Guru, With $2.7 Million In Funding, Simplifies Internal Knowledge Sharing

By Jordan Crook

Given the speed at which startups often grow, disseminating important information to the folks that need it (when they need it) can become a huge hurdle.

Guru, started by Boomi founder Rick Nucci, aims to solve that problem.

Guru is a Chrome web extension that sits on top of pretty much anything you do on your computer, and intelligently surfaces the relevant information about your startup right when you need it. Today, Guru is launching out of beta alongside the announcement of a $2.7 million seed round led by FirstMark Capital (which also invested in Boomi), with participation from MSD Capital, Salesforce Ventures, and other angels.

Here’s how Guru works:

Experts in certain areas, such as product or marketing, can create cards with all the latest, verified information about a certain product release, marketing initiative, competitive landscape, etc. and that information will be surfaced to sales teams or support teams at the moment they need it.

Guru also integrates with other web services, such as Salesforce or LinkedIn.
