Why work with Asana
Asana is the best work management platform. Leverage Asana to initially help you manage day to day projects and tasks, and expand on your usage as you grow your company and team. Asana has flexibility to add licenses as you grow, and you can easily connect to other systems that are imperative to your startup’s growth and security (like Google, Okta, HubSpot, or Slack). As a Founder you can limit access to contractors & other employees, and at the same time create the cross-functional collaboration & clarity that is necessary for work. Particularly in today’s remote or hybrid working environments, visibility is necessary to understand productivity and where your team may be stuck to help them tackle roadblocks. Asana standardizes & creates a view of everything going on, so you can prioritize work and make smart business decisions. Allow Asana to be the partner that helps you scale as your company does too.

Stakeholder relations. Streamline communication and reporting to investors, boards, and corporate sponsors to build trust and foster stronger relationships.
