Skiff raises $10.5 million Series A
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re furthering Skiff’s mission to make collaboration usable, private, and decentralized with the completion of a $10.5 million Series A funding round led by Sequoia Capital.
Our Series A followed a $4.2 million seed round, also led by Sequoia. We’re incredibly excited to welcome a diverse group of angel investors with deep expertise in the domains of privacy and decentralization: John Lilly, former CEO of Mozilla, Balaji Srinivasan, former CTO of Coinbase, Gaby Goldberg, a crypto investor at TCG, and Albert Ni, from Dropbox and the Ethereum Foundation.
“Our digital lives should be as private as our physical lives. Recent events underscore the importance of products that are fully private and where users own their own data,” said Konstantine Buhler, partner at Sequoia. “Skiff is building an amazing team and visionary products to lead this moment. We couldn’t be more excited to double down.”
Skiff offers a completely private, end-to-end encrypted workspace ideal for teams that want full control over their own data. Everything from building a personal knowledge base to writing collaborative meeting notes is done in complete privacy. No one, not even Skiff, can ever see the title, content, or description of a user’s document.
In addition to end-to-end encryption of all their data, Skiff users have the option to leverage the fully decentralized Interplanetary File System (IPFS). Account creation and document sharing can also be completed using a decentralized, self-managed crypto identity, such as an Ethereum wallet.
Skiff is actively recruiting talented people who are motivated to help bring about our vision of secure, private, decentralized collaboration.
