Stock vendor and tech startup Pickit received an investment from Microsoft Ventures. This investment will propel Pickit into the next phase of its mission to make it simpler for everyday Office users to increase productivity and improve the quality of their work.
Four years ago, the founders of Pickit approached Microsoft with a big idea–to create an integrated image service that worked seamlessly with PowerPoint and Word. Since then, Pickit has developed the technology and sourced the content to service worldwide Office users.
We asked Mathias Björkholm, the Co-CEO and Founder of Pickit: What does the Microsoft investment mean for Pickit, and what will its impact be on Microsoft Office users?
His response: With this latest round of financing, we truly get the chance to expand our business model and create a dedicated image bank for modern MS Office users. We’re already adding value and functionality to the Microsoft Office applications that people use on a daily basis by putting our Pickit Business service into PowerPoint and Word and we look forward to working with Microsoft Ventures and our other partners as we continue to increase productivity.
