IDG Contributor Network: Hive — another attempt to resolve the email conundrum

Hive. A great name for a startup with an interesting history.

Hive is a new startup founded by a couple of experienced guys. John Furneaux is the ex-global head of customer success at Huddle while Eric Typaldos was previously employed by the White House as a technical architect for the Office of Management and Budget and is an Oracle platform architect.

The two founders were frustrated with the lack of basic tools available to run their project and decided to solve that problem. They built an early version for themselves and, in a story that mirrors so many startups before, Hive proved popular to others too and they moved the business from San Francisco to New York to take advantage of the stronger enterprise market.

The company is a graduate of the AngelPad program in 2015 and has just announced a $1.4m seed investment from a number of funds and individual angel investors led by New York’s Tribeca Venture Partners. Since graduating from AngelPad, Hive has found 250 companies to use the product, and those customers are using Hive to run their team operations. The customer spread spans business as small as they come through to relative giants such as Pinterest and Deloitte.
