We raise a $2.5m seed round led by DFJ
We’re thrilled to announce our $2.5m seed round led by DFJ. We also have support from Founders’ Co-Op, Liquid 2 Ventures, Techstars, Stanford University, and some amazing angel investors, including Ilya Sukhar and Alex Payne.
With these funds we can now focus on building our team in Portland, growing our developer community, and supporting our early customers and partners.
DFJ is the perfect partner. They’ve invested in some of the most iconic companies of our generation, including SpaceX and Tesla. They’ve invested in prominent developer-facing companies like Twilio, Mapbox, and Chef. Most importantly, they understand and support our vision for the future of developer APIs, user experience design, and big data.
Bill Bryant of DFJ will join our board. Bill brings a wealth of experience as a founder, investor, and board member. Also joining our board is Dave Hersh — founding CEO of Jive Software and an icon in the Portland tech community. We couldn’t be more excited.
To our investors, friends, and early adopters: thank you! Our journey is just beginning — thanks for coming on this ride with us. Onward and upward!
