Danish startup Dixa nabs €89 million to help brands to stay connected with their customers

Dixa, the Danish customer service solution that evolved into a customer engagement platform, today announced a Series C funding round totalling around €89 million. The company using a multiexperience approach to deliver value-driven experiences that generate results for businesses.

The Series C round was led by General Atlantic, with participation from existing investors Notion Capital Project A and Seed Capital. Dixa will leverage the new funds to invest in product development, including potential new acquisitions (following Dixa’s acquisition of Melbourne-based Elevio in January 2021), and plans to quadruple the engineering team by the end of 2022. Additionally, the company will focus on significantly scaling Dixa’s global presence.

Founded in Denmark in 2015 and launched to market in 2018, Dixa has quickly grown into a global company with offices in Copenhagen, London, New York, Berlin, Kyiv, Tel Aviv and Melbourne. The company enables brands to stay connected with customers, wherever they are, in a simplified and seamless environment across new and existing touchpoints such as messaging, live chat, email or voice. “For today’s customers, channels have ceased to matter. The way they engage now is holistically blended into what is called ‘multiexperience’. This is how we’re empowering brands to continuously stay true to their values,” says Mads Fosselius, founder and CEO of Dixa.

“The profitability and efficiency mindset that has been the industry standard for years simply helped brands keep up with customers. That was the omnichannel approach in technology, but its time has passed. In response to a major shift to value in consumer behavior, brands need a truly agile, productivity-enhancing tech stack that evolves with customers and doesn’t lag behind. This is how we shift from transactional, tickets-based customer service to value-added customer engagement. That’s what we are offering to our customers so they stand out and create long-lasting business value through ‘Customer Friendship’,” continued Mads Fosselilus, Dixa CEO, who we interviewed in March of 2020.

“Customer service software is undergoing a fundamental transformation, moving away from disjointed, transactional approaches towards longitudinal, conversational engagement. Dixa has helped to define and lead this multiexperience approach, with a product and vision that is meeting the market where it is headed,” added Tom Hussey, Vice President in General Atlantic’s Technology sector focused on B2B software. “Drawing from a deep understanding of customer service operations, Mads and the Dixa team are bringing a fresh, next-generation approach to the customer experience. We look forward to partnering with the company to significantly accelerate the business’ expansion into North America and growth internationally.”
