Snipply is all about the future of work, an interesting term that blankets everything from AI and automation to shifting demographics and workplace environments and dynamics.
We believe the future of work is way more about how we work, and how technology is influencing how we work together. Collaboration is at the heart of our workplace, and how we create and manage the content we work hard on is the foundation of how we work together.
With that being said, we’d like to take a look at some of the companies shaping how we get work done. We used Crunchbase Pro’s search feature for this list, excluding companies marked as closed and searched for founded after 1/1/2013. The way the list is sorted is by “CB Rank”. Crunchbase defines CB Rank as follows:
The Crunchbase Rank algorithm takes many signals into account including the number of connections a profile has, the level of community engagement, funding events, news articles, and acquisitions.
A company’s Rank is fluid and subject to rising and decaying over time with time-sensitive events. Events such as product launches, funding events, leadership changes, and news affect a company’s Crunchbase Rank.
We removed the startups that clearly aren’t related document management or creation, and here were are — the top 10 startups for document creation and management.
