We’re beyond excited to announce that Asana has raised a $75M Series D round of funding led by Generation Investment Management. Generation is a London-based asset manager, co-founded by Al Gore in 2004 to prove the case for sustainable investing. Colin le Duc, one of the firm’s other co-founders and partners, will join our board of directors. Existing investors 8VC, Founders Fund, Sam Altman, and Dustin also participated in the round.

What’s next?

We know you rely on Asana to help your team accomplish more with less effort, and this new capital will help us build an even more useful product for you, your team, and your entire organization. We’re already developing exciting new features to help you better visualize your team’s work and manage it with less effort—stay tuned for the first of many exciting announcements this year. And we want you to be able to use Asana comfortably and productively, no matter where you are: We recently launched the Asana product and customer experience in German and French; we’ll have Spanish and Portuguese versions next month and Japanese later this year.

To give you the best product and customer experience possible, we’re also hiring a world-class team across the globe. Our leadership continues to grow: recently, Alex Hood, previously VP of Product at Intuit, joined Asana to lead our product organization; Eve Saltman, previously at GoPro, joined to head legal; and Dave King, previously at Salesforce, joined to lead marketing. We’re hiring for many roles, and designing the culture with the same loving care we bring to designing the product.

Thank you, our Community, for helping us make this milestone possible! It’s people like you, our Asana superstars around the world, who give meaning to our work and help us take the product to new heights.

YAYYY! I popped in here looking for a topic about it. That’s HUGE HUGE news I’m very happy to see Asana’s growth. Our company went through this a few years ago.

Interested to see what the new leadership brings and pushes forward for this year =)
