Event recaps


On May 18, we were joined by Wefunder and Intercom in a virtual discussion about enabling customers to become your investors. We chatted about the importance of having a strong customer community, the future of community funding, and how Mercury’s own community funding round for our $120M Series B led to a record $23M in reservations on Wefunder.

Cheers to the Mercury Raise community for joining us at the happy hour we hosted in our NYC office on May 26.

🎉 Customer spotlights

We love offering our customers perks from fellow Mercury users. Here are the newest additions:

BoxyHQ

Boxy founders stand against a city background
  • Product: Open-source platform to help SaaS companies get enterprise-ready
  • Origin: Deepak Prabhakara experienced firsthand the challenge of building an enterprise-ready product as the CTO of RedSift, as did Sama Carlos Samame at AWS. Together, they founded BoxyHQ to help startups access enterprise features in any SaaS app with minimal coding.
  • Perk: $2K in credits

Byteboard

Byteboard founders against a grey-brown background
  • Product: Virtual project-based coding interview for evaluating technical candidates
  • Origin: Both coming from the world of engineering, founders Sargun Kaur and Nikke Hardson-Hurley shared a frustration with the recruiting process. There was a severe mismatch between the technical interview prep and the actual engineering work, a flaw that also disproportionately impacted marginalized groups. Byteboard was built to reform this process.
  • Perk: First month free
