G2 Crowd Has Become for Business Buyers What Amazon Is for Consumers. The Company Has Already Helped 23 Million Business Buyers in Purchasing the Right Technology. This Fresh Funding Guarantees a Stronger Platform for B2B Buying Decisions
$100 million – that’s G2 Crowd’s total investment so far from investors IVP, Emergence Capital, Accel and Pritzker Group.
