Evernote, a Redwood City, California-based provider of productive tools with offices in nine countries and more than 100 million users worldwide, received a $20m investment from Nikkei, Inc.
The two companies also announced a partnership to expand Evernote’s new Context feature with editorial content from Nikkei. The integration, expected to launch in early 2015, works to display relevant articles in real time to create a digital workspace that informs and supports users as they accomplish their work.
Led by CEO Phil Libin, Evernote provides apps and products for today’s workspace. Developed by the company’s Augmented Intelligence team, Context uses advanced algorithms to actively display relevant content based on what a person is working on at the moment. That content can include notes from already completed work, recent related articles from several sources, and profiles of people related to the topic.
Launched initially in October with English language support for Evernote for Mac and iOS with Android and Windows support expected to follow, Context is available to all Evernote Premium and Evernote Business subscribers.
