Ciro

All-in-one sales intelligence platform 🔍

Sales is about building relationships 🤝 — but you wouldn’t know it from watching most sales teams today. The average sales rep spends 1-2 days per week researching and list-building instead of spending time with customers. We’re building the most comprehensive index of businesses and contacts, combined with powerful data connectors and workflow automation that give salespeople superpowers. Our stodgy competitors have been around for 100 years and have not innovated in decades. Modern sales teams deserve better! Ciro is a tight-knit team of engineers, sales execs, and product managers with experience from Stanford, Google, Meta, Flexport, and Bain & Co. Our CEO and COO have both served as VPs of Sales at high-growth SaaS startups and understand our domain deeply. We are backed by some of the best investors in the world, including Y Combinator, SV Angel, CRV, and the founders of Tegus, BuildZoom, and Flexport.

Company Launches

What’s the Problem?

If you run a business selling to an SMB vertical, you’ve probably found it impossible to find rich data on the prospects in your market… and that existing data solutions are rife with missing records, infrequent updates, and incorrect contact information.

What’s the Solution?

Ciro handles prospect list building so you don’t have to.

Our solution combines hundreds of vertical-specific web crawlers that run every day, plus a data ingestion engine that joins dozens of public and proprietary data sources. Through these tools we provide our customers with a complete prospect database, plus vertical-specific “signals” to focus their outreach.

Examples of these “signals” include:

  • Changes to a prospect’s tech stack (e.g. a doctor’s office uninstalls ZocDoc)
  • New company formation (e.g. a newly-registered construction license)
  • Ownership changes (e.g. change-of-control updates to company reporting docs)
