Claap, a Paris, France-based provider of an asynchronous meeting platform, raised $3m in pre-seed funding.
Backers included LocalGlobe, Headline and angels including Front co-founder Mathilde Collin, Oyster co-founder Tony Jamous, Nest and GoCardless founder Matt Robinson and Automattic’s head of product Aadil Mamujee.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop the platform.
Founded by Robin Bonduelle and Pierre Touzeau, Claap is an asynchronous meeting platform, allowing teams to share updates, get feedback and solve problems without the need to be in the same room or on constant video calls.
Instead of spending all day in back-to-back video calls, Claap allows employees to record a short video update on a topic, such as a product iteration, give feedback around a specific development by commenting on the relevant part, and set a due date for team members to respond. Colleagues can view the video and respond to the points in their own time.
