by

Airspeed, an innovative network that connects and celebrates employees, received a $5 million Series Seed round of fundraising today. Greylock Partners and Venrock led the investment, with Salesforce Ventures, Next Play Ventures, and a number of renowned CEOs and executives also participating as angel investors.

Airspeed also acquired a $2.5M financing line from Western Technology Investment in addition to the cash investment.

The concept for Airspeed was born during the COVID-19 pandemic, as transformations to the future of work accelerated.

Camplejohn, who previously served as GM of Sales Cloud at Salesforce, began to think critically in 2020 about how to build connection between remote team members and maintain a system of record for key cultural moments.

“Given the rapid changes in the modern workplace, employee engagement and culture is of critical importance,” said David Thacker, General Partner at Greylock.

Airspeed’s products provide a much-needed solution to help create a connected and engaged workforce, an essential ingredient for any high-performing organization.

Airspeed’s Slack applications are available now through the Airspeed website and the Slack App Directory. In this Early Access period (through the end of the year), all applications are free. Once pricing is announced, a free forever tier will remain, and pricing for the entire family of apps will be on par with buying a single function Slack app.

During the COVID-19 epidemic, as transitions to the future of work advanced, the concept for Airspeed was conceived.
