Spot Raises $5.5M in Seed Funding

Spot, a Seattle, WA-based provider of a communications platform, raised $5.5M in seed funding.

The round was led by Freestyle with additional investors, including Liquid 2 Ventures, Community Access Fund, and Founder’s Co-Op participating.

The company plans to use the funding to double down on technical capabilities, expand the team and attract more users.

Established by Outreach co-founders, Gordon Hempton and Wes Hather, Spot helps high-performing organizations communicate effectively while enhancing team experience, building company culture, improving retention, and amplifying productivity. Teams can communicate within the platform using virtual avatars in a branded office setting while accessing a comprehensive team chat and video conferencing, a more integrated solution compared to Slack, Discord, and Teams. The platform combines a personal metaverse experience with enterprise-grade communication tools and provides a comprehensive solution to remote workforce challenges.

With Spot, organizations can build their own virtual customizable workspace that easily reflects the company’s brand and culture. Team members can host meetings, share screens, collaborate instantly, or start a conversation just by interacting with the avatars in the space. Communication is organized with channels, threads, direct messages, and reactions seamlessly integrated into one easy-to-utilize solution.

Spot is used by teams from companies including Google, Apple, GoGlobal, and Change Stage.
