Founded in 2013 by co-founder and CEO Mathilde Collin, Front transforms the inbox into a flexible platform where knowledge workers can organize communication, get context for decisions, and take action faster with their teams. In Front, all work communication — emails, texts, direct messages, etc. — is centralized in one place. With mentions, assignments, shared inboxes, and visibility into who is working on what, teams get a shared perspective for handling conversations together. The platform is used by more than 5,500 businesses including MailChimp, Shopify and Stripe, and others in many industry verticals including professional and financial services, logistics, customer success, or startup companies.
