Mighty is the only work technology platform that builds directly from team workflows to focus on business results and people's growth

FREMONT, CA: Mighty, the work technology platform built to lead remote and cross-functional teams, raised $4.3 million in seed venture funding from Slack Fund, GSV Ventures, Origin Ventures, Album VC, Acadian Ventures, and Village Global.

Top 10 Workforce Management Solution Companies - 2020Mighty converts detailed individual workflows from the tools people use into automated, dynamic teamwork timelines. It allows anyone to follow and see where teams are focused, and managers can utilize it efficiently to maintain alignment, keep leadership informed, and identify opportunities for recognition and coaching.

"The future of work is remote, cross-functional, and dynamic, and it demands a new level of cohesion, awareness, and visibility inside organizations," said Brent Alvord, co-founder, and CEO. "Work and people get buried under layers of tools and hidden by cross-functional or remote activities. Teams spend hours each week in meetings or wading through detailed project management systems to address this today. It's taxing for everyone, but particularly managers, who are not just trying to guide work, but also coach people and keep executives informed. Mighty is working to automate many of those efforts so managers can lead with insight and confidence, and teams can focus on what matters. We're excited to come out of beta soon and help organizations succeed in this environment."

Mighty builds directly from workflows in tools such as Jira, Asana, and Slack to help lead teams, coach people, and keep everyone informed. Features include:

• Team Lens - Mighty automatically captures workstreams from their tools to show where teams are focused, keeping everyone informed and in sync, no matter how they're organized.

• Initiative Lens - Tag any work with an initiative, and Mighty groups it into that lens for anyone to see what work is happening across teams based on priorities.

• Team Impact - Mighty prompts recognition on work, consolidating it into team timelines directly connected to work, helping people encourage each other, and allowing leaders to recognize work that's typically hidden from their view.

• Personal Timelines - Automatically capture and organizes an individual's contributions, initiatives impacted, and recognition received into public or private timelines. It allows people to ask for peer feedback on actual work, have more informed 1:1s and performance discussions, and get the credit they deserve.

"Mighty is a natural investment for the Slack Fund, as both organizations believe the future of work revolves around collaborative systems that drive team engagement and alignment," said Jason Spinell, Director of the Slack Fund. "Through their integration with the Slack Platform we have seen firsthand the power of integrating teams, company priorities and employee recognition in Slack channels, and look forward to helping Mighty transform the way people collaborate on a broader scale."
