Announcing our Investment in Text Blaze

By Vinay Iyengar and Villi Iltchev on May 5, 2021

We are thrilled to announce that we are leading Text Blaze’s $3.3m seed round along with participation from our friends at Susa Ventures and amazing angels like Hubspot co-founder Dharmesh Shah. 

We first encountered the Text Blaze product as users; we frequently find ourselves typing the same phrases over and over and were compelled by Text Blaze’s easy-to-use Chrome extension to insert programmable text snippets anywhere on the web. However, after our first meeting with Dan Barak and Scott Fortmann-Roe, we knew that Text Blaze was not just a text expander tool, but a workflow automation product with far-reaching potential. 

After spending several years building sales and support tooling at Google, Dan and Scott stumbled upon a core thesis that modern teams want their own custom workflows and automations. Much like Zapier in the early days, we are excited about Text Blaze’s prosumer-oriented platform approach that allows users the flexibility to customize complex automations and integrations between various SaaS applications. What started as a side project has now grown organically to over 20,000 daily active users from a diverse set of customers. From customer support teams answering queries to doctors automating entry of medical notes, we believe Text Blaze is saving users time and money and allowing them to focus on the things that matter most.

We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Dan and Scott on their mission to democratize productivity. Let’s blaze!
