SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 19, 2016) - ChatWork , Asia's leading business chat platform , today announced that it secured $12.5M in Series B funding from JAFCO and other investors to further enhance the product and spur additional use in the U.S., Europe and Latin America.

"We are proud to make one of our biggest investments by JAFCO SV4, our latest flagship fund, in ChatWork," said Keisuke Miyoshi, a board member of JAFCO Co. Ltd., the largest and most prestigious venture capital firm in Japan. "Given ChatWork's proven success, we believe they are uniquely positioned to accelerate their global expansion and further innovate business chat for the future of work."
With ChatWork, coworkers and outside clients, freelancers and business partners benefit from this faster, more modern way of working that allows them to meet on common ground, bond over a shared coffee cup emoji and become stronger teams.

"As businesses expand globally, teams need to work together across different locations, time zones, cultures, languages and generations.
