CometChat Overview

Our mission: Fuel customer growth through meaningful user-to-user engagement.

CometChat is an all-in-one communication platform that enables businesses to easily integrate customized in-app messaging functionalities across text, voice, and video. This eliminates the need for businesses to start building a messaging module from scratch, and enables their end-users to communicate with each other, resulting in a unified customer experience, increased engagement and retention, and revenue growth.

With CometChat's ready-to-use UI kits and powerful SDKs, product teams across start-ups and enterprises alike can easily roll out a feature-rich, scalable, and secure user to user communication module.

Our company has seen rapid growth, thanks to several market validations, including our participation in Techstars Boulder Accelerator in 2019, followed by investments from experienced investors such as iSeed Ventures, Range Ventures, Silicon Badia, noncapital, and Matchstick Ventures. CometChat raised a Series A round from Signal Peak Ventures.

Beyond the market validation, we are fueled by real customer validation serving over 50K customers across the globe in several verticals ranging from dating apps, telehealth apps, and internet marketplaces to thriving global communities. With solid financials, strong organic growth, and increasing demand for in-app communication platforms, we are in an exciting rapid-scale phase.

A global business from the start, we have 100+ team members across our Denver, Salt Lake, Mumbai, and Chennai offices. We are proud of our team and are always looking to expand our tribe!

Here are the values that act as a guardrail of our execution culture: 

Go above and beyond for the customer: We are obsessed with ensuring every customer is taken care of, no matter how big or small they are. We truly believe their problems are our problems, and will stop at next to nothing to see them succeed.

Be relentless: Never stop innovating. Be relentless in trying new things, and improving our product. Challenge the status quo, embrace learning curves, and don’t be afraid to fail. Focus on the outcome and everything else will fall into place.

Be curious: Practice empathy. Anticipate customer needs, and solve them before they get there. If you don’t understand something, ask questions and learn.

Have fun: Laugh. Be positive and kind. Make people feel good. Life is too short to not spend time doing what you love with folks you enjoy being around.
