Punchlist, an information technology startup based in Atlanta, has raised $2 million in seed funding to allow teammates to communicate more effectively by sharing feedback directly on the content being reviewed.

The round was co-led by Overline and PJC, with participation from several private investors. The seed funding will allow Punchlist to boost its growth efforts by hiring new team members for its marketing and engineering teams, as well as expand the integrations for its flagship product. Michael Cohn, a Managing Partner at Overline who will be joining the startup’s board, referred to the firm’s participation in the round by stating:

“Pete and Nic are solving one of the most pervasive problems in digital work—closing the loop on creative feedback—with an intuitive solution that lives where the work is being done. We’re thrilled to support Punchlist through their next phase of growth.”

Punchlist was co-founded by Pete Bernardo and Nic Rosental back in 201 with the mission of closing the loop in creative feedback, changing forever how teams collaborate. The startup aims to do this by offering an annotation layer that can be used directly over any work without the need for an installation, making it easier to share feedback with teammates just by sharing an URL. Bernardo said in this regard:

“Our vision is to change the way creative work is done. Nowadays, design happens across entire organizations, in any department and role; our goal is to level up any individual by giving them the tools to effortlessly get feedback on their work and provide real-time system feedback looking for common issues like accessibility problems, grammar, and even marketing best practices.”

With remote teams becoming increasingly relevant for enterprises in different industries, there has been a surge in demand for platforms that facilitate virtual communication. By being easily integrable with platforms like WordPress, Jira, Asana, and more, Punchlist is now serving more than 8k users across 39 countries, becoming a major driver in the transition toward remote working that has followed the COVID19 pandemic.
