Polybit Inc., the San Francisco, CA-based company behind the Standard Library of the Internet (StdLib), secured $2m in seed funding.
The round was led by BlueYard Capital, with participation from Joe Montana’s Liquid 2 Ventures, Aston Motes, Michael Dabrowski, and the Nordic Makers Venture Group, which includes David Helgason, founder of Unity.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop the platform.
Founded in 2016 by Keith Horwood and Jacob Lee in San Francisco, Polybit created StdLib, the Standard Library of the Internet, a Function as a Service Platform and Library, available for developers to use worldwide. The platform abstracts infrastructure away using “serverless” architecture, allowing developers to write anything from simple functions to complex business logic, then deploy their code as infinitely scalable, fully-documented web APIs.
StdLib can be used to write, iterate and ship software that prospects and evaluate leads based on e-mail or IP address using third party APIs like Clearbit or Mattermark. Developers have deployed tens of thousands of services to date.
