Contentful, a San Francisco, California-based content infrastructure company, has secured $28 million in Series C financing.
The new funding round, which brings the company’s total funding raised to date to $45 million, was led by General Catalyst Partners, with participation from existing investors, Benchmark Capital, Balderton Capital, and Point Nine Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to double down on their content infrastructure capabilities, growing its partner network, building its developer ecosystem, and scaling solution engineering and supporting enterprises.
Co-founded in 2014 by Sascha Konietzke and Paolo Negri, Contentful provides an infrastructure making content accessible via APIs and editable in a CMS-like web app. Companies such as Spotify, Urban Outfitters, Red Bull, Jack in the Box, The British Museum, Xoom, Lenovo and many others rely on Contentful to author, manage, and deliver digital content to any device and multiple platforms.
“With all of these new funds, we’re planning to grow our partner network and continue building out our developer ecosystem to spread the content infrastructure word to those who could benefit. To accomplish this, we will continue to invest in talent, operating out of our offices in Berlin, Germany and San Francisco,” said Sascha Konietzke, Founder and CEO of Contentful.
“We’ve completely focused the company on our vision to become the underlying content infrastructure for any digital product, whether it be a website, app, or device.We’re living in the time of a Software Industrial Revolution, and Contentful is right in the middle of the action,” Konietzke said. “Building a modern business means building software, and the way software is built changed dramatically. Developer teams are now using a modular software development stack based on purpose-built platform services that can be reused across all their applications.”
