Sync Salesforce to Mattermark

Say goodbye to manual data entry.

With just a few mouse clicks, Mattermark will speed up your organization’s deal sourcing process by updating accounts in Salesforce with funding amounts, company stage, employee count, and other valuable data on over 1 million high-growth companies.

How to Sync Salesforce to Mattermark

Start off by signing into your Salesforce account, then visit the Salesforce settings page in Mattermark via the dropdown menu which populates after clicking on the avatar in the right-hand corner of our app. You can also integrate Salesforce from any company page in Mattermark.

For this tutorial, we’ll reference how to integrate from Mattermark’s own company page. In the Quick Facts section on the right side of the page, you’ll see a Salesforce dropdown menu. Click on it, and then click on “Sync to Salesforce.”

After clicking this, Salesforce will ask you to confirm. Allowing Mattermark to sync to your Salesforce accounts creates a one-way stream: We only provide — and never take — account data.

Click “Allow” to sync. You’ll be taken to a confirmation page which says, “Salesforce successfully added to your Mattermark account.” Continuing from this page will bring up Mattermark’s Salesforce settings page, where you will be asked to map Mattermark’s data fields to Salesforce’s data fields.

Use the dropdown menu on the settings page to select which Salesforce fields you want populated with Mattermark information, then click “Add.” Next, choose which Mattermark fields will map to your choices. Continue this process until you’ve completed the items you’d like to map and click “Save.”

These are the Mattermark fields you can currently sync either to existing fields in your Salesforce installation or to new custom fields you create to hold this information:

You may edit your choices on the settings page whenever you need. To access the Salesforce settings page in Mattermark, click on the user avatar in the right-hand corner.

Adding & Updating Mattermark Companies in Salesforce

All Team plans offer the option to bulk sync Mattermark’s data with your Salesforce accounts.

To enable this feature, you must contact your Mattermark account manager. We’ll take care of the rest: As long as we can match website information in your contacts with website information in our database, we will continually and automatically update all data you’ve mapped between Mattermark and Salesforce.

Have more questions about our Salesforce integration? We’re happy to walk you through it today.

Series A Round Sizes Continue to Climb in 2015 Led by Redpoint, RRE, and Sequoia Capital

This post is part of our Startup Funding Benchmarking Series exploring the allocation, concentration, and macro trends in the financing of high growth startups.


Last week, we reported on the continued rise of Series A round sizes (and therefore valuations, assuming ownership percentage requirements are remaining steady for the majority of deals). The median Series A round size in the U.S. is $6 million, and most recently in July came in at $7 million.

When I looked at the most active Series A investors of 2015 I found something surprising: the median deal sizes for 24 of the top 25 most active Series A investors in 2015 were even higher. Some by just a little bit like Foundry Group (disclosure: a Mattermark investor) at $6.05 million median Series A, and some a lot like Redpoint at $16 million and RRE Ventures at a median Series A round size of $15 million.

Top 25 Most Active* Series A Investors, by Median Series A Round Size in 2015

2015mostactiveA

Editor’s Note: The table above shows the median Series A round size that these investors participated in, not the check sizes they wrote. It would not be crazy to assume that the higher the Series A round size, the higher the valuation of that round due to fairly standardized VC ownership requirements (unless it was co-lead).


 

It may be that lettered Series __ round names are becoming less meaningful. Indeed, investors I reached out to confirmed that several of their announced A rounds “really looked more like a B”. Perhaps, similar to Mattermark’s own funding history, these companies had already raised enough seed funding on convertible notes prior to the round to make significant progress (another interesting analysis I’d like to do).

Whatever the case, Series A rounds sizes continue to climb this year, and we will continue to report on this trend.

Is abc.xyz a Google Leak or a Spectacular Coincidence?

Just in case you’ve been asleep all afternoon, Google just dramatically changed their corporate structure by creating a new company called Alphabet. It didn’t take long for the Internet to take note of Alphabet’s unique domain name, “abc.xyz,” which Marco Arment noticed is peculiarly similar to the domain name of the mythical company from HBO’s Silicon Valley, Hooli.

I thought this was hilarious, so I texted my co-founder, Danielle. Being much smarter than me, Danielle texted back the following:

In order for Google to know Hooli was satire, they would have had to register abc.xyz later than Hooli, right? I got excited quickly and opened a tab for whois.net and found the “creation dates” for each domain and found this:

This is all of the information I have, but it begs the question: has Google Alphabet had a leak since July of 2014, or is this a spectacular coincidence?

 

UPDATE: It appears that Larry linked to Hooli.xyz in his blog post today. The “.” after the text “drone delivery effort” links directly to Hooli’s website:
