London-based social note-taking and knowledge-sharing app Supernotes founded by Tobias Whetton and Connor Neblett is all set to build a knowledge management solution, an extension of how our brain works. Focused on growth and development, Supernotes has now secured a pre-seed funding of £150K led by Flamefinch Partners.

Focused on growth!

Flamefinch Partners is a London-based advisory and investment practice that is following the productivity space, which is growing at 16.5% CAGR, as per Adroit Market Research. Supernotes will use the investment towards growing the core community of users and accelerating their fast pace of development.

David Walsh, Managing Partner at Flamefinch Partners said: “Although we’ve had computers for a long time, digital note-taking hasn’t progressed much beyond its pen-and-paper counterpart. The problem is that the fundamental format hasn’t really changed — notes are taken in long-form documents, burying information in a mass of text in a mess of files. These documents can be easy to share but hard to collaborate on effectively, as every collaborator has their own way of organising information. Supernotes is a solution to these problems and delivers a truly collaborative note-taking experience.”

Eyes to build B2B product

In an attempt to avoid certainthese long-form documents and messy folders, the co-founders of Supernotes invented a brand new format called notecard. It helps its users to link thoughts, ideas, and knowledge together while collaborating with others in real-time seamlessly.

Supernotes went public in April 2020 and reached over 10,000 students and professionals globally.

Co-founder Whetton explained, “We could never have imagined the impact that Supernotes would have. From helping students to stay connected with their classmates and achieving first-class remote degrees, to inspiring those staying at home to share their reading lists, workout routines, and recipes with friends and family.”

Being at the forefront of a new generation of productivity apps, Supernotes intends to raise further funding later in 2021 that will be used to build their B2B offering.
