Accel Partners-backed OSlash, a SaaS startup working to facilitate cross-sharing of information in a workplace, has raised $5 Mn in a post-seed funding round from more than 40 operators.
These include Kunal Shah (CEO, CRED), Akshay Kothari (COO, Notion), Cristina Cordova (Partner, First Round), Christian Oestlien (VP Product, YouTube) along with other investors from the industry.
The company is valued at $50 million with this fundraising. Last year in September, the startup raised $2.5 million from Accel Partners and several prominent angel investors.
The startup plans to use the funds to set up hiring in USA and Europe and grow its universal search tool that pulls together information from disparate applications.
“It’s great to have onboard top executives from companies we love. Their expertise in SaaS definitely lends itself to a better product for everyone,” said, Ankit Pansari, CEO of Oslash.
San Francisco and Bangalore-based startup was founded in 2020 by Ankit Pansari and Shoaib Khan, It is an enterprise productivity tool that enables employees to access information across the organization using everyday keywords. Naming URLs and files – a common practice across LinkedIn, Google and Meta – creates a single source of truth for everything, helping teams collaborate seamlessly.
“The power to index links and retrieve information quickly is crucial for organizations that want to scale. I’m excited for OSlash to become the de-facto way employees at every company keep information at their fingertips”, said, Kevin Weil, ex-head of product at Instagram, Twitter, and early investor at OSlash.
The company said OSlash is also building out Universal Search on its platform, which will allow employees to search for information within their workplace by simply typing a question into Google.
OSlash is currently used by over 3,000 teams including CRED, Khan Academy and Twitch.
