Its customers include Under Armour, Intuit, Bonobos, Twitter, Microsoft, DoorDash, PayPal and InVision. “Today, every company’s future is tied to their digital products. Products with great customer experience are driving growth in the economy,” Amplitude CEO Spenser Skates said. “These products have become the most critical revenue centers for businesses pursuing digital transformation and yet leaders underinvest in them. At Amplitude, we work with CEOs, product executives and growth leaders to help them run and scale digital businesses with democratic access to product intelligence across their organization.”

“Amplitude is a transformative company that helps its clients create the best possible product experiences for end users. We believe Amplitude’s addressable market is endless, especially today, when so many companies are focused on product-led growth. It is no wonder to us that many of the world’s best product companies are Amplitude customers, and we’d expect it is only a matter of time until many more follow suit. We couldn’t be prouder to partner with such a special company,” Lead Edge’s Mitchell Green added.
