Seva Raises Seed Financing to Change How Knowledge Workers Search for Information

Seva, a New York City-based provider of a modern day knowledge management and search platform, has raised $2.4 million in seed financing led by Avalon Ventures.  Other investors include Studio VC and Datadog founder and CEO Olivier Pomel.

Founded in 2017 by CEO Sanjay Jain, who was previously co-founder & CTO at Pictela (acquired by AOL) and CTO at Simulmedia, the company  aims to change how knowledge workers find and organize information across their rapidly growing work "stack.”

According to Seva, the modern knowledge worker can use more than 16 applications at work and can spend almost a day a week searching for and verifying information.  From email to chat to documentation management platforms and more, valuable company knowledge has become severely fragmented across applications, teams, and silos throughout the organization. As a result employees find it hard to search for and organize the information they need to work efficiently.

Seva says its platform offers a simple one-click setup into Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Slack, JIRA, Confluence, and other applications to unify search capabilities and manage information across these platforms.  In addition, a newly released "topics" functionality allows users to organize content around common entities, such as customers and initiatives, making it easy to ensure teams are always equipped with the correct content when they need it most.

Seva is currently accepting companies into its beta. Planned enhancements include powerful contextual recommendations, on-the-go content notifications through a mobile app, and new integrations into Office 365 and Salesforce.

In addition to this round of funding, which will be used to grow engineering, the company also announced that Peter Giordano has joined as COO, responsible for early go-to-market and customer growth. Giordano comes from Simulmedia, where he served as SVP of sales operations and strategy.
