ContentSquare was founded in Paris in 2012, by Jonathan Cherki, who started developing the technology four years earlier as part of the ESSEC business school Ventures incubator. In 2012, his project was recognized by Tremplin Entreprise, an awards committee jointly managed by ESSEC and the French Senate. It received a 450,000 Euro grant from French business angel Seed4Soft.



In 2014, ContentSquare licensed its software. The solution was voted one of the most innovative e-commerce technologies in the world by Gartner.

In 2016, ContentSquare secured a $20M capital investment by venture capital firm Highland Europe. By then, the company ranked in Deloitte’s Fast 500 list.



In December 2017 to get a sense of what items were people abandoning in their carts, ContentSquare analyzed over 29 million online shopping sessions across 14 retail accounts during the 3.5 month holiday period.



In January 2018, to understanding how consumers and users interact with your website and apps ContentSquare received a $42 million investment from a venture capital consortium led by US-based firm Canaan, and including Highland Europe, Eurazeo and H14.
