monday.com’s history

monday.com was founded in 2012 and originally went by a different name, daPulse. The software was commercially launched in 2014 and later changed its name to Monday.com in 2017. In the same year, it was named one of the Top 15 Fastest Growing Companies by Deloitte.

After several rounds of funding, Monday.com was valued at more than one billion dollars in 2019. This meant the company gained “unicorn” status and joined the ranks of other prominent tech companies like ByteDance, SpaceX, and Stripe.

In 2019 and again in 2020, the company won Webby Awards for Work & Productivity Apps and Software. monday.com launched “Monday 2.0” in 2020 as a “work operating system that enables organizations of any size to build custom apps” that meet specific business needs. The company filed for an IPO in May 2021 and officially became a publicly-traded company in June 2021.

The company began styling the name of its project management system with a lower-case M (monday.com) in early 2022.
