Outverse Announces $6M Seed Round
Outverse is helping the next generation of software companies build better community ecosystems.
London-based startup Outverse has raised $6 million in fresh funding as it enters open beta with its full-stack community platform for software companies. Outverse co-founders Kyran Schmidt, Ollie Steadman, and Jeylani Jeylani aim to address the challenges of managing online communities by providing a centralized knowledge ecosystem tailored to the needs of software communities. The platform offers purpose-built forums, knowledge bases, and product documentation, with features such as linking conversations, marking questions as solved, and a semantic engine for efficient knowledge discovery. Outverse plans to leverage large language models (LLMs) to enhance its platform with AI-powered knowledge retrieval and workflow capabilities. The company's vision is to unlock community growth and make its value more accessible to stakeholders across product, support, and marketing teams.
Outverse's approach sets it apart from other community analytics or workflow tools, as it focuses on building the actual platform where communities are hosted, managed, and run. The startup aims to provide a modern alternative to traditional community platforms like Slack and Discord, which were not designed specifically for the needs of software communities. Outverse's arrival comes at a time when businesses are increasingly seeking owned alternatives for hosting their communities. The seed funding round was led by Wing VC, with participation from Notion Capital, Seedcamp, Connect Ventures, and Tiny VC. With this investment, Outverse plans to scale its product and introduce new features, including real-time chat, in preparation for its full launch.
