Supernotes, an exciting new London-based productivity startup raises £150k
Supernotes, the new social note-taking and knowledge sharing platform has raised £150k in a pre-seed funding round led by Flamefinch Partners. The funding will go towards growing the core community of users and accelerating their fast pace of development.
Founded in 2018 in London by two recent graduates, Tobias Whetton and Connor Neblett, they set out to build a knowledge management solution that is an extension of how our brain works.
Flamefinch Partners, an advisory and investment practice based in London, have been following the productivity space which is growing at 16.5% CAGR*. David Walsh, Managing Partner said:
“Although we’ve had computers for a long time, digital note taking hasn’t progressed much beyond its pen-and-paper counterpart. The problem is that the fundamental format hasn’t really changed — notes are taken in long-form documents, burying information in a mass of text in a mess of files. This makes it difficult to find what you need, when you need it.”
“These documents can be easy to share but hard to collaborate on effectively, as every collaborator has their own way of organising information. Additionally, the experience is not optimised for mobile, a format that is being used more and more for learning. Supernotes is a solution to these problems and delivers a truly collaborative note-taking experience.”
Doing away with these long-form documents and a mess folders, the co-founders of Supernotes invented a brand new format, the notecard. This helps their users to link thoughts, ideas, and knowledge together while seamlessly collaborating with others in real-time.
Supernotes launched to the public in April 2020 and quickly became a favourite among students and professionals, with over 10,000 users around the world. Whetton explains,
“We could never have imagined the impact that Supernotes would have. From helping students to stay connected with their classmates and achieving first-class remote degrees, to inspiring those staying at home to share their reading lists, workout routines, and recipes with friends and family.”
Supernotes is at the fore-front of a new generation of productivity apps, and they will be looking to raise further funding later this year to build out their B2B offering. For more information please contact [email protected]
