Tango, a Los Angeles, CA-based workflow intelligence platform that streamlines the process of creating documentation, raised $5.7M in seed funding.
The round was led by Wing Venture Capital with participation from General Catalyst, GSV Ventures, Outsiders Fund, and Red Sea Ventures, as well as angel investors Michael Stoppelman (former Senior Vice President of Engineering at Yelp), Jai Ranganathan (former Head of Data at Uber), Shoaib Makani (CEO of KeepTruckin), and Julia Lipton (Awesome People Ventures).
Led by Co-founders Dan Giovacchini, Ken Babcock, and Brian Shultz, Tango provides a workflow intelligence platform to get insights for organizations to standardize best practices, onboard and train new hires quickly, and improve employee performance. Its Chrome Extension integrates with existing tools to automatically capture a workflow real-time, in the flow of work. The end result is a step-by-step how-to guide without the time or performance art required for video recording. Tango transcribes actions, URLs, and screenshots and provides instantaneous documentation easily exported into commonly used platforms.
Tango’s pilots have focused primarily on Operations teams. Departments within Operations, such as Customer Support and Sales, require constant training due to employee turnover, highly distributed or remote team structures, and evolving internal and external processes.
Since fundraising in September 2020, Tango’s team has grown to thirteen full-time team members, with plans to expand their product and growth teams. In addition, Tango will continue developing its workflow intelligence platform to change how workforces coach and upskill their team members.
Tango will be available in its first public beta in late September and will be free to use.
