Founded in 2004 in Japan, Nulab creates productivity software used by over 4 million people in over 190 countries. The company’s products include online project management and bug tracking software Backlog, the cloud-based diagramming software Cacoo, and the chat app Typetalk.
Recently, the company has secured $5 million(approx €4.5 million) led by venture capital firms NOW, Inc., XTech Ventures, Inc., and Shinsei Corporate Investment Limited.
Nulab’s Co-founder Shinsuke Tabata:
We are honored to have these industry leaders on board. It’s inspiring to know they believe in our company and share our vision to revolutionize how people work together.
With this investment, the company plans to leverage the funding to continue its growth and become more competitive in the collaboration software industry. Furthermore, the Nulab will develop “Nulab Pass,” a new security product for Backlog, Cacoo, and Typetalk.
With offices in New York, Amsterdam, Singapore, and Japan, Nulab creates collaboration software that helps international teams of all sizes: from a few people to hundreds of employees working in different departments and time zones.
After enabling support for WebAuthn the past July, Nulab is now preparing to implement single sign-on (SSO) via a SAML Authentication for all its software. Users will be able to quickly and safely sign in to multiple applications with just one ID and password.
Mr. Tabata commented:
We are excited to continue creating software that helps teams break down communication barriers and organizations understand better progress towards their objectives. We aim to make collaboration smarter and more efficient. If you collaborate better, you innovate faster.
