Grain, a startup building tech for virtual meetings, recently raised $16 million in a Series A funding round backed by Slack, Zoom, and Tiger Global Management.
Founded in 2018 by brothers Mike and Jake Adams, the San Francisco-based firm raised funds amid the ongoing explosion of remote-work platforms like Microsoft Teams and Zoom as white-collar workers switch between remote and in-office work.
Grain’s plug-in allows users to automatically record Zoom meetings, take notes, and transcribe conversations. The firm’s software also allows users to skim through recordings and slice recordings up into short-form presentations, and share them with others.
Citing predictions from market research firm Gartner that 75% of work conversations will be recorded by 2025, Slack Fund’s Jason Spinell said Grain well-positioned for the future.
“Slack and Grain share the same ethos in making meetings more efficient and productive,” he said.
Alongside the likes of Slack and Zoom, Grain’s Series A included backing from Unusual Ventures, Freestyle VC, and Peterson Ventures.
