Our Mission & History
DiscoverOrg’s mission is to create a revolution in sales that transforms the global B2B economy. We empower sales and marketing teams by giving them the right information, the right technology, and the insight on the right time to contact prospects.
By democratizing prospective customer information and making it available to companies of all sizes, we level the playing field so that competitive advantages are not based on relationships, insider information, or company size but instead solely predicated on delivering the best products, ideas and value. Moreover, we accelerate global innovation by helping companies achieve faster revenue growth, reducing their cost of sales, and ensuring that businesses have access to the best products and services that help them succeed.
The History of DiscoverOrg
Henry Schuck and Kirk Brown ─ two entrepreneurs on a mission to revolutionize the sales intelligence space ─ launched DiscoverOrg in a small, upstairs room in Ohio in 2007. Working with no venture capital or external funding, Henry and Kirk bootstrapped the company’s early stage and devoted themselves to evangelizing their innovative approach to growth-oriented enterprises, SMBs, and startups.
The DiscoverOrg concept resonated with the marketplace and quickly gained traction with top sales and marketing professionals. From just three employees (including Henry and Kirk), DiscoverOrg quickly grew and strategically relocated to Vancouver, Washington in 2009.
In less than six years, DiscoverOrg expanded to 150 employees and industry insiders now recognize DiscoverOrg as one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies. Named a three-time Inc. 500 company, DiscoverOrg has earned numerous awards, including the SIIA CODiE Award for Best Sales and Marketing Intelligence Solution in 2014.
