About the Company: Led by Aneto Okonkwo, Co-Founder & CEO, Chatdesk combines machine learning with U.S-based agents to connect a user’s social channels, email, SMS, and chat to clear ticket backlogs and turn social comments and DMs into conversions. The platform connects with existing customer service systems like Zendesk, Gorgias, Intercom, Ada, Gladly, Kustomer, and more, as well as a brand’s social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok. It then finds “Superfans” of a brand to become Chatdesk Experts and handles the hiring, training, and staff scheduling to instantly scale the customer support team. On the backend, machine learning analyzes previous support messages to create an evolving, on-brand knowledge base. Chatdesk’s technology enables Superfans to respond to customer questions with the brand’s voice and policies from day one. Hundreds of brands including Thinx, Shea Moisture, Factor Meals, Moo.com, and Mented Cosmetics use it to scale their customer support and drive sales.
