“Zoom is proud to partner with XTC for the third year in a row. We’ve had a fantastic experience sponsoring the Productivity vertical in the past, and we’re excited to support this group of world-changing entrepreneurs again. Zoom helps teams be more productive with high-quality video communications, and it’s a pleasure to support other productivity innovations by promising startups.”
