The global productivity management software market is projected to reach $102.98 billion by 2027. Thus, tools that harness team members’ individuality and focus specifically on the challenges of the modern workplace are always going to be in demand.
Betting big on the segment, Berlin-based company building the future of to-dos and breathing new life into workplace productivity by catering to individual team members’ needs, Superlist has raised €10 million funding. The seed round was led by EQT Ventures, with participation from previous investor Cherry Ventures, and angel investors. The new capital will be used to strengthen its team of product leads, developers, and designers.
The company has raised total funding of €13.5 million to date.
Founded in 2020 by Steffen Kiedel, Ben Kubota, Brandon Arnold, Marcel Käding and Christian Reber, the platform is a task and project management app for modern teams. According to the company, the tool introduces a more human approach to how work is shared and organised. With an interface designed to be simple, intuitive and aesthetically pleasing, it allows users to have natural, conversational touchpoints with their colleagues. At the same time, the product is mindful of privacy by factoring in users who do not want to share everything with their colleagues. Superlist can be easily integrated with other tools, enabling teams to boost their productivity while retaining their preferred ways of working.
Steffen Kiedel, CEO, Superlist, said: “As a product and design-driven company tackling a huge market opportunity early on in our journey, finding partners who share our passion and vision for our future is crucial. We look forward to shaping the product in a way that combines simplicity with powerful features and puts the human front and centre.”
Ted Persson, partner, EQT Ventures, added: “At such a dynamic time for the world of work, practically every organisation is approaching hybrid and remote working in its own way. All of us at EQT Ventures are real believers in the power of Superlist and are excited to see the team continuing to innovate in this space as it grows and develops.”
