About Fathom

This WeFunder campaign was initially targeted exclusively at Fathom users as a way to say "Thank You" for their support. 🫶

Now we're extending it to the broader WeFunder community with the hope that many of you will become not only investors but avid Fathom users yourselves! 💗

Fathom is changing the way people recall and share important information from their virtual meetings by replacing manual note taking with real-time recording, transcription, and AI-based summarization.

Unlike competitors, Fathom grows virally with a PLG motion and a free offering for individual contributors that is valuable to everyone at a company, not just sales.

People love Fathom 💘

In only our first year we've achieved some pretty impressive accolades from users:


But don’t take our word for it - hear happy Fathom users in their own words



Virality 🚀

It’s important that our users love Fathom. 

Their Zoom calls start off with them explaining what the app is and why they’re using it to record the meeting. This leads many users to essentially promote the product to the attendees of their Zoom meetings (thank you!).

We’ve found that a consistent percentage of meeting attendees subsequently sign up for Fathom after the meeting.

This leads to Fathom having a K-factor >1 for activated users in just 6 months which continues to increase steadily over time.  Any app with a K-factor of 1+ is considered "viral". 



Growth 📈

Fathom's word-of-mouth virality combined with the Zoom App marketplace are the primary sources of new users.

Both of these acquisition channels require zero marketing expenses and overall we spend less than $1K per month on advertising.

The growth of these acquisition channels have led to product usage scaling quickly in recent months hitting over 90,000 calls recorded in August 2022.


Monetization 💰

Fathom is a great product for individuals, but it’s an even better product when used across a team or company. 

It's for this reason that we’re focused on monetizing on team-wide and company-wide deployments and leaving Fathom free for individuals.

To that end we're developing a Fathom Team Edition so that managers can roll out the productivity gains from Fathom to their entire team as well as have unprecedented visibility into what's happening on those front-line customer calls.

Though it's still in Early Access we've already had almost 100 companies sign up and start paying for Team Edition in the last 6 weeks.


Competition ⚔️


Sales Specific - Gong, Chorus, and clones

  • Fathom focuses on being used by the entire company not just the sales team
  • For sales teams, Fathom provides value to sales reps not just sales managers
  • Fathom’s PLG motion and lower price point ($40/user/mo vs $100/user/mo) gives us greater distribution and significant advantage in current market conditions where customers are price conscious

Generalized Solutions - Otter, etc

  • Fathom’s combination of Zoom App Marketplace & Virality (driven by being the only completely free product among competitors) gives us a significant distribution advantage


Fundraising 🔥

Fathom has previously raised a total of $5.6M from a coalition of early Zoom investors (Maven Ventures, Bill Tai, Matt Ocko), notable founders (People.ai, 6Sense, Drift, Reddit, Twitch, Cruise, Mercury, Clearbit, etc), early-stage VC firms (Character, Soma Capital, Global Founders Capital, Active Capital, Rackhouse.vc), and Zoom itself through its newly formed Zoom Apps Fund.

Building a big coalition of investors was as intentional as it is atypical. Rather than a single VC, we wanted a big tent of folks with a diverse set of skills, connections and expertise to help us along this journey.

Now we want to expand that coalition further by including you, our beloved early adopters.

We've been humbled by how many of you, without prompting, have asked about investing in Fathom. You now have the opportunity to invest alongside, and at the same valuation, as these professional investors and angels from our Seed round with this WeFunder campaign.

The funds raised here will help us accelerate our ambitions (and hiring) ahead of a Series A we have targeted for later on this year.

But more importantly, your investment strengthens the coalition between us and our biggest asset: our amazing users.
