We at Wing are thrilled to announce that we are leading Outverse’s $6 million seed round. Outverse is a state-of-the-art community platform for forward-thinking companies that reimagines how product teams connect with their customers and users.
The growing market shift to product-led growth (PLG) has been evident for all to see, and something we have written a lot about and invested a lot behind. But one of the more underappreciated aspects of the trend is that the best companies have coupled their PLG motion with Community-led Growth (CLG), where they have leveraged their community as a way to improve their product, grow through word of mouth, and better support their users.
Today, businesses have been trying to nurture their communities on platforms like Slack and Discord, which were not designed for this purpose. Enter Outverse.
Outverse stands apart by providing an extensible, configurable platform specifically tailored for companies to manage their communities.
Outverse's product changes the game in community management. With dynamic forums, knowledge bases, and product documentation, Outverse enables businesses to build a growing bank of community knowledge. Its AI-driven functionality makes information easy to find, thus reducing time spent on customer support and increasing customer success.
What drew us to Outverse was not just its vision to help power the next generation of community-led companies, but also its formidable founding team. Co-founders Kyran Schmidt, Ollie Steadman, and Jeylani Jeylani bring their combined experience building delightful products and nurturing and fostering community themselves.
Congratulations to the Outverse team! Feel free to reach out to them if you're interested in learning more about their product.
