ClickUp, an all-in-one customizable workplace productivity platform that serves all departments across an organization, announced that it raised $35 million in Series A funding led by Craft Ventures with participation from Georgian Partners.

David O. Sacks will join the board. And ClickUp has also announced the launch of its new Remote Work OS product with AI-powered tools to help employees collaborate live, prioritize tasks, and gain real-time project insights.

ClickUp is known for helping customers, including Google, Nike, Uber, Airbnb, Netflix, and Ubisoft by replacing (or integrating with) all of the workplace applications they use on a daily basis. And ClickUp has over 100 native integrations as well as integrations with 1,000+ common workplace tools, including Google Drive, Slack, Zoom, Salesforce, GitHub, and Zendesk. The ClickUp platform provides teams of 2 to 2,000 access to productivity tools in one seamless platform and is customizable for any team regardless of size, technical ability, or workflow.

Last year, collaboration software was a $45 billion market globally and the need is only growing. And with a sharp increase in remote work around the world in the first half of 2020, collaboration and productivity tools have become more crucial than ever to drive successful businesses: 80% of the US workforce reported that the ability to work remotely would reduce stress. But now productivity tools that exist across multiple platforms have become incredibly time consuming to manage, ultimately requiring a greater level of time investment, and rendering companies less efficient overall.

In order to service this growing need, ClickUp now also helps teams effortlessly manage work across the globe with the launch of its Remote Work OS product. And ClickUp’s Remote Work OS boosts productivity and efficiency among teams of all sizes and skills, with features including:

LineUp — Utilizes AI to prioritize tasks so everyone knows exactly what to work on next

Pulse Live Collaboration — Allows teams to see what other people are working on in real-time

Mind Maps — Helps teams visualize a new product or feature for faster and better outcomes

Timelines — Optimizes product timelines and scheduling

Key Quotes:

“Like most businesses, my previous company had to use so many different productivity and project management tools to manage various functions across the organization, and I knew there had to be a better, smarter way to improve productivity at work. What started as an internal tool eventually became ClickUp. Our customers want one app to replace them all; this funding will enable us to accelerate that vision for the 100,000+ teams already on ClickUp and deliver it out of the box for all the teams that haven’t discovered us yet.”

“The international workforce now needs productivity solutions that support remote work. What began as a necessity due to the COVID-19 pandemic has permanently changed the workforce and how corporate decisions are made. Remote work solutions are no longer a ‘nice to have’ for businesses across the world, and ClickUp is here to save people time and money regardless of where and how they work.”

– Zeb Evans, Founder and CEO of ClickUp

“ClickUp’s rapid growth through viral, bottom up adoption was a clear sign to us: people love it. We believe Zeb’s vision for uniting collaboration tools on one, flexible platform is the future for the category.”
