About us

A brief history of Trello

  • Around the summer of 2010, Fog Creek Software starts doing regular Creek Weeks, internal explorations for potential products. In January 2011, a prototype that hopes to solve some high-level planning issues is pitched. It’s called Trellis. Full-time development begins soon after.
  • After a closed beta, Trello launches at TechCrunch Disrupt in September of 2011 with apps for the web and iPhone. We narrowly avoid names like Cardvark and Planatee and go with the name Trello.
  • In the summer of 2012, Fog Creek co-founder Joel Spolsky’s dog Taco becomes the official Trello spokes-husky. Trello reaches 500,000 members and launches the Trello Android app.
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements.
  • In July 2014, Trello spins off from Fog Creek and becomes Trello, Inc. naming Fog Creek co-founder Michael Pryor as its CEO. The company raises $10.3 million in a Series A round of funding led by Spark Capital and Index Ventures. Trello has over 4.75 million users.
  • In May 2015, Trello goes international, with localized experiences for Brazil, Germany, and Spain.
  • In early 2017, Trello is acquired by Atlassian and begins the next chapter in empowering teams everywhere.
