Even though no-one enjoys legalese, businesses cannot avoid it, so it is not surprising that LawCanvas has raised around $45K since launching in May 2014, and their user base was close to 2,000 in just 7 months.

LawCanvas only serves Singapore at this stage, but strong interest has emerged in Malaysia, and cofounders Daniel Leong and Mark Png have global-expansion plans—especially because other startups have flocked to the software.

Like Collabspot, Augment was developed as a productivity booster, whereby users’ Gmail inboxes are connected to their cloud applications. Augment users have a single point of access to manage important tasks, mail, events, and files.

The startup registered its 1,000th user on May 14, 2015, after Product Hunt broadcast the benefits of Augment’s one-stop, email-based productivity tool.

Augment creators Autocus signed up 250 executives within 15 hours of launching in June 2014. They understand rapid growth, and we expect this trend to continue as the world constantly strives to get more out their work days.
