I’m excited to announce that Miro has acquired Freehand, the visual collaboration platform.
At Miro, we believe that organizations on the forefront of innovation are radically focused on accelerating time to market and ensuring continuous alignment with customer needs and company strategy.
More than 60 million users and 200,000+ organizations worldwide count on Miro to develop strategy, design new products and services, and manage processes through the entire innovation lifecycle.
As part of today’s announcement, Jeff Chow, former Freehand Chief Product Officer and recently promoted InVision CEO, will join Miro as the company’s new Chief Product & Technology Officer, along with much of the cross-functional team supporting Freehand — bringing together top talent in the visual and innovation collaboration space to build stronger products and drive better outcomes for customers.
Over the last few years, we’ve made significant investments at Miro to help teams drive innovation at scale. Some of these developments include robust diagramming capabilities, support for agile practices, Miro Assist, Talktrack, and deeper integrations. And there’s so much more ahead.
The Freehand team shares our passion for solving the hardest problems in collaboration in ways that have a meaningful impact on our customers’ ability to execute swiftly and efficiently. We are excited to bring these two teams together, and for Jeff’s leadership as we continue to imagine the future of collaboration technology.
Nothing is changing for Freehand customers today. The products that you use and love will continue to be the same — only now strengthened by the partnership with Miro to help us deliver an even better experience moving forward. Over the coming months, we will bring Miro and Freehand closer together to unlock powerful workflows and create more value for our customers.
We are thankful to you, our customers, for your support and look forward to keeping you updated as things progress.
Here’s to an exciting future together!
