About Corilla

Corilla's formation was inspired by an experience working on an internal publishing startup at Red Hat. In a forgotten corner of an office tucked away in Australia, a group of technical writers built their own open source CCMS. The result took over nearly two thirds of the company's global software documentation.Travelling internationally to share these insights at techcomms and software documentation conferences globally, Corilla cofounder David Ryan observed a common pattern. Technical writers were complaining about being forced to use tools that they disliked to create documentation that customers no longer read.Leaving Red Hat to focus on this problem full time, Corilla gained the support of Red Hat's cofounder and first CEO, Bob Young, leading an initial angel round. Shortly after the team packed its bags after an invitation to join Google Launchpad in Paris, France, and then stayed on as the first international startup accepted into the NUMA Sprint Accelerator .Since completing the intense acceleration program, Corilla has grown a global community and launched a public beta release. You can follow our journey onthe blog or twitter and as always, we would love to hear from you.
