Superhuman is an AI-based email platform currently available to Gmail and iOS users. It offers a variety of features to reinvent the inbox, including AI-based tools to highlight the most important emails, follow-up reminders, and scheduled messages for a monthly subscription fee of USD 30. Superhuman reportedly reached 50,000 users in 2020 and had a waitlist of more than 450,000 as of August 2021.
Superhuman raised USD 75 million in a Series C funding round led by Institutional Venture Partners (IVP) in August 2021. The round valued the company at USD 825 million and included the participation of Tiger Global Management and individual investors Drew Houston (CEO of Dropbox) and Jason Citron (CEO of Discord).
As part of the investment, Ajay Vashee (General Partner, IVP) is expected to join Superhuman’s board of directors. The fresh capital is expected to be funneled toward product development and launching the software to Outlook and Android users. It also plans to ramp up hiring across the team to reach a headcount of more than 200 by the end of 2022 (from 85 as of August 2021). Furthermore, integration with third-party tools such as Grammarly, Hubspot, and Salesforce is in the roadmap.
