Monday.com is now valued at $1.9 billion, nearly four times more than last year’s valuation.

However, monday.com still has a long way to go to rival the two major team collaboration platforms: Microsoft Teams and Slack. Teams serves more than five times the amount of monday.com’s organizational users, and Slack’s market cap is ten times more than monday.com’s $1.9 billion valuation.
