Ayoa, an intelligent digital workspace for remote teams to manage meetings, build plans, and action tasks, has successfully secured its initial £1 million funding target through its equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs. The campaign, which launched last month, has attracted more than 430 Seedrs investors. Ayoa is offering 10.09% in equity at an £8,909,600 pre-money valuation.
As previously reported, Ayoa claims to be the first all-in-one tool for idea generation, collaboration, and task management. Since its launch, Ayoa has attracted more than 12,000 paying users and c. 300,000 users who have signed up for the free product. The platform is planning to more than triple this amount in the next two years.
“We intend to establish a tiered pricing plan structure with the introduction of a higher-priced plan which will include additional features and a plan specifically designed for larger Business teams.”
Ayoa further reported that with many great collaborative features and integrations with video conferencing tools such as Zoom (coming soon), it is the ideal solution to remote meetings and actioning ideas.
“Many teams are working remotely for the first time. Research from Buffer highlights ‘collaboration and communication’ as the number one challenge for teams. Video conference tools, whilst they appear to provide a virtual meeting setting, are simply not enough. We feel that existing task management tools facilitate work but don’t help teams to map out what work to do in the first place.”
The funds from the Seedrs campaign will be used to further develop the following products:
- Smart Meetings (In development): A new way to successfully hold meetings remotely, Ayoa’s new Meeting Board feature will allow teams host meetings (remote or otherwise) and simultaneously take notes, develop ideas and create tasks. No more time-wasting meetings.
- Intelligent Digital Workspace (partially in development): More than just a task management, mind mapping or meeting tool, Ayoa will become an all-in-one solution for teams, wherever they’re based to take ideas through to action.
- Powerful Integrations (In development): Ayoa will be introducing a suite of integrations to ensure users can use Ayoa alongside their favorite existing software, including video conferencing tools such as Zoom, Teams, and many more.
- AI Research: Ayoa will be exploring the use of AI in running remote meetings, providing a team solution like no other.
Ayoa’s Seedrs campaign is set to close at the end of May.
