Asana was a little too robust for our needs so we stopped using it. It is good for some recurring tasks.

Asana - Best Project Management Tools for Startups

Asana is the dream tool for the list-makers and taskmasters of the world. It is a comprehensive project management tool that allows you to create lists and task boards to manage projects. A variety of additional features, including email integration and sub-task checklists, help Asana stand out against other project management tools. Its balance of usability and robust features makes Asana a popular choice among startups, though some entrepreneurs find it unnecessarily complex.

Which startups use Asana?

Asana is free to use for small teams, which has given it a firm user base of seed-stage startups. But many small teams prefer a simpler tool. Asana’s most loyal users are Series A and smaller Series B startups; they appreciate Asana’s broader array of features versus simpler platforms like Trello, but don’t yet need the more technical feature set of a project management heavyweight like JIRA.

How much does Asana cost?

Asana is free for teams of up to 15 people, although a premium plan can be purchased at any time to unlock more members and more features. Plans start at $21 per month for up to five additional members.
