LiveMinutes, the real-time team collaboration service, announced the closing of a $1.4M seed round led by Great Oaks VC and including notable investors like New World Ventures, Ali Rosenthal, and Sam Yagan. Unlike any other productivity app, LiveMinutes offers a single real-time collaboration platform that includes project management, document editing, and web conferencing.
'LiveMinutes adds real-time collaboration to Evernote's business collaboration features,' says Rafe Needleman, Evernote's Director of Developer Relations. 'It lets colleagues edit notes in real-time, host conference calls, and save everything back on Evernote to get the most of Evernote. LiveMinutes makes teamwork better for their users and ours.'
LiveMinutes users create a workspace in the app, invite their colleagues, and start collaborating on a project, either asynchronously by leaving comments, or synchronously by launching a conference call. Typical use cases include small start-ups, cross-functional projects in large enterprises, freelancers, and distributed teams working on digital content.
'Our team members are located around the world and are constantly traveling, making real-time communication and productivity a real challenge,' says Starbucks VP Nicolas Bernadi. 'We use LiveMinutes to stay in perfect synch. I love their concept of workspace, where we keep project content centralized, edit it in real-time, and send notifications to all stakeholders.'
As a pure HTML5 platform, LiveMinutes runs in any browser with no installation. Teams can start a conference call from their browser, Skype, or even get called on their mobile phone. 'Modern teams keep their to-do lists in Basecamp, files on Google Docs, and calls on Skype. LiveMinutes is rewriting enterprise collaboration into a single layer that integrates with great platforms like Evernote or DropBox,' says Kemal El Moujahid, Co-Founder & CEO.
LiveMinutes is backed by leading investors, including Great Oaks VC (backers of Trulia, OkCupid). 'I love investing in disruptive companies. Once companies try LiveMinutes they will never go back to plain old screen sharing, web conferencing or tracking changes,' says Sam Yagan, a LiveMinutes board member.
