Automating ideation in mind maps

Dissatisfied with the tools available for distributed work, maker Kaspars Dancis founded Whimsical in 2017.

The platform’s collaboration tools include flowcharts, wireframes, mind maps, sticky notes, and syncable documents — in an effort to end app-switching and challenge spreadsheet and slide deck dominance in remote team workflows.

Whimsical raised $30M in a Series A funding round in November 2021, with angel investments from GitHub’s CEO and COO, Stripe’s CPO, and Dropbox’s co-founder.

Today, the Whimsical team is launching Whimsical AI for Mind Maps in beta: an integration to the core product that generates ideas for mind maps, in response to simple text prompts.

Say you're thinking about building a fitness app. Whimsical AI can help you come up with a name for your product, logo ideas, brand values, and potential buyer personas. Using the provided suggestions, users can generate ideas and conduct research without ever leaving the app or losing their train of thought.

“We want to make it possible for anyone to use this technology directly where it has already proven to be most valuable — during the early stages of ideation,” explains Whimsical’s founder and CEO, Kaspars Dancis.

They’re also looking for feedback and “any other ideas you have for how we could apply AI to our products in the future.” Pitch in.
