The investment will fuel Spectrm's mission to make one-to-one customer conversations at scale available to marketing teams at global brands.

Spectrm has experienced monumental growth:
- 3x revenue growth in the last two years

- 152x YoY growth in one to one brand interactions with those consumers in the same period
Spectrm's impressive customer roster, including Uber, HelloFresh, Volkswagen, Premier League, and Pandora, has contributed to the company's significant YoY revenue growth and messaging volume increases. Using Spectrm, clients have experienced unprecedented 65% consumer response rates and 50% conversion to orders, which have led to exponential revenue and ROAS increases.
