YC grad Taskade raises $5M to take on Notion with a more collaborative productivity platform

It’s a tool for startup teams to collaborate around projects that can be re-organized based on how the individual user best works through tasks.

The startup graduated from YC in the most recent batch and has now locked down $5 million in seed funding from Grishin Robotics and Y Combinator, Taskade CEO John Xie tells TechCrunch.

Taskade’s platform is organized around tasks arranged inside projects.

The collaboration is another distinguishing factor of the platform, the team has built a commenting stream that lives inside each project so that a project can have its own ongoing dialogue without forcing users into another Slack channel.

The team at Taskade is still quite small, there are just 6 employees at the company right now organized remotely, but the focus is on using this funding to build out the product over time rather than pumping cash into sales and marketing, Xie tells me.
