Taskade, a Startup Collaboration Tool Founded by YC Grad, John Xie Raises $5M, Giving Notion a Run for The Money

October 29, 2019 – Taskade is a comprehensive collaboration tool that facilitates competitiveness in startup and organizational teams in the maddening modern environment. Taskade’s primary function is to cut down the irregularities and abrasions that incur during planning and decision-making – so that teams get to focus on task executions. John Xie is a YC Grad, and the Founder of Taskade –  Notion, Slack, and Asana inspired his company.

Helming Taskade, the young entrepreneur raised $5 million by creating an efficient collaborative productivity platform, taking Notion by its horns. The $5 million is seed funding from Grishin Robotics and Y Combinator. While John Xie says that Taskade is the love child of Notion, Slack, and Asana, the mission is to outdo the ones that inspired him. The seed funding will be channeled into building Taskade’s product as time progresses – the strategic decision is contained in prudent financial management.

Striving to provide solutions for a whole lot of teamwork impediments in a streamlined fashion whereby tasks, notes, and communication are pooled at a single place, Taskade revolutionizes team productivity – making things move together faster and smarter. In re-visualizing databases in tables or Kanban products effortlessly, Taskade does take after Notion. But, Taskade has been able to build a framework that provides a tool with heightened collaborative power. As a result, Taskade is fast making headway, and the raising of the $5 million in seeding fund materialized.

It is an age where ‘consumerization of the enterprise’ is a trend that investors are keen on. Enterprise software tool startups are spawning as a natural result – Taskade is no different. Built to organize tasks arrangements within projects, Taskade’s platform is a fashionable one, but having the capacity of being mainstream. Taskade has its limitations, projects are curtailed to only one database each, but this is a desirable strategy where confusion and clutter are averted.

What John Xie did to surpass Notion is simplifying Taskade and make it more workspace-driven so that multiple team collaboration is possible – the platform is available on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and the web.

The Taskade team has only six employees as of now, and they are organized remotely. But, they are confident of gaining business mileage organically by building a customer base and transitioning to a usage-based free model.
