Asynchronous Short Video Platform Voodle Raises US$ 6M

US-based asynchronous short video platform purpose-built for remote teams and the new workplace, Voodle raised US$ 6M on 9 December 2020.

The funding round was led by Madrona Venture Group and Vulcan Capital. Other participants include M12, Cisco Investments and Hearst Ventures.

The investment will be utilized to drive product innovation and expand Voodle’s headcount including executive leadership, sales, marketing, and engineering. Voodle also wishes to grow its native customer segments, including the support for key tech industry roles, such as management, sales, customer relations, human resources and more. 

About Voodle


Founded in 2020 by Forest Key, Voodle captures important business moments as they happen and shares the knowledge that connects the team and drives action.

Zoom fatigue and Slack overload is becoming a serious issue for work from home employees. Voodle provides a new and innovative way to collaborate by providing a smart alternative, a quick 60-second video shared with the right people. This works better than the time-consuming video conference calls or instant messages that often bury effective communication. 

The Voodle platform can be used across the web, iOS and Android or it can be integrated with other popular work platforms such as Slack, Salesforce or Hubspot, allowing teams to quickly capture and share short video updates, insights and ideas that uniquely convey a sense of context and emotion.

“The shift to remote work is here to stay, and the new workplace requires tools that can shrink the distance between colleagues, foster an inclusive culture, and keep teams happy and productive,” said Forest Key, CEO and Founder at Voodle. “Voodle checks all of these boxes and more.  The asynchronous short video is the perfect solution for fostering team collaboration and cohesiveness, for motivating and inspiring others, and moving business decisions along further, faster. It allows colleagues to inform and update as often as needed, without interrupting or adding more cycles.”

What Investors have to say

“The future of work requires async short videos. Zoom fatigue is a very real thing today’s remote workforce must manage and Voodle helps mitigate some of the burden and burnout created by trying to force former office life rhythms into endless hours of video conference calls. We see Voodle as a new business tool that’s effortlessly integrated into the everyday workflow. It’s simple and effective but, as importantly, it’s also fun to use,” said Tim Porter, Managing Director at Madrona Venture Group.
