We have had the opportunity to tell you about Teambox (teambox.com) on multiple occasions. For those who do not know it, it is an elegant collaboration and communication platform for professional environments that has three different plans. The first is free for professional environments of up to five people, the paid versions have unlimited capacity both in hosting with the creation of projects, with the integration of chat and cloud storage services of Dropbox, Box and Google Drive, among other advantages.
All of its characteristics have allowed it to experience strong sales and customer growth, with monthly income growing over 1273% in the last two years, as announced by the company in a press release, where it highlights the new round of financing received from $ 5 million Series A led by Avalon Ventures. In this way, the total financing received rises to 7 million dollars, counting on the original investors from angel investors, including Data Collective Fund, Pat Matthews, or David Popowitz, among others.
According to Rich Levandov, belonging to Avalon Ventures:
As investments, we seek to support companies with surprising ideas that make organizations leaner, more creative and productive (…) Teambox has a great product, a strategy that allows it to stand out among its competitors and is seeing significant pull thanks to its sales model.
