Slack-Rival Flock Gets $25 Mn From Founder For Expansion, But Is It A Good Decision?

While the startup ecosystem is struggling to keep afloat as funds are drying up, here is another story — of a founder who believes that his company can take on global rivals, and even go global.

“The winner in the game will depend on how Flock can be integrated with other enterprise products, offered by Microsoft, SAP or Oracle… It is not yet a success stories,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, founder and chief analyst at Greyhound Research.

Flock will also need large system integrators like Cap Gemini, Infosys and Cognizant for implementation. System integrators have already built a practice around Microsoft and Slack, which are already large global products. “Flock does not have that advantage,” Gogia added.
