Throughout time, humans have proven to be inherently creative problem solvers – driven to create, collaborate, and innovate to solve the challenges that face us. But, sometimes, the solutions can be hard to find, obscured by siloed thinking or stifled by technology and tools that restrict imagination or fall short at truly connecting people. We started designing Miro over 10 years ago to answer the need for a better way to collaborate, envisioning an infinite canvas that could help teams uncover and visualize the next BIG idea with the power to have a meaningful impact.
Since then, this vision has rapidly become more relevant and urgent. Remote work is our new normal, distributed and hybrid teams dominate the workplace, and organizations around the world are looking for solutions that can bring everyone to the creative table – from within and outside the physical room.
Miro’s unprecedented growth speaks to the urgency with which businesses are redefining the way they work. In the last 20 months, our user count has grown from 5 million to more than 30 million, and 99% of Fortune 100 companies now use Miro. We’re thrilled that these companies have chosen Miro and our number one priority is to ensure that our platform is evolving to support their long-term success.
The category of visual collaboration that Miro pioneered is a mission-critical technology for any enterprise that seeks to drive more effective and productive collaboration and innovation. At Miro, we are ready to answer that need.
Today, I’m excited to announce that Miro has raised a $400 Million Series C round of investment capital that will allow us to continue to help organizations and enterprises unlock creativity, increase productivity, strengthen collaboration, and rapidly innovate. Investors in the Series C round include ICONIQ Growth, Accel, Atlassian, Dragoneer, GIC, Salesforce Ventures, and TCV. This represents a significant round of funding by a company in the collaboration space and illustrates the enormous opportunity we have to revolutionize the workplace.
I’d like to extend our most sincere thanks to all of our users and customers for believing in our vision and joining us on this journey. Customer obsession is at the heart of everything we do at Miro, and as we strategically deploy this capital we’ll be keeping our users’ needs large and bold in the middle of our Miro boards to ensure that we continue to deliver a product and experience that has immense value.
Since my earliest days as an entrepreneur, I’ve always believed that the whiteboard is where the true magic in a business happens. The whiteboard is where individuals become a team, where ideas become a reality, and where anything is possible. This passion and vision are shared with a team of extremely talented people that now number more than 1,200 across 11 Miro hubs. I want to take a moment to thank every Mironeer for their focus and commitment. As a team, we have worked hard to make the infinite collaborative canvas a reality, and this new round of funding will create countless opportunities to put our shared values into action, introducing a new way of working and collaborating to millions more people.
And, as we enter this new chapter of our business, we are always looking for talented, driven, and passionate new Mironeers to join our team. If you’d like a seat on our rocketship to help design the future of work, check out career opportunities at Miro.
I truly believe the “Miro way” will be the spark that enables teams to transform imagination into execution and opportunity into impact. And, we are just getting started.
