Dialpad Raises $170 Million and Increases Valuation to $2.2 Billion as it Leads New Era of AI-Powered Communications

Dialpad Inc. , the industry leader in AI-powered cloud communications and collaboration, today announced $170 million in funding. The amount raised and valuation of $2.2 billion reflects the increasing importance of a truly unified approach to business communications. To date, Dialpad has raised $418 million in capital.

ICONIQ Capital leads the funding round which includes participation from Amasia, GV, OMERS Growth Equity, Work-Bench, Section 32, and T-Mobile Ventures. Dialpad will use this funding to invest in the further development and application of native artificial intelligence (AI) throughout its unified platform; hiring top talent across data engineering, natural language processing, machine learning and customer-facing roles to support its rapid global growth.

“Dialpad is the world’s most advanced AI-powered communications, collaboration, and contact center platform, providing a customer- and cloud-first solution that enables more efficient and effective conversations,” said Craig Walker, founder and CEO, Dialpad. “This latest round of funding, and increased valuation, showcases Dialpad’s continued momentum and strengthens our dedication to helping companies scale and enterprises thrive in today’s hybrid, work-from-anywhere world.”

“Dialpad is at the forefront of cloud-based, native AI communications, collaboration, and contact center solutions. ICONIQ Capital is proud to again invest in Dialpad’s vision to deliver streamlined communications combined with crucial data-driven insights all through one application,” said Will Griffith, Founding Partner, ICONIQ Capital. “As the creator of Google Voice, Craig Walker knows what it means to disrupt an entire category. Walker recognized the pain points consumers had communicating at scale in the cloud. Now, he is applying that same philosophy with Dialpad, extending it to the enterprise and is once again disrupting the status quo.”
