About Rocketlane

Rocketlane is an exciting and fast-growing SaaS startup with a mission to deliver chaos-free, consistent, accelerated, and delightful B2B client project delivery across industries.

With its current focus on aiding B2B SaaS companies to simplify and deliver an impressive customer onboarding journey, the Company is fast emerging as a leader in the customer onboarding category. Rocketlane prides itself in enabling teams to provide a delightful onboarding journey that holds customers accountable, shortens time-to-value, and helps begin expansion conversations earlier (increases NRR) right from the first touchpoint with customers.

The company was founded in April 2020 by second-time entrepreneur trio - Srikrishnan, Vignesh, and Deepak. Previously, the trio built a successful in-app messaging (FreshChat) startup that was acquired by Freshworks (NASDAQ: FRSH) in 2015.

The Company has been recognized as a Leader by G2 in the Category of Customer Onboarding consistently, since its product launch in 2021 and has garnered globally from the likes of Clari, Uniphore, Observe.ai, Chargebee, 15five, Mixmax, Afterpay, Pave, GoCardless, Flatfile, Mosaic, Jirav, etc. In 2022, the Company has also been recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor.

Rocketlane is now building a global and diverse workplace to empower passionate problem-solvers to innovate, collaborate, do their best work, and see the next phase of hyper-growth together.

The Company has raised $21M in capital (we rapped about it!) from global VCs such as 8VC, Nexus Venture Partners, Matrix Partners India, and super angels like Gokul Rajaram, Girish Mathrubootham, and Clark Valberg, etc.
