Voodle, a Seattle, WA-based asynchronous short video platform purpose-built for remote teams and the new workplace, raised $6m in funding.
The round was led by Madrona Venture Group and Vulcan Capital with participation from M12, Cisco Investments and Hearst Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to drive product innovation and expand its headcount – including executive leadership, sales, marketing, and engineering – as well as grow native customer segments, including the support for key tech industry roles, such as management, sales, customer relations, human resources and more.
Led by Forest Key, CEO and Founder, Voodle is a short video app for business teams to capture, share and discover important business moments as they happen where they work – home, office, or on the road.
Using the platform across web, iOS and Android – or by integrating Voodle with other work platforms such as Slack, Salesforce or Hubspot – teams can quickly capture and share short video updates, insights and ideas that convey a sense of context and emotion.
Since its launch in June, the app has gained traction with tech startup customers such as Mystery, Leasable, Killer Visual Strategies, Loopie and others to enhance team alignment and engagement throughout the pandemic. In September, the company introduced a free stand alone web application and added support for Android devices, making it compatible with all major mobile platforms. Voodle has also enhanced key features, including AI-powered search capability, allowing team members to instantly discover and respond to relevant business conversations, information and insights.
