Slack Launches App Directory and Slack Fund

Last updated:

Slackhas  announced it’s teamed up with its investors Accel, Andreessen Horowitz, Index Ventures, KPCB, Spark, and Social+Capital and together they’ve thrown in $80 million for a Slack-first fund.

It will back enterprise software developers making Slack integrations part of their core product. Slack and its VCs want these developers to make Slack more useful and convenient with apps for doing all sorts of things in the workplace.

If you’re a developer or small company deciding whether to make a bet on the Slack platform, the Slack Fund is a new source of support to help you get started building apps. The Slack Fund will fund both “Slack-first” apps as well as B2B and enterprise tools that make Slack integrations a core part of their offering.

The Slack Fund has already made three investments: Howdy, Awesome and Small Wins.

In addition, Slack has also launched a brand new Slack App Directory, where you can find over 160 apps that can extend the capabilities of your Slack team, sorted into curated lists by category, popularity, and staff favorites.

There are listings from a variety of categories such as design, marketing, office management, developer tools, and productivity.

You can  search for apps from within Slack itself, by typing /apps <keyword>to search for any app related to that <keyword> and get the 3 most popular results back in your channel.
