NAME OF STARTUP: Workast – The project management app for Slack teams
FOUNDER: Guillermo Gette
THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:
Task management for in-office and remote teams
THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:
I started Workast as a native integration for Slack. The company and product grew around this core vision: help teams on Slack manage their work.
So we did things a bit differently: 1. Once you install the Workast app in your Slack team, everyone can start using it, no extra sign-up, login, additional passwords to remember, or invitations. It just works!
2. We don’t send you emails, we actually send you notifications within Slack, so we help you reduce the noise in your inbox. These notifications are interactive, so you can quickly take action on important messages.
3. Workast is customizable and flexible so we can accommodate any kind of team, from software engineers to marketing managers, legal, HR, and finance. They can all collaborate in Workast and customize their projects to their needs.
WHO IS THE CUSTOMER: What is the typical profile of your target customer? Where would they be located?:
Project managers, small & large businesses, agencies, professional services, dev teams, lawyers, schools, nonprofits, students, and more.
