Screen is becoming the most important place in the world, says InVision CEO and founder Clark Valberg. In fact, it is hard to get through a conversation with him without hearing it. And, considering that his company has grown to $100 million in annual recurring revenue, he has reason to believe his own affirmation. Invision, startup looking to be Salesforce of Design, has officially achieved unicorn status with close of $115 million Series F round, bringing the company's total funding to $350 million. This deal values InVision at $1. 9 billion, which is nearly double its valuation as of mid - 2017 on the heels of its $100 million Series E financing. Spark Capital led the round, with participation from Goldman Sachs, as well as existing investors Battery Ventures, ICONIQ Capital, Tiger Global Management, FirstMark and Geodesic Capital. Atlassian also participated in the round. Earlier this year, Atlassian and InVision built much deeper integrations, allowing Jira, Confluence and Trello users to instantly collaborate via InVision. As part of the deal, Spark Capitals ' Megan Quinn will be joining the board alongside existing board members and observers Amish Jani, Lee Fixel, Matthew Jacobson, Mike Kourey, Neeraj Agrawal, Vas Natarajan and Daniel Wolfson. Invision started in 2011 as a simple prototyping tool. It lets designers build out their experience without asking the engineering / dev team to actually build it, to then send to engineering and product and marketing and executive teams for collaboration and / or approval. Over the years, company has stretched its efforts both up and downstream in process, building out full collaboration suite called InVision Cloud, so that every member of the organization can be involved in the design process; Studio, Design platform meant to take on the likes of Adobe and Sketch; and InVision Design System Manager, where Design teams can manage their assets and best practices from one place. But perhaps more impressive than InVisions ability to build design products for designers is its ability to attract users that arent designers. Originally, I did think we appreciated how much freemium models act as flywheels internally within organization, say Quinn. Those designers just invited designers from their own team or other teams, but PMs and Marketing and Customer Service and executives to collaborate and approve designs. From outside, InVision looks like a design company. But really, they start with designers as core customers and spread virally within the organization to serve multitude. Invision has simply dominated prototyping and collaboration, today announcing it has surpassed 5 million users. What's more, InVision has a wide variety of customers. Startup has a long and impressive list of digital - first customers, including Netflix, Uber, Airbnb and Twitter, but also serves 97 percent of Fortune 100, with customers like Adidas, General Electric, NASA, IKEA, Starbucks and Toyota. Part of that can be attributed to the quality of products, but a fundamental shift to digital is most certainly under way.

All or nothing

Valuation of almost $2 billion. Over 5 million users. Nearly 800 employees. Zero offices. Record scratch: that's right. No headquarters, no office space - anywhere. How can software startup in a burgeoning industry grow into a multi - billion - dollar business leader in just a few years - all with a fully remote team distributed across over 40 states and 20 countries around the world? Invision is showing us the way. Founder and CEO Clark Valberg believes the screen has become the most important place in the world. So IT makes sense that they not only developed platforms of collaborative design and prototyping tools for creating screens and digital experiences, but also companies that operate entirely through screen. There are endless proven perks of remote work: higher productivity, cost savings, better work - life balance, and more. But IT also comes with big challenges, including creating a strong company culture, maintaining clear communication, and building rapport among coworkers who are sitting next to each other or seeing each other regularly. With the help of Atlassian and Slack, InVision has tackled all of these challenges and more. Theyve developed connect, communicative team and award - winning culture, as well as repeatable processes and systems for scaling that culture as they bring design - driven innovation to every company in the world. Tasks were slipping through cracks. Employees were losing time switching between tools, and IT was hard to pass work between teams because each one uses a different platform. Leaders also find IT nearly impossible to pull comprehensive reports or get a complete picture of people and projects they are managing. To continue companies ' rapid growth, they need to simplify, stat. Invision wants one cloud - base platform that could meet their diverse needs off shelf and integrate well with other department - specific tools, such as HR resource management system. Wendy was already familiar with Atlassian, and once she started researching how Atlassian tools like Jira Software, Confluence and Trello could integrate easily with the rest of their day to - day tools, IT quickly became her top pick. She remember, with Atlassian, IT is easy to get started and spin up solution. I also love the idea of having a self - serving app marketplace. Wendy was optimistic that migration and change management would be easier since some of InVisions departments, such as Engineering, Product & Design, were already using Trello and Jira Software. She also appreciated that InVision could integrate Atlassian with their other day - to - day tools, including their own Product and Slack. While Wendy and the BizTech Team began centralizing their own system and IT workflows to Jira Software and Confluence, other departments were also adopting Atlassian. Today, teams across InVision use Atlassian products to help improve productivity, efficiency, visibility, and collaboration. Now, Atlassian cloud products have emerged as the perfect solution, without forcing employees to change their workflow. Because Slack integrates seamlessly with Atlassian products, individuals can still post messages to Slack or submit requests directly through Jira Service Desk.
