近日,互链文档宣布完成天使轮融资,由火山石资本独家投资。
本轮融资将用于产品研发、开发手机APP端及市场推广。

Recently, Huleen announced the closing of angel round funding from Volcanics Venture exclusively. This round of funding will be used to develop product, mobile app, and marketing campaign.



互链文档属于上海文磨网络科技有限公司,创立于2019年,创始团队来自拼多多、阿里达摩院等国内一线企业。互链文档已于2020年进行小规模内测,并预计在2021年下半年正式对外发布。

Huleen from Shanghai Smoothnip Co., Ltd. was founded in 2019. The team members come from Pinduoduo, Alibaba DAMO Academy, and other China first-tier enterprises. Huleen was in private beta in 2020 and is scheduled for the second half of the 2021 release.

2020年上半年在海外爆火的Roam Research引入了“双向链接”的概念,通过快捷键在关键词上创建一篇新的文档,实现了将知识点进行抽象与关联;至此,在互链文档创始人张睿楠看来,这是一个新纪元的开始:笔记类产品将不仅仅是存储信息的工具,其衍生将会是一个可以聚合、抽象信息,并能启发自我思考,能够让我们按自己意愿呈现知识体系的工具。

In the first half of 2020, Roam introduced the concept of "networked thought," it designed to creat a document based on a keyword through shortcut, which realized the association amony abstraction knowledge. Zhang Ruinan, the founder of Huleen, said this is the beginning of a new era of note-taking products, it could become a tool that aggregate abstract information and inspire people to present knowledge systematically according to one's free will.

随着5G网络以及短视频平台的快速发展,人们获取信息的种类日见增多,大脑接收的信息数量也逐渐膨胀,个人的大脑空间已被占据的所剩无几,所以人们大脑已经显得越来越难以承受信息和知识的压力了。

the rapid development of 5G network and short video platform quicly lead to amount escalation of information. With the enormous expansion in the number of information, our brain has been fully occupied, so it becomes more and more difficult for us to bear the pressure of information and knowledge.

张睿楠告诉创业邦,这些压力可能来自三方面:第一是因为目前社会的信息爆炸。近几十年来互联网的发展,信息的传播基本不受节制,数量已经膨胀到了人类大脑无法消化的程度。第二是因为信息的囤积,人们开始借助于各类信息工具和备忘录。然而,比起囤积信息,如何整理这些信息成为了人们更头疼的事情。

Zhang Ruinan said these pressures may come from three aspects: first, the information explosion. With the development of the Internet in recent decades, the dissemination of information is basically unrestrained, and the amount of it has expanded to the extent that the human brain cannot process. Second, because of the information hoarding, people began to rely on various information tools and memos. However, compared to information hoarding, information organization bothers people more.

第三是信息孤岛,由于囤积信息过多,大脑无法快速检索或建立信息之间的联系。从而人们更加依赖于推荐或搜索算法,使人们越来越缺乏自主思考能力。张睿楠称,在后互联网时代中,我们中的部分人,可能会被高密度知识和信息压垮,或者终其一生只是在一个狭隘的知识领域里徘徊,又或者在算法推送的内容中虚度光阴。

The third is the information island. Due to the information accumulation, our brain can not quickly retrieve or establish the connection between information. As a result, people are more dependent on recommendation or search algorithm, which leads to critical thinking skills to be lacking in a lot of people. Zhang Ruinan said, in the Post Internet era, some of us might be overwhelmed by the high-density of knowledge and information, or spend their whole life wandering in a narrow field of knowledge, or idling about the content pushed by algorithms.

事实上,人类需要的不仅仅是存储信息的工具,更需要的是一个能够帮助我们聚合信息,能够启发我们思考、按自己意愿呈现信息的工具。我们需要的是一个真正属于自己的“超级大脑”,为此「互链」应运而生。

In fact, what we need is not only a tool to store information, but also a tool to help us aggregate information, inspire us to think and present information according to our free will. Huleen born for this, a "Super Brain" that really belongs to us.

互链不是一款简单的双向链笔记产品,与Roam Research之类产品不同,在互链中,你不仅可以链接自己的笔记,还能链接更多内容,互链希望成为真正关联万物的链接。

Huleen is not a simple two-way connection note product. Unlike Roam and other products, in Huleen, you can link more content other than your own notes, Huleen hope to become connection that could link everything for real.

张睿楠表示,互链可以在更多的场景中应用,例如,通过互链可以在文档中与博客资讯、办公文件、个人收藏(如微信、知乎等)之间建立关联,甚至可以边看B站边做笔记。互链使静态的文档变成一种互相链接的全新知识结构,构造一个属于自己的“超级大脑”。由此可以帮助不少职场工作人员、学生解决信息整理难的问题,实现真正的信息管理。

Zhang Ruinan said that Huleen could be applied in many scenarios. For example, Huleen could establish association between documents and blog, office documents, personal collections (such as wechat, Zhihu, etc.), and even take notes while watching bilibili. Huleen transform the static documents to a new knowledge structure of interlinkage, a "Super Brain." This could help many office workers and students to solve the information organziation and achieve real information management.

在谈及潜在市场规模时,张睿楠表示,基于种子用户画像分析,互链的潜在场景分别集中在学习、个人笔记、咨询分析等场景,张睿楠告诉创业邦,据不完全统计,个人云笔记市场用户总数约为8500万-9000万左右,市场增长速度约为每月增长130万-140万用户。市场规模十分庞大,不论是作家、律师、内容创作者这类专业知识工作者还是大学生、业余研究者或者个人极客,互链都能应用起来。

When talking about the potential market scale, Zhang Ruinan said that based on the seed users' portraits' analysis, the potential scenarios of Huleen are respectively focused on learning, personal notes, consultation and analysis. According to incomplete statistics, the total amount of personal cloud notes user is about 85 million to 90 million, and the market growth rate is about 1.3 million to 1.4 million users per month. The market scale is very large. Amony writers, lawyers, content creators, college students, amateur researchers, and geeks, Huleen could be widely used..

未来,互链将持续更新迭代产品,致力于成为人类超级大脑。张睿楠透露,团队目前也正在布局手机APP,将以更多元化的产品形式为用户服务。

In the future, Huleen will continue to iteration and strive to become a super brain. Zhang Ruinan said the team is also developing mobile app, which will serve users in a more diversified product form.

谈及投资逻辑,火山石资本创始合伙人章苏阳表示,火山石长期关注新一代的协同效率工具。远程办公和线上学习逐渐普及,用户对信息整理和信息记录的需求也不断提升。同时我们关注到海外的一些工具类产品,已经突破了单单是文档、表格的形式局限性,演化成适应不同场景的应用。人们按自己的想法对信息的安排处理追求是很强的,持续性的。我们相信互链无论从理念还是从场景应用上,都能满足不同人群的信息整理与创作的需求。

When it comes to investment logic, Zhang Suyang, the managing partner of Volcanics Venture, said that Volcanics Venture has focused on the new generation of collaborative efficiency tools constantly. With the popularity of telecommuting and online learning, users' demand for information collation and recording is also increasing. At the same time, we noticed that some overseas tool products had already broken the limitations of documents and tables, they evolved into applications that adapt to different scenarios. People's pursuit of information arrangement and processing in their own ways is very strong and persistent. We believe that Huleen no matter the concept or scenarios, could meet different people's needs of information collation and creation.
