About Us

Mavenlink’s mission is to level the playing field for service businesses with enterprise-grade growth management software and expertise, empowering companies worldwide to work faster and smarter.

Our Mission

In everything we do, we challenge the notion that only big business can have sophisticated and technically advanced management software tools and business support. We believe that every business deserves a chance to succeed and that’s why we’ve set out to level the playing field.

Our Growth Management Software has exceptional technical features that outperform current existing and “accepted” models in the on-line categories of collaboration, social networking, project management and financial control. The Mavenlink team works ahead of emerging technology trends and vigorously reviews customer needs and usage requirements so that new products and features are designed for relevance. This “step ahead” strategy allows us to effectively compete in regards to requested features and technology enhancements.

Mavenlink allows companies of all types and sizes to manage the entire lifecycle of project-based relationships including, project & team management, messaging & conversations, time & expenses, invoicing & online payments, file management, and financial reporting. Mavenlink gives you the ability to conduct business online with anyone, anywhere and it’s happening now in 190 countries around the world.
