Slack on the Move with Automat Investment

Posted on 7.21.2016

Tech darling Slack has reportedly invested in chatbot company Automat, a solution that allows brands to communicate to their audience by using a mix of mobile messaging, artificial intelligence and chatbot technology.

Slack - covered in detail in the April issue of Website Magazine - announced the launch of its venture capital (VC) fund back in Dec. 2015 (a reported $80 million) and has invested in three companies officially:

  • Howdy — an app that runs status update meetings for teams through Slack's built-in bot.
  • Small Wins — a stealth productivity startup founded by former Engadget Editor-In-Chief Ryan Block.
  • Awesome — an app that helps customers automate workflows and provide summaries of Slack chats.
