Today, we are excited to announce our new round of funding to accelerate our mission of helping the world to communicate in writing.
The $4.4 million seed round is led by Project A and joined by Moonfire Ventures as well as existing investors Lifeline Ventures and Seedcamp. New angel investors, including Ilkka Paananen (CEO & Co-founder of Supercell), Sven Ahrens (Director of Global Growth at Spotify), and Johannes Schildt (CEO & Co-Founder of Kry), also participated.
The round took place approximately one year after our pre-seed round, bringing our total funding to $5m.
September 2022 update: Almost a year after our seed round, we have gone through massive product updates to make Flowrite's user experience even more robust. Here's how Flowrite looks and feels at the moment:
Helping the world to communicate in writing
We believe that written communication is one of the most essential skills when we head to the future of work. The ability to deliver your message efficiently and effectively is paramount – especially for knowledge workers, who spend their days on email, LinkedIn, Slack, and various other professional communication platforms.
Still, the craft of writing has remained fundamentally the same for decades. Our mission when founding Flowrite was to create an entirely new way to communicate in writing – helping people be more productive in their daily work.
Solving a massive problem for 1000s of early adopters
Over our first year, we have come to realize how big of a problem we are solving. Our first announcement in October last year – just a few weeks after founding the company – was followed by an incredible response from the community. Since then, we’ve seen incredible organic growth in our signups, with our waitlist now totaling 30,000 people.
Thousands of people have been spontaneously sharing Flowrite with their friends. Some have even gone as far as inviting hundreds of their friends to the waitlist to get earlier access to the product.
Keeping up with the demand
To meet the increasing demand, we launched our private beta in the summer of 2021 and have since been building our product together with several hundred engaged users – some of them using the product up to 50 times a day to speed up their communication.
Our beta users include entrepreneurs, executives, and other professionals across company functions such as sales, customer support, and HR. Among them are people from companies such as Google, Stripe, and Tesla.
The Flowrite product is the fruit of the collaborative work with every early user who has taken the time to adapt the product as part of their workflow and provide us with invaluable feedback. We are beyond grateful to share this milestone with all of you.
Pioneering the future of communication
Flowrite is unlike anything people have used before – we are creating new user experiences and innovative AI-powered features as we go. Building something like this is not a walk in the park, but surely one of the most exciting challenges we could imagine.
In the last 9 months, we’ve been fortunate to have been joined by 10 amazing individuals (spanning 8 nationalities 🌍), who have all made a lasting impact on the foundation of our product and business. Together, we've built a culture where it's possible to truly own your work and collaborate seamlessly in a remote-first environment.
Rolling out in 2022
The new funding presents us with incredible resources to continue building a world-class product and accommodating the demand we are seeing.
We’ll continue investing heavily in our core product and AI to extend our unique product foundation that will stand the test of time. For now, we are keeping our heads down to build the best possible product for 30,000 people on our waitlist and move to public access in 2022.
We are excited to have you onboard our journey to create the future of written communication – sign up to our waitlist below.
