As companies expand, information becomes siloed and important conversations and business decisions happen behind closed doors. Threads breaks down these barriers, ensuring better communication and business outcomes. But what is the answer?

Ex-Facebooker and startup founder, Rousseau Kazi created a company called Threads which is on a mission to help businesses keep their entire staff informed through inclusivity and transparency.

Threads launched out of stealth in February and is designed by former employees from Facebook, Slack, Instagram, and Twitter. The company raised $10.5 million in an investment round led by Sequoia Capital. This also includes other investors such as the CEO’s of Glossier, Stripe, and TaskRabbit, among others.

Unlike many entrepreneurs looking to get their idea off the ground, Rousseau was determined to onboard investors aligned with the company’s mission of embracing diversity and inclusivity. So, he established a 50/50 gender-equal cap comprised of some of the most well-respected leaders in and out of the valley.

Rousseau Kazi shares his startup story and vision for the future of Threads on my daily tech podcast.
