Our Founding Story
After building products at category leading technology companies like Google, Snap & PayPal, Cameron Lindsay and Haibo Zhao came together to answer a burning question that consumed them for years:
How can software make big companies feel smaller?
Their pursuit led to more questions: How can we help distributed employees feel more connected to their coworkers? How can information accessibility foster a more inclusive culture? How can we deliver mission-critical information securely? How can we give admins the ability to manage how information is presented to their employees?
The Haystack platform was born as an answer to those questions. A counterpoint to traditional intranets, Haystack connects people, knowledge, and communications instantly and securely, no matter where they are.
Our customers improve alignment, increase engagement, scale culture, and onboard new hires faster.
We’ve raised $8M+ from world-class investors like Coatue, Greycroft, and BoxGroup as well investments from the founders of Twitter, Riot Games, and more.
