We use Basecamp for shareholder communication and Asana is for personal lists.

I am pretty happy with Basecamp. We just brought on a product manager who will help us get better at utilizing all the tools. Often with project management software, half the battle is becoming well versed with the full range of tools it offers.

Our team loves Basecamp and we use it to streamline projects and organize conversations and tasks. We’d certainly enjoy some additional functionality with the levels of organization but the redesign of Basecamp 3 is solid!

Basecamp - Best Project Management Tools for Startups

Basecamp is a project management tool that blends power and ease of use. Most Stacklist users place it squarely in between Trello and Asana. Basecamp is not as simple as Trello, but not quite as complicated as Asana. Basecamp offers the out-of-the-box usability of Trello, but with the addition of helpful, practical features like a calendar, timelines, file-sharing and discussions. However, if customizability is important to you, Basecamp is not your best bet.

How startups use Basecamp?

Though Basecamp has customers of all sizes and industries, among the Stacklist community it’s favored by Series A startups looking for a lightweight project management tool with additional functionality to help their team stay on the same page.

How much does Basecamp cost?

Basecamp has five pricing packages, defined by the number of active projects your company is involved in, as well how much storage space you need. It starts at $20 a month for 10 active projects and 3 GB of space. It then scales to $50 a month for 40 active projects and 15GB of space; $100 a month for 100 projects and 40GB; and $150 a month for unlimited projects and 100GB. Basecamp also has an annual package that goes for $3,000 a year, and includes unlimited projects, 500GB and priority support.
