Nulab raises $5 million in funding and aims to increase its presence in the North American and European markets NEW YORK, March 5, 2020-- Today, Nulab announced it raised $5 million from venture capital firms NOW, Inc., XTech Ventures, Inc., and Shinsei Corporate Investment Limited. The new investment will support the startup's core mission: reinvent team productivity by making it easier and more visual. With offices in New York, Amsterdam, Singapore, and Japan, Nulab creates collaboration software that help international teams of all sizes: from a few people to hundreds of employees working in different departments and time zones. Nulab's products are used by more than 4 million people in over 190 countries and include: • project management and issue tracking tool Backlog • cloud-based diagramming software Cacoo • chat app Typetalk "We are honored to have these industry leaders on board," said Nulab’s Co-founder Shinsuke Tabata. "It's inspiring to know they believe in our company and share our vision to revolutionize how people work together." Nulab plans to leverage the funding to continue its growth and become more competitive in the collaboration software industry. Specifically, the $5 millions will be used to: • Add further features and integrations to its three software. • Hire more developers in both North American and European offices. • Increase international marketing efforts. • Develop "Nulab Pass", a new security product for Backlog, Cacoo, and Typetalk. Nulab Pass will be released in Summer 2020. After enabling support for WebAuthn the past July, Nulab is now preparing to implement single sign-on (SSO) via a SAML Authentication for all its software. Users will be able to quickly and safely sign in to multiple applications with just one ID and password. "We are excited to continue creating software that help teams break down communication barriers and organizations understand better progress towards their objectives," commented Mr Tabata.
