By Editor August 7, 2019

Y Combinator-backed startup Apollo.io is introducing its self-service platform today.

The company, which provides 50 free data credits per month, enables businesses to work with its newest release with a single click. Its approach is to bring together all contact, activity, and information to support teams when interacting with data.

According to its CEO Jim Benton, “We believe Apollo’s platform is the best option out there for quality data with products that make that data more actionable, no matter how you work.”


The company, which is also backed by Nexus Venture Partners, gives individuals the power to set up workflows with intelligent solutions from sales to marketing. It also integrates with CRMs like Salesforce and Hubspot.

According to RolePoint VP of Marketing JP Bertram, “With the direct dials provided by Apollo, we doubled our connect rates and booked 4 times as many opportunities, compared to other direct dial providers.”

Apollo.io was founded by Tim Zheng, Roy Chung and Ray Li and is based in San Francisco.
