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.

An article about our $10.5 million Series A funding round, and our mission to become the universal translator for work management tools.
After funding many of the world’s top cloud software suppliers, U.S. venture capital giant Bessemer Venture Partners is backing a Montreal startup that has created a way for that throng of platforms to talk to one another.
Led by three venture capital funds, including Real Ventures of Montreal, the Series A financing round will add new software to Unito’s catalog, which wants to become a “universal translator” for the dozens of platforms used by businesses.
Finding that “single source of truth” is the modern-day white whale of the workplace. Here’s why we’re excited to partner with Unito’s co-founders Marc Boscher and Eryk Warren.
