The Signal: Back in 2015, Slack teamed up with their buddies over at Accel, Index, and a16z (just to name a few), and rolled out a $80m fund, “to support teams building products on top of Slack that enable simpler, more pleasant, and more productive workplaces.” 

With about 7 investments each year in its first 4 years of existence, a pandemic-fueled remote shift has the Slack Fund participating in 15 investments this year alone (not done yet), totaling $296.4m to companies building on top of Slack.
