The first thing a salesperson need to do is, figure out his target to which he should pitch. But when it comes to target and pitching, most of them are just wasting time by targeting the wrong clients.Node, which is a startup says that; it uses artificial intelligence to find and figure out the sales leads for you. The company was in the “Stealth Mode” for the past 2.5 years and has announced that it has been financed by Avalon Ventures. It was funded with an amount of $10.8 Million. Whereas, it was also revealed that Mark Cuban, NEA and Canaan Partners have also participated in this funding.
Here are the comments of Mark Cuban about the startup Node:
“It is an incredible company that is changing the game for sales intelligence. Selling is no longer hunting and gathering. They make it a knowledge approach.”
The founder and CEO of the Node, Falon Fatemi says that her working experience at Google played a huge role in helping her understand the algorithms that help businesses.
She also said that “Node is a search engine without a search box.” It’s people-based intelligence.”
While summing up her business, she said that: “the main problem that we’re solving is that we’re essentially facilitating the discovery of the right person at the right company at the right time and even suggesting the right message to reach out.”
Future Plans of Node:
In the near future the Node would also be recommending the next hire, as well as the next job opportunity and even dating.
While Node is targeting salespeople right now, she hopes to eventually build platforms for other categories. In the future, Node will be “recommending the next hire, next job opportunity or even dating.”
