Oneteam Inc. receives seed round funding from CyberAgent Ventures to further product development with new hires
Oneteam Inc. (HQ: Tokyo, Japan CEO: Akira Sasaki) closed their seed round fundraising.
The company allocated its new stock to CyberAgent Ventures, Inc. (HQ: Tokyo, Japan CEO: Soichi Tajima).
With the funds raised, the company plans to hire core engineers in order to further develop their co-working communication platform Oneteam, a new smartphone based communications platform aimed at Japan and SE Asian countries.
A solution for employment issues facing Japan and SE Asian countries?
In Japanese corporations, an increasingly diverse workforce is leading to more consideration being given to alternate work styles, with the recognition that traditional desktop computer-oriented offices need to change the ways they communicate.
Also, as SE Asian countries continue their rapid growth, frequent turnover of employees at companies is high, while the business environment for workers remains ill-maintained, with a lack of intranet, and the use of free email services being widespread. Shortening the time taken to develop new employees into an effective team, and improving stability in the work force are management issues which plague many companies.
2015 is the inaugural year for the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), with predictions of growth in companies targeting the business development sector.
In light of this, Oneteam provides support for lifting productivity in the business environments of Japanese and Southeast Asian corporations, with our co-working communication platform based around the smartphone.
Oneteam – the Co-working Communication Platform
Oneteam, with the concept Your team, in the palm of your hand, delivers a complete solution to corporate teams and also NPO and NGOs, enabling work across borders and timezones smoothly and simply.
Key features include the Personal Profile that enables team members to get to know each other quickly and the one time Communication Platform to support co-working among employees.
Prior to our main launch in summer 2015, the company will release a beta product in early June 2015. Our goal for year’s end is 100 customers and 10,000 accounts on Oneteam.
