Our current customers include NASA, Buzzfeed, Barstool Sports, PBS, Planetscale, and Panther.
Vantage is also backed by outstanding top-tier investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Calvin French Owen (Co-Founder, Segment), Ben and Moisey Uretsky (Co-Founders, DigitalOcean), Stephanie and Nat Friedman (CEO, Github), Julia Lipton, Brianne Kimmel and others.
