As a new age of digital collaboration begins and businesses worldwide re-envision the future of their workspace, Spike, the conversational work ecosystem, today announced that it has raised $8 million in Series A funding led by Insight Partners, a leading global venture capital and private equity firm focused on investing in ScaleUp software companies, to support its development of new collaboration tools for this fully-digital workforce. The company has launched a suite of new, seamlessly integrated essential real-time communication and workflow capabilities, including tasks, to- dos, notes and documents. Unlike many siloed collaboration tools and digital workspace solution products, Spike is the world’s first application that combines productivity tools and email into a powerful inbox.
“Now, more than ever, teams and individuals need to be connected and aligned as we continue working from home in the largest numbers ever seen. Spike is positioned to lead the entire modern workspace and reinvent how we work by combining email with essential services to get the job done without spending time switching between platforms,” said Dvir Ben-Aroya, Spike co-founder and CEO. “Up until now, Spike has primarily been rethinking how email should work by turning legacy email into chat-like conversations. Today, in our latest update, Spike adds tasks, notes and real-time collaboration into the world’s most powerful email inbox to set the stage for how we will get work done in the future – together, in one feed, in real-time.”
