Air launches signature platform after raising $6 million in funding
Air, a workplace collaboration tool, has raised $6 million funding to date with the goal of building brands replacement cloud storage solutions.
Lerer Hippeau is the lead and is joined by RedSea Ventures, Advancit Capital, WndrCo, and a group of strategic advisors including the former Head of Business Operations at Dropbox (ChenLi Wang), former VP of Product at Dropbox (Todd Jackson), and Head of Sales at Figma and former Global Partnerships at Dropbox (Kyle Parrish).
This announcement also marks the launch of Air's end-to-end software product designed to help the 700 million "communicators" that work in fields like marketing, sales, and partnerships.
Using Air, teams optimize their creative process: importing thousands of images and videos from Dropbox or Google Drive on sign up, giving back on average four hours of their workday.
Manual tasks are replaced with automated structure, and seamless workflow tools enable sharing, commenting, and instant collaboration.
"Building this product has been an ambitious undertaking and we're thrilled to have a team of investors and advisors that believe in our long term vision. Today, every company is a media company and teams of all sizes need space to think creatively. Air dramatically improves the way people work," says Shane Hegde, CEO and co-founder of Air.
Since launching their closed, invite-only pilot in 2019, Air has grown to manage over 5M digital assets for brand- forward businesses around the globe.
The product is referred to as a "whiteboard for the creative process" as it immediately increases productivity for end users like brand marketing managers, content coordinators, and social media managers. The product currently serves over 100 teams in consumer products, goods and services, sports, media, retail, and hospitality.
