Aircall has just secured $29 million in Series B funding, led by Draper Esprit, with participation from Balderton Capital, NextWorld Capital, eFounders, Newfund and other existing investors, bringing total funding to $40.5 million to-date.

Paris-based Aircall will use the fresh capital to accelerate the buildout of its cloud-based phone system, enabling seamless integrations into all the software tools used by modern businesses. The young company will also dedicate portions of the funds to acquire top talent to supplement its growing teams in both the U.S. and Europe.

Ben Tompkins, Managing Partner at Draper Esprit, commented: “Most business tools have been redefined in recent years to enable collaboration and flexibility across a company. However, for too many teams, the phone remains disconnected from the rest of their everyday tools. The Aircall team is uniquely positioned to change this, which is why we’re so excited to make this investment.”

Since its inception in 2014, thousands of businesses have turned to Aircall to improve their communications. Aircall replaces outdated systems with a collaborative and efficient platform that provides relevant customer data and agent-facing tools at the onset of every call.

Aircall aims to empower businesses to connect with their customers, partners, and employees in new ways. Most recently, the company launched Aircall Now to enable voice calling within business messenger platforms, improving millions of monthly conversations.

“Teams are increasingly looking for efficiency and productivity gains made possible by integrating your phone into the SaaS tools your business is already using,” said Olivier Pailhes, CEO of Aircall. “We look forward to delivering more value to our customers through product enhancements and a broader integration ecosystem.”

Aircall has enjoyed rapid expansion through strategic partnerships and strong customer adoption. The platform has quickly grown from handling thousands of calls to millions of calls daily and is expanding to business teams worldwide.
