About Katana

Katana is on a mission to build software that manufacturers love as much as the products they make.

Before a single line of code was written, our co-founders Kristjan and Priit raised $700,000 from investors with a 10-slide presentation in April 2017.

With the help of two developers and a designer, they built the very first prototype a month later. And by the end of the year, Katana went live, and welcomed its first paying customers in early 2018.

Since those early days, Katana has evolved dramatically, becoming a cloud manufacturing platform, offering built-in inventory, production, and reporting features to give you an end-to-end ERP solution for modern businesses.

From our HQ in Tallinn, with the help of staff across North America, Europe and New Zealand, we’re helping manufacturers use the best software available for every element of their business with Katana uniting them all in a single platform.

Our product may evolve, but our mission remains the same – to give all manufacturers the live insights they need in a world where change is the only constant.

Manufacturers should be able to use new software when they need it, without losing key data or seeing their numbers go out of sync.

Our values

Think like a maker

There is no Katana without makers, and we measure our success by how much we can impact their lives for the better.

Be there and be open

Success is a team effort, and knowing when to offer and ask for help is what sets great teammates apart.

Go beyond the benchmark

Goals are meant to be surpassed, and the only way to do that is to continuously challenge what you think is possible.

Embrace being you

You are the sum of your best features and strangest quirks, and we want to see the good and the weird.
