Taskade is delighted to announce that it has succeeded in raising $5 million in series seed investment from Grishin Robotics and Y Combinator. The fund is expected to help them accelerate the development of their productivity workflow tool which quickly and efficiently offers assistance to remote teams all over the world.
“We now have over 2,000 active teams on our platform, from creative agencies, design studios, and startups to teams within Fortune 500 companies. The new funding will allow us to accelerate product development for our customers and build out our vision for the future of remote collaboration.”
Speaking on the company’s creation, the founders say they were inspired by the freedom and flexibility of working from anywhere, as well as the ability to hire and partner with great people without geographical restrictions.
“Despite our positive sentiments about working remotely, we were frustrated about having to hack together multiple tools to get things done. And so we created Taskade – a simple comprehensive tool for tackling all of those challenges.”
Taskade is a simple remote work tool that allows teams to manage projects, brainstorm, write product specs, and video chat together seamlessly, with everything syncing in real-time across all devices.
The startup revealed that it had spent the summer at Y Combinator learning as much as it could from the best minds in the startup ecosystem and discovering new ways to improve its solution and develop a smoother and more functional team management tool. It was during this process that Dmitry Grishin, founder of Grishin Robotics, took interest in their unique proposition and offered to join their team as it appeared that his vision aligned with theirs.
“Remote teams are becoming the new norm where startups are hiring engineers who are working from different time zones and geographies. The team at Taskade has built a fantastic product that is lighting fast with an intuitive UI. We believe Taskade is fundamentally changing remote team collaboration by providing one tool that teams need to get work done effectively. Taskade provides a real-time, device-agnostic, and cross-platform experience to end-users. We are excited to be part of the journey with the Taskade team.” — Dmitry Grishin, Managing Partner, Grishin Robotics.
In addition to the $5 million funding generated, Dimitry Grishin will also serve as a member of the board of directors for Taskade. The seasoned business expert is expected to bring his experience in founding, building, and scaling Mail.ru, one of the largest sites on the Internet, to help Taskade achieve the lofty goals it has set out to accomplish.
Taskade wishes to extend its gratitude to its early investors and supporters whose contributions were vital in getting them this far.
