At the intersection of employee engagement and sales enablement software, Ambition is uniquely positioned to maximize the visibility, insights and collaboration across entire revenue teams.
“We decided to raise funds because the pain and challenge customers are facing is so acute,” said Brian Trautschold, COO and co-founder of Ambition. “Sales managers and revenue leaders are in a very tough position with remote work, and a myriad of point solutions have created more disengagement and noise than ever. Sales managers don’t want to be analysts––they want to coach their reps to succeed.”
This investment will catalyze Ambition’s ongoing growth initiatives and further its goals to gamify sales and better recognize reps in a hybrid workplace.

“The Sales Performance Management space is largely comprised of software that turns commission plans into dashboards. While useful, this reactive approach does not align with the fast-paced environment where revenue leaders must turn insights into actions in real-time,” said Travis Truett, CEO and co-founder of Ambition. “This is the problem Ambition is solving. We’re thrilled to advance our mission to help salespeople achieve their goals in a work-from-anywhere world and honored to have the backing of our new investors.”
Ambition courts enterprise companies with large sales teams, in addition to high-velocity sales and demand generation teams. Customer Success and Customer Support teams also increasingly use the platform to maximize revenue and provide excellent customer experience coaching.
“Since its inception, Ambition has embodied the ‘constraints breeds creativity’ mantra, running lean as the market matured and customers recognized the value in measuring more than just quota attainment,” said Truett. “The pandemic expedited this process at a rapid pace as remote work and employee apathy disrupted sales teams across the world.”
