We use Trello for our product roadmap--it’s visual, easy to update, and customers love voting on features they’re excited about.

I use Trello as a CRM for our secondary customers, who are incubators, and I use Trello to manage those contacts and see where they are in the pipeline.

Trello is a super flexible, simple tool. We use it for a few different departments to create roadmaps.

Trello - Best Project Management Tools for Startups

Trello is a free project management tool that facilitates smooth collaboration across teams. Extremely user-friendly, intuitive and great for nontechnical audiences, Trello allows you to create lists and cards to manage projects, though it doesn’t have the extra bells and whistles of some of the bulkier project management tools. Its simple approach and friendly UX make Trello an especially good choice for Seed-stage and Series A startups that don’t have to support a big infrastructure or project pipeline.

Which startups use Trello?

Trello can be used by groups of all sizes, though it is most appreciated by early-stage startups who value its lightweight and straightforward approach to project management.

How much does Trello cost?

It’s free! Business Class and Enterprise packages (starting at $3.75/user/month) are available for organizations that desire additional features like single sign-on and an account feature, as well as additional security precautions like hourly data backup and full SLL protocol.
