About Coast

Coast is a seed stage company founded in 2018 that aims to be the operating system for the mobile workforce – the dominant worker community that consists of people that do not sit behind a desk.

Coast combines chat with lightweight workflows (employee scheduling, maintenance work order management, and more) that can be visualized as a list, kanban board, or calendar all built via a no-code platform. We offer a very easy to use product that enables the team to communicate and to get work done.

Most of our customers use Coast on a personal smartphone and the app makes it easy to maintain boundaries between each person’s work and personal life. The usage is intense and during the work week, our customers are using the product around 60 minutes a day with strong long term retention.

  • The market we are going after is massive and way underserved (see above). It’s time we empower every worker with modern tools (say bye bye texting and paper) so they can live their best work life.
  • We have hundreds of new signups a day that self-serve into using the product, and there will be no shortage of leads to talk to and learn from.
