4. Shelf

Shelf

Founded: 2015

Also honored in: 

“The workplace has changed. Teams now live in different parts of the country and, possibly, even the world. Collaborating across projects and continents is becoming the new norm. Distributed teams live and die by their ability to quickly learn, share key knowledge and take the right action at the right time.

But there is a problem. Currently stuff is scattered and disorganized all over the place and the products meant to solve this content sprawl, like SharePoint and Confluence, are expensive, difficult to use and hard to search.

In building a solution the Shelf team went beyond software and set out to understand the Science of Organization. They consulted Harvard librarians, change management experts, and information architects. With the help of these global thought leaders, knowledge management best practices were built into the core of the product.”
