The Org raises $20 million to build a network of organization charts for public and private companies
The Org, a New York-based tech startup that is building organization charts for public and private companies, announced today it has raised $20 million in Series B funding to shift into the second phase of their product; grow their team in New York, Copenhagen, and elsewhere; and gain 10x new users and adoption once again.
The round, which was led by Tiger Global, was also joined by Series A investors Sequoia, Founders Fund, and Balderton Capital, as well as new faces joining, including Thursday Ventures, Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Neeraj Arora, Gavin Baker, and others.
Founded in 2017 by Andreas Jarbøl and Christian Wylonis, The Org is a network of public org charts for employees at fast-growing startups. Its mission is to make organizations more transparent and understand more about their own companies and the people in them. The startup also follows companies to stay updated on personnel changes, new hires, and promotions. The Org is backed by Silicon Valley heavyweights including Sequoia, Tiger Global, Founders Fund, and Balderton.
The Org currently has a network of 130,000 public org charts. The startup is taking the traditional organizational chart and is turning it into an interactive tool for collaboration, adding a professional profile that connects all individuals and teams in one transparent network and real-time professional map of work. Their vision is to build the platform for work powered by a global network of public org charts.
The Org has grown significantly since their Series A. In summer 2021, nearly two million professionals used The Org and 5,000 new companies joined. Early adopters like Dbt Labs, Contentful, and Deel have grown on the platform from small startups into newly minted unicorns while hiring and organizing their growing teams using the platform.
Now, The Org plans to double the team focusing on product, distribution, and monetization. They will expand their offices and move beyond New York and Copenhagen. They plan on growing from 30,000 daily users to over 300,000, becoming an indispensable tool that top high-growth startups in the U.S. and internationally will use to navigate the hour-by-hour complexities and relationships of work.
