It really depends on the partner. Sometimes we use Trello or JIRA, and we’ve also used Asana. I never touch them, honestly, so I couldn't answer for their utility, but Trello is fine just to see who's in task. Asana is a little bit more robust.

We use Trello for its flexibility. It’s really simple for non-tech founders and also more sophisticated founders.

We use Trello internally, but I’ve used Basecamp with external freelancers or things on the creative side. From a standpoint of keeping work streams, transparency with deadlines, and real-time collaboration, I’ve found Trello to be the best. We tried Asana a couple times in the past, but it didn't work for us. It was too robust and clunky and when it comes to project management tools, less is more and user ease sharing and tagging people to know due dates has been better on Trello.

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.

How 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.
