Ones to watch: Slab raise $2.2M to take on internal employee information storing


As companies grow it becomes increasingly difficult to track the most important information internally. Slab is a new company that’s looking to build a better way to store company knowledge internally.The company describes itself “Your team’s long-term memory – a modern wiki with thoughtful UX, smart search, and integrations that helps your team find answers faster.”

This week the company announced it has raised $2.2 million in a new financing round from NEA, Charles River Ventures and Matrix Partners.

Slab aims to reduce the time employees spend searching for lost documents by searching deep within itself including histories, comments, attachments, embeds, across integrations such as Slack messages, Github pull requests, Asana tasks—even public websites linked from Slab.
