XFactor, a new startup that is redefining go-to-market and annual operations planning, was founded after a $10 million seed investment sponsored by Lightspeed Venture Partners and family and friends. Founded by Mike Carpenter, a veteran sales leader who most recently served as President of Global Sales and Field Operations at CrowdStrike, XFactor provides enterprise, startup, and venture capitalists with technology and services to modernize annual operations planning and eliminate unnecessary go-to-market risks.
