What we’re building
StackShare is building AI-powered Tech Stack Intelligence for enterprise-scale companies with thousands of codebases.
Like many open source companies, StackShare started out building a developer community and then layered in an enterprise SaaS offering based on what the community asked for. We’ve now built the world’s first Tech Stack Intelligence solution to help large companies defeat tech sprawl inside their organizations.
Sales professionals used to have no system to coordinate their efforts before the CRM came along. They'd accidentally call the same leads, couldn't easily track their funnel, and had no way to know who to talk to internally about which customers. Similarly, while there are plenty of tools for developers to manage and discuss code (GitLab, Stack Overflow, etc), engineers and architects have had no system of record, let alone a system of intelligence, to capture technology decisions.
StackShare is creating a new category of business software that every company with developers will eventually need: tech stack intelligence. There’s no other product in the market that compares. Our competition is Excel spreadsheets, Confluence wikis, and Markdown files. Announced on stage at GitHub’s annual conference in December 2020, the product is now gaining adoption amongst large companies that already have a presence on StackShare.
Developer-driven software is projected to be a $1 trillion market. Atlassian and GitHub have built multi-billion dollar businesses by providing collaboration software for technical teams, but they’ve left a gap in the market that StackShare is now filling.
We’re supported by an amazing group of investors including Headline (e.ventures), Cervin Ventures, Precursor Ventures, 500 Startups, Citi Ventures, as well as angels like Zach Holman, Quinn Slack (CEO of Sourcegraph), Chris Nguyen (Co-founder of LogDNA), John Kim (CEO of Sendbird), Nick Rockwell, Baron Davis, and engineers/leaders from GitHub, Stripe, Facebook, Square, Twitter, Salesforce, Google, Dropbox, Airbnb, and more.
If you want to be a part of creating something new that will eventually be used by every company in the world that employs software developers, this might be the right opportunity for you.
