London-based Ziflow, a creative collaboration and online proofing platform for agencies and brands, has raised £16m ($20m) in Series A funding.

The funding was led by Riverside Acceleration Capital (RAC) and Companyon Ventures.

Anthony Welgemoed, co-founder and CEO of Ziflow, said: “This investment will allow us to continue growing our amazing team around the world and to power new forms of innovation in our platform, including a long list of significant new features and software integrations.

“2022 was an epic year for Ziflow, as thousands of marketing and creative teams all over the world were able to feel the impact that a streamlined creative workflow can bring to their organizations.

“With the support of the amazing teams at RAC and Companyon, we’re committed to delivering an unparalleled experience for our customers—and this funding will allow us to do just that.”

Ziflow is built around six core values and Welgemoed said the most important one was that ‘the customer is the hero’.

He explained: “They are always at the centre of what we do. They are our focal point as we help them solve challenges around feedback, review, and approval.”

The company have been working on their redesigned dashboard Ziflow 2.0.

Welgemoed added: We’re also launching a mobile app for Ziflow, so you can manage your assets and approvals from anywhere. The mobile app will allow you to review and approve assets on-the-go, making the approval process more convenient and efficient.
