#FlipMyFunnel is excited to announce that David Cancel, CEO and Founder of Drift, will speak at Revenue Summit 2017!
David Cancel is a serial entrepreneur with immense passion and focus on “growing something from nothing” and creating forward-thinking businesses.
As 5X co-founder and a 2X CEO with four successful exits to date, David serves as Advisor, Investor, and/or Director to more than 20 startups, including LeadPages, Engagio, Yieldbot, and more. David also has a rich history as a founder for the technology startups Compete, Lookery, Ghostery, and Performable.
Performable’s history as a startup is particularly interesting. Performable offers a software platform for businesses looking to optimize their marketing, sales and customer service efforts. It offers a unified view of your customers across e-mail, web, social media and mobile channels, analytical tools to understand what marketing and sales efforts are working and the ability to trigger marketing campaigns based on real-time customer behavior.
Hubspot acquired Performable in June 2011, and David Cancel became the Chief Product Officer for Hubspot where he served until September 2014 – and then founded Drift (because serial entrepreneurs don’t just start a business once).
Drift is a messaging app for sales & customer success. “Nine out of ten consumers want to be able to use messaging to talk to businesses. And when you have a website experience that matches, you won’t just get happier visitors — you’ll get more leads and you’ll close more sales.” Drift’s mission is to create the world’s best customer communication platform – where millions of businesses can connect and communicate with their customers anytime, anywhere.
David Cancel was born and raised in New York, but currently resides in Boston.
