Scribe, a San Francisco, CA-based productivity platform for digital know-how, raised $30m in funding.

The $30m funding included a $22M Series A and a previously unannounced $8M seed round. The Series A was led by Tiger Global Management, with participation from previous investors. This includes Amplify Partners, who led the seed, along with Haystack Ventures, XYZ Ventures, AME Cloud Ventures, Morado Ventures, and SEV. Prominent angels John Thompson (former chairman of Microsoft), Scott Belsky (Chief Product Officer at Adobe), Nick Mehta (CEO of Gainsight) and Eric Wu (CEO of Opendoor) are also investors in Scribe. As part of the financing, Amplify Partners’ General Partner Mike Dauber is joining the Scribe board of directors.

The company will use the funding to scale its team and invest in the next wave of R&D and product development of the platform.

Led by Jennifer Smith, CEO and co-founder, Scribe lets users share how work is done, enabling anyone to automatically create step-by-step guides for any process. The platform captures and shares knowledge workers’ “know-how,” building more productive and collaborative organizations and communities.

Scribe allows team members to:

  • Enjoy work through instant access to clear, functional materials (no more out-of-date wikis or stale documentation),
  • Shave hours off of traditional means of documenting workflows, with most Scribe guides created and finalized in under a minute,
  • Gain recognition for their contributions.

It is used by teams across tens of thousands of organizations, ranging from technology startup unicorns like Human Interest to Fortune 500 companies like LinkedIn.
