About Apptentive

The world is a better place when everyone has a voice.

We live and breathe customer love. We’re on a mission to give every consumer a voice and empower brands to create better customer experiences. We help organizations with large customer bases increase loyalty, grow market share, gather feedback, and measure sentiment.

We Can Help if You’re Looking to Improve:


Our Story

Apptentive was founded in 2011 with a mission to make it easier for companies to build stronger relationships with their customers. We found that most tools were either reactive (waiting for customers to reach out to companies) or too pushy (broadcasting lots of messages that cannot be responded to). We wanted to use software to create a beautiful experience for companies to not only start conversations with their customers, but also listen to them, respond accordingly, and use insights gained to build more customer-centric companies.


Our Product

Our solution measures shifts in sentiment from customer experience to win back consumers and activate fans. Using machine-powered learning and precise targeting, Apptentive helps enterprise brands capture actionable emotions and feedback from the 90 percent of consumer voices typically missed, and quickly turns that feedback into action.

Our Customers

Giving a voice to everyone enables brands to create better customer experiences.

Our Investors

We power some of the world’s leading brands because we’re backed by the best investors.

Our Leadership Team

We can’t create amazing products without an incredible team. We’ve hired some of the best minds in product development, engineering, digital marketing, human resources, finance, and more because we believe if we invest in our people, we’re investing in our future.

CEO & Co-founder
Robi Ganguly
CEO & Co-founder

Early on, Robi learned about customer experience as a paperboy for The Seattle Times. From there he instructed Tae Kwon Do, learning that 7 to 14 year olds are some of the toughest customers on Earth. As a bag boy (nee’ Courtesy Clerk) for Olson’s Food Stores he learned the value of a simple conversation and taking the bags out for each and every customer. “How you leave them is how they leave,” his store manager repeated and it hit a chord.

Years later, whether it was working for Deutsche Bank Alex. Brown advising companies like Ameritrade on their M&A strategy or helping WebEx pioneer and popularize the SaaS business model, Robi was lucky to always be close to customers in his roles. At Yahoo!, he spent his time with teams in product, design and sales, working closely with global CPG brands. Robi constantly found that global business leaders were yearning for deeper, more direct customer relationships and that they were convinced that advertising had to change. In 2011, Robi founded Apptentive with the goal to help brands around the world give each of their customers a voice. Outside of Apptentive Robi enjoys running, cooking for his wife and friends, reading, and is a long-time board member at the Developer Alliance.
