  • Founded in 2022, Klu allows users to integrate their existing tools such as Slack, Google Drive, Figma (and more) so they can search and organize their digital information in one place. Klu reduces the hassle of finding information in multiple tools and keeps the information accessible for individuals and teams.

“Our journey started when my friend and cofounder Wildan struggled a lot with finding his files and other important notes. He tried to fix it by creating bots, that automatically forward any files or information he wants to his telegram saved-messages,”

Sami Abuzarifa, co-founder of Klu, said.
  • The investment came from Antler. It is a global fund with offices in 25 cities across the globe. Antler have invested in more than 600 startups across a wide range of industries and technologies, with the goal of backing more than 6,000 by 2030.
  • Klu is currently taking closed-beta users only. The proceeds will allow the startup to continue building and launching its public beta in January 2023.
