Why the future is bright at productboard
Want to work for a tech startup that’s heading for the stars? Then read on…
We are excited to kick off 2020 with some exciting news. This week, we raised an additional $45 million of Series B funding to further the vision of our company — to help product managers, teams, and organizations make products that matter, together. The lead investor is Sequoia Capital, with participation by Bessemer Venture Partners, joined by existing investors Kleiner Perkins, Index Ventures, Credo Ventures, Rockaway Capital, and Reflex Capital. The new round brings our total funding to date to $65 million.
For context, Sequoia was an early investor in Apple, Google, Cisco, Airbnb, and countless other tech companies that have gone on to change the world. Bessemer’s partnerships include Pinterest, LinkedIn, Shopify, and Yelp. As you can imagine, we are thrilled and honored to be included among the likes of these tech titans!
So, why do the world’s top VC firms choose productboard? It’s simple: productboard delivers a dedicated, end-to-end product management system. Our solution, tailor-made to the diverse needs of product organizations, is the first of its kind. And it will change how companies are run even more than CRMs did.
Build products that matter, together
At productboard, we all work towards an inspiring mission: to help organizations make products that matter, together. Our vision is one of a world full of amazing products that both function and delight.
Why? Because we believe that everyone deserves to work on products that people will use, enjoy, and love — products that are truly excellent. Life is simply too short to work on features that go unused and products that fail. And with the accelerated pace of the market and the competitive business landscape we are seeing today, building excellent products that cater to real user needs is no longer negotiable.
Helping product teams achieve excellence drives everything we do here at productboard. It informs how we interact with our customers at every touchpoint, determines the features we choose to build next, and shapes how our product and company will evolve into the future.
Because when our customers succeed, we all succeed.
