SureSwift Acquires B2B SaaS Startup, Jell

SureSwift Acquires B2B SaaS Startup, Jell

We’re thrilled to announce a new addition to our B2B SaaS portfolio with the acquisition of Jell, an online tool that enables collaboration and daily standups for technical teams. Founders Ade Olonoh, Michael Mattax and Jon Izquierdo launched the business in 2015, growing it to a fully-scaled platform that thousands of teams rely on to streamline their daily work. 

Jell’s software helps technical teams from companies around the globe — including our own fully remote tech team at SureSwift Capital — run daily standups and manage tasks, objectives, and key results. Integrations with other popular workplace collaboration platforms like Slack, Microsoft Teams, GitHub, Jira, and Trello help cut down on meetings, so team members get back valuable work time, and everyone has better visibility on progress and issues.

As part of the SureSwift portfolio, Jell users can expect the same great customer support, and we’ll be planning new features and integrations as we continue to grow.

We’d like to congratulate Ade, Michael and Jon on building a system that improves business outcomes while making the work day better for technical teams. We couldn’t be happier that they’ve chosen us to take their business — and the Jell customers and team — to the next stage of growth. 

SureSwift Acquires Ed Tech Startup FeedbackPanda

SureSwift Acquires Ed Tech Startup FeedbackPanda

We’re stoked to announce a new addition to our portfolio with the acquisition of FeedbackPanda, an Ed Tech SaaS business, which was founded by Danielle Simpson and Arvid Kahl in 2017.

FeedbackPanda helps thousands of teachers create and share feedback templates and build reports to track their courses and students. The platform saves teachers up to 2 hours each day so they can focus more on teaching, and less on administrative work.

As part of the SureSwift portfolio, FeedbackPanda teachers can expect the same great customer support the company’s been known for, and we’ll be on the lookout for the next set of features to help teachers even more as we continue to grow the community.

We’d like to congratulate Danielle and Arvid on building and selling such a vibrant, purpose-driven business. They paint an amazing picture of the success bootstrapped founders can have without VC funding.

We’re thrilled that they chose us to take care of their customers and bring the business to the next stage of growth while they get some well deserved vacation time and plot their next moves. Giving independent founders dream exits so they can move on to their next idea is one of the most exciting parts of our business, and we can’t wait to see what these two do next.

To learn more about FeedbackPanda, and how Danielle and Arvid built the business, check out our interview with them. And for FeedbackPanda teachers, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on your normal support channels!
