Capacity won gold in the 2020 Pepperdine Most Fundable Companies award

October 15, 2020, LOS ANGELES — Capacity, a new kind of helpdesk, powered by artificial intelligence, today announces that it achieved a Gold Level designation on the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School’s third annual Most Fundable Companies List. Capacity competed against over 4,500 early-stage U.S. companies spanning all 50 states with less than $10 million in annual revenue to be named among a list of twenty. The Most Fundable Companies initiative is designed to bridge the gap between startups and the capital they need to succeed.

Based in St. Louis and founded by David Karandish and Chris Sims, Capacity’s mission is to help teams do their best work. Employees and customers can both benefit from Capacity’s AI-powered helpdesk. Capacity automates support, improves team productivity, and enhances the customer experience, leading to increased customer satisfaction and retention.

“Since starting Capacity in 2017, we’ve been focused on making strategic decisions to create the best product for our customers. The Most Fundable Companies initiative provided us with a data-driven framework that has enhanced our company strategy and has already been incorporated into our fundraising activities,” said Capacity CEO, David Karandish. “It’s extremely validating that Pepperdine Graziadio Business School is recognizing entrepreneurs like myself across the country, providing resources to assist startups in realizing their market potential and in securing private investment to accelerate growth.”

The Most Fundable Companies initiative involved a multi-phase assessment that evaluated several company variables including financial projections, market opportunity, intellectual property and the strength of the management team, all of which were used to produce a fundability score. The Pepperdine Most Fundable Companies were evaluated and selected based on their readiness for private investment. Most Fundable Companies is powered by The Venture Alliance. As a winner on the Most Fundable Companies List, Capacity will be profiled on and will be featured in the December print issue of the magazine.
