Wilson Sonsini Advises Chartable in $2.25 Million in Funding

Wilson Sonsini represent “the technology pioneers and disruptors associated with market-changing innovation”. They have supported Chartable in its recent seed funding transaction.

On September 11, 2020, Chartable, a start-up known for its authoritative podcast download charts, announced it had raised $2.25 million in seed funding, led by Initialized Capital, which also contributed to Chartable’s $1.5 million round last year. Other investors include Naval Ravikant, Greycroft Partners, The Fund, Weekend Fund, Jim Young, and Lukas Beiwald. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati supported Chartable in the transaction.

TechCrunch reported that Chartable founders Dave Zohrob and Harish Agarwal previously worked together at AngelList, and they also created Hacker Daily, a podcast recapping the headlines from Hacker News. Dave Zohrob told TechCrunch that their experience hosting a podcast convinced them to create an analytics product. This is why Chartable was built.

It helps podcasters connect their Apple Podcast analytics, hosting platform, Spotify for Podcasters, and more to track relationships between podcasters and advertising efforts. It also lets podcasters use consumption analytics from Apple Podcasts and Spotify which can be used to guide editorial decisions on future guests or topics.
