Chronicle, a San Francisco-based startup that provides a presentation platform, raised $7.5 million in seed funding.
The round was co-led by Accel and Square Peg, with participation from angel investors from Apple, Google, Meta, Slack, Stripe, Superhuman, OnDeck, Adobe, and others.
The company plans to use the fresh funds for product development and hiring.
“Our adopters can use Chronicle to create decks in 8 minutes instead of 8 hours. We see Chronicle as a way to anchor any meeting or discussion, in-person, remote, or asynchronous,” said Mayuresh Patole, co-founder and CEO of Chronicle.
Chronicle was created to solve two main problems. The first is that creating slides is time-consuming because many presentation tools expect users to be visual designers, and most are not. The second is that the results are usually unappealing and static.
It is integrated with more than 100 apps, including Twitter, Notion, Slack, and Figma, which makes it easier to add info from them into blocks.
The company plans to expand to other use cases soon, like sales decks, product sharebacks, investor and board updates, organization documentation, business strategy and reports, and all hands.
