- Workona announced that it has launched a cloud desktop platform and raised a $6 million round of funding led by K9 and August Capital
Workona announced it has launched its cloud desktop platform — which is a work management tool that allows users to access and manage resources across over 75 popular cloud apps from a single unified system. Plus the company also completed a $6 million seed round of funding led by K9 Ventures and August Capital.
This round of funding will be used to accelerate its product development and user acquisition. And Workona’s cloud-based desktop connects to the most popular cloud apps in use like Amazon, Asana, Basecamp, Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Docs, Outlook, Zoom, etc. Each of these apps can be accessed through Workona.
“So many people spend their days working in the cloud, but there was no platform to manage that work. That’s what Workona does,” said Workona co-founder and CEO Quinn Morgan. “Previously, all of your cloud apps, projects, and documents were scattered across the web. Workona’s cloud desktop pulls them together into one powerful system.”
By having a central location to access different tools and platforms, it significantly increases a user’s efficiency.
“Workona solves a problem that is staring us in the face, but we haven’t noticed it yet,” added Workona board member and K9 Ventures investor Manu Kumar. “Microsoft and Apple used to put an enormous amount of engineering power into optimizing the desktop, but all that was forgotten when we transitioned to working in the browser. Workona has picked up where they left off by bringing the best features of a desktop to the cloud.”
Some of the company’s early users come from startups and Fortune 500 companies. Plus it includes industry leaders like Twitter, Salesforce, Amazon, and NASA.
