000+ of the most innovative brands like Coach, Urban Outfitters, CB2, Pura Vida, Lulus, and Jack in the Box. Attentive was founded in 2016 by the co-founders of TapCommerce, a mobile marketing platform that was acquired by Twitter in 2014.

    Privy, a subsidiary of Attentive, is the email marketing platform for Shopify & Wix stores that need the tools & coaching to grow from $0 to $1 million in sales. We're the #1 reviewed sales app in the Shopify app store, and to date 500,000+ small e-commerce brands around the world use Privy-- and we've helped them generate $6 billion in sales so far. Our mission is to provide the tools, education, and support small ecommerce brands need to grow their online stores and build thriving businesses.

    We were named an Inc. 5000 fastest growing company (2 consecutive years!), and a Built In Boston Best Place to Work.

    And guess what? With our recent acquisition by text marketing leader, Attentive, we're not slowing down any time soon!
