Since its founding in 2020, AI notetaker application Fathom has gained rapid traction. The startup announced it had raised a $4.7 million seed round earlier this year. Additionally, the application, which was developed exclusively for the Zoom Marketplace, secured 10,000 signups early on and is currently the #1 app on the platform.
Fathom Founder and CEO Richard White attributes Fathom’s early success to the startup’s go-to-market model. The company landed on a bottom up model early on and the model informed much of their strategy.
“We thought about go to market and distribution at about the same time we came up with the product itself,” White says. “Knowing your go to market model really drives a lot of product decisions, as well as marketing decisions and team composition decisions.”
On May 5, White will host a webinar for Founders Network members where he’ll discuss different go-to-market models in tech and how deciding on a go-to-market model early on can greatly benefit startups.
