Neha Sampat’s

Story

It’s been said that Neha Sampat “goes against the grain of startup mythology.” She is a three-time tech founder and CEO, even though she comes from a non-technical background. Neha is also known for building purpose-driven companies that are great places to work.

Neha is currently founder and CEO at Contentstack, the leading Content Experience Platform(CXP). She recently led the company through a $57.5M series B, taking the total capital raised to $89M over the past two years. Neha previously founded and led digital transformation consultancy Raw Engineering and digital experience Platform Built.io, which was acquired by Software AG in September 2018.

Neha often speaks at conferences and events about her experience as an entrepreneur, female founder, leader, culture builder, and equity champion. She was recognized as “Female Tech Trailblazer of the Year in 2020” by IT Supply Chain, and “Best CEO for Diversity” and “Best CEO for Women” in the 2020 Comparably Best Places to Work Awards. Aragon Research also
named her its 2018 CEO of the Year, and Inc. named Contentstack one of its Best Workplaces in America in 2021.

Neha is a relentless advocate for achieving equity in the workplace through initiatives like the ScaleUp Diversity Pledge and Pledge 1%, board participation, incubator programs, and
mentorship. In her Dreammakers podcast, she interviews women trailblazers who balance profit and purpose while finding sustainable ways to lift people and communities up. Neha is a certified sommelier.
