A letter from Michael Scharff, CEO of Evolv Technologies
I am thrilled to announce the launch of Evolv Technologies™.
Today we announced that Evolv Technologies has finalized the acquisition of Sentient Ascend™, the world’s leading autonomous experience optimization solution for websites and mobile applications. Evolv concurrently closed a $10 million financing round, led by Horizons Ventures.
The Evolv team is still the same team that successfully built and launched Ascend—we’re proud of our track record in developing breakthrough AI marketing technology.
With our new funding, we will expand our efforts to extend the capabilities of Ascend to meet the complex needs of our partners’ businesses. We will also be enhancing our customer success and technology teams, as well as our authorized partner network, to provide our customers with even more support in leveraging the Ascend platform.
For those of you who are new to Ascend, Ascend is an evolutionary AI SaaS platform that gives marketers the power to simultaneously test multiple potential improvements to their websites and mobile apps, allowing for experimentation to be carried out at a scale never before achieved. The technology automates the experimentation process, accelerating the path to improved website performance and saving significant resource costs.
As we launch our new company, we’re proud of the many great partners we work with to accelerate their website testing and optimization programs. Ascend customers include Verizon, Celebrity Cruises, Rakuten, Eagle Retailing Corporation (American Eagle Outfitters Japan), GS Shop, Clicksco, Essent, Energie Direct, Landal Greenparks, Innogy, and many other top brands and innovation leaders in the e-commerce, travel, financial services, telecommunications, and automotive sectors.
Collectively, as a team, we are excited about what the future holds and look forward to maintaining our position at the forefront of autonomous optimization technologies.
I would love to hear from you to share more about Ascend!
