  • What matters most to open-source chat plat Mattermost? To shove this fresh $20m into security, privacy

    Slack-for-engineers Mattermost has said it plans to plough its $20m Series-A funding into privacy and security.

    Mattermost is open source and, its CEO Ian Tien told The Register, is "by developers for developers" – words that usually strike fear into the heart of UI designers.

    However, the messaging platform has proved popular with engineering teams, enamored by access to the code as well as the many, many add-ons published. A quick look at GitHub shows more than a thousand in various stages of development.

  • Slack Competitor Mattermost Raises $20 Million in Funding

    Mattermost, an open source messaging platform, this week announced it has closed a $20 million series A funding round led by Redpoint Ventures, with participation from S28 Capital and Y Combinator.

  • Slack competitor Mattermost raises $20 million for its workplace chat app

    Private, open source Slack competitor Mattermost today closed a $20 million funding round to help members of its community create new plugins and integrations.

    The news comes a day after Slack shared plans to go public and workplace collaboration app Coda launched out of beta.

    Mattermost has shaped itself in Slack’s image. Like that popular real-time workplace messaging app, Mattermost began as a provider of communications for gamers, CEO Ian Tien told VentureBeat in a phone interview, but was later sold as a team communications service to enterprise customers.

  • How open source Mattermost is sneaking up on Slack's messaging empire

    Slack may be making the headlines with its confidential, $8 billion filing to go public, but there's another, under the radar open source phenomenon playing in that same enterprise messaging market. Mattermost, which just announced a $20 million, Redpoint-led Series A venture round, started as a gaming platform, like Slack, but unlike Slack Mattermost delivers enterprise messaging flexibility through open source, to the tune of 10,000 downloads per month, each of which supports hundreds of Slack-sized teams.

    While this may sound like an underdog story, Mattermost already boasts large customers as varied as Amazon, Uber, and the US Department of Defense. Indeed, Mattermost offers an interesting case study on how to do open source right as a component of a business strategy.
