The company has developed a flexible assistant service platform now used by 400 customers in USA and France
Double, a NYC-based flexible assistant service for executives and their teams, raised $8.5m in Series A funding.
The round, which brings Double’s total funds raised to $15m, was led by Daphni, with participation from existing investors Index Ventures and FJ Labs and new investors Teamworthy, Eurazeo, Le Fonds, and Forefront, as well as more than 20 current customers.
The company intends to use the funds to focus on accelerating growth, innovating productivity automation, and scaling operations.
Founded in 2018 by Alice Default and Christophe Lamperti, Double connects executives with experienced part-time assistants and delegation tools so they can save time and stay focused. Double assistants are local, vetted, and highly skilled. Whether a professional needs help with email, scheduling meetings, managing contacts or more, the app makes it easy to delegate those tasks.
Double has more than 400 customers throughout the US and France, including Contentsquare, Aircall, Mural, Hungryroot, and Daring Foods, that use it to manage everything from calendar management and inbox organization to employee recruiting and event planning.
