Investment to accelerate inclusion of people with disabilities
A note from Mark Steele, CEO and Co-Founder, eSSENTIAL Accessibility
Today is a monumental day for digital accessibility.
I’m thrilled to announce that eSSENTIAL Accessibility has secured $55 million in funding from global investment firm KKR. This is a historic investment in the digital accessibility technology sector, and KKR’s financial and strategic support will enable us to scale our technology, our processes and our human expertise even faster to serve more customers and help make the digital world accessible.
This investment validates our unique approach to the problem of digital accessibility. Namely, an all-in-one platform that combines technology, manual evaluation, accessibility experts, and legal guidance. This unified approach enables organizations to achieve and sustain digital accessibility across all of their sites, apps and products.
Our growth and success has been made possible by our incredible team, the people who work tirelessly every day pushing boundaries to better serve our customers. I’m lucky to be surrounded by the best in the business. Thank you!
