A great piece from Techcrunch about what we do and how our passion for our mission led to a $10.5 million Series A funding round.
Co-founders Marc Boscher and Eryk Warren struck gold when they came up with an unconventional solution to the perpetual business problem of cross-team collaboration. SaaS tool use is on the rise, and Gartner predicts the collaboration tool market to double by 2023. But the massive proliferation of online tools is causing nearly as many headaches as it solves. Over the course of their incubation with Montreal’s Founder Institute program, the three co-founders created Unito: a project and task management “untool.”
Rather than building another project management or collaboration platform, they chose to create collaboration through easy-to-use, two-way integrations.
Unito was launched on Oct 31 2016. It featured automatic syncing between Github, a popular developer tool for tracking code changes, and Wrike, a well-known project management tool. Soon after, they connected Asana and Atlassian’s Jira, and have since added Trello, Basecamp, BitBucket, GitLab, HubSpot, and Zendesk to their list of integrations.
Unito is only getting started and will continue to expand with new integrations, new workflows, and new features. Tune into our blog to see what we come up with next.
Or maybe you want to be a part of the journey? Unito is growing and needs more passionate team members to join the #unitofam. Have a look at our job openings to find out more.

"PMs don’t want to use Jira, engineers don’t want to mess with Trello and keeping everyone happy can mean replicating processes again and again. Montreal-based Unito is building software that helps these platforms communicate with each other so teams can keep their favorite tools without bringing the company to a crawl."
