Slite, which develops a collaboration software platform, has raised $4.4 million in funding led by Index Ventures.
The Paris-based company launched via the eFounders startup programme last year and recently participated in Y Combinator.
The startup said it is developing an alternative to Google Docs and Evernote that’s targeted at teams for collaborating on content, taking cues from Slack’s approach. It’s currently being used by 250 different teams.
“We are often told that Slack is the ideal companion for team-based chat and that Slite does the same for content collaboration,” said CEO Christophe Pasquier. “Our goal is to transform the ways teams write and share content by leveraging the familiarity of note-taking. Through its modern simplicity and design, Slite is fully in line with and enables evolving working habits: remote, transparency and asynchronism.”
As part of the investment, Index’s principal Ari Helgason will be joining the board.
