Seva, a NYC-based knowledge management and search platform, raised $2.4M in seed funding.
The round was led by Avalon Ventures, with participation from Studio VC and Datadog founder and CEO Olivier Pomel.
The company intends to use the funds to grow its engineering capabilities.
Founded in 2017 by CEO Sanjay Jain, who was previously co-founder & CTO at Pictela (acquired by AOL) and CTO at Simulmedia, Seva enables modern knowledge workers to find, share, and organize the information they need to work faster and more efficiently.
The platform offers setup into Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Slack, JIRA, Confluence, and more to unify search capabilities and manage information across these platforms. A newly released “Topics” functionality allows users to organize content around common entities, such as customers and initiatives, making it easy to ensure teams are always equipped with the correct content when they need it most.
Seva is currently accepting companies into its Beta. Soon to come enhancements include contextual recommendations, on-the-go content notifications through a mobile app, and new integrations into Office 365 and Salesforce.
The company also added Peter Giordano as COO, responsible for early go-to-market and customer growth.
