Loom Raises $11MM Series A Led by Kleiner Perkins

Today’s news: I’m thrilled to announce we’ve raised a $11 million Series A led by Kleiner Perkins’ partner, Ilya Fushman.

We’re looking forward to working with Ilya & the KP team as Loom scales from one million global knowledge workers and beyond. Ilya is known for making early bets on SaaS companies like Intercom and Slack, in part due to his data-driven investment thesis and go-to-market expertise stemming from his time as an early employee and leader at Dropbox.

Daniel GrossDylan Field, and Jared Leto are participating in this round, along with our existing investors—General Catalyst, Point Nine Capital, and 1517 Fund.

2.5 years ago, we founded Loom to build a new kind of work communication tool that would help you get your message across through instantly shareable video.

With Loom, you’re able to capture your screen, record your front-facing camera, and narrate your video all at once — no switching apps or upload required. Whether it’s onboarding new teammates or replying to a customer inquiry, Loom enhances the way people communicate at work by allowing them to send the next best thing to being there.

Today, we’re excited to release Loom Desktop alongside Loom Pro.

Loom Pro

Loom’s premium offering brings big updates to the platform and makes it easier than ever to tell your story with video.

Add a custom Call-To-Action (CTA) button to your videos to drive viewers to an action (book calls, reference a document, sign up, etc) or make your videos more beautiful & engaging by adding a Custom Video Thumbnail to help your viewers understand exactly what your video is about before they even play it.

These premium features will be complemented with Viewer Insights and Custom Branding (coming soon).

Loom Pro offers you unlimited storage and access to all the Desktop premium features (below) so your message is always crystal clear. ‍

Loom Desktop

Loom Desktop is our powerful native recording app that allows you to record pixel perfect videos in full HD. Packed with brand new premium features to supercharge the way you communicate with your team and customers. The Loom Desktop app enables you to record with Custom Dimensions, emphasize content on your screen using the live Drawing Tool, and more.
