Apollo, a San Francisco, CA-based leader in GraphQL API technology, raised $22m in growth funding.
The round was co-led by Andreessen Horowitz and Matrix Partners, with participation from existing investors Trinity Ventures and Webb Investment Network. In conjunction with the funding, Andreessen Horowitz General Partner Peter Levine will join the Apollo Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its business reach and invest in both the open source and commercial elements of the Apollo Data Graph Platform.
Led by Geoff Schmidt, co-founder and CEO, Apollo provides technology that allows app developers to build a data graph on top of their company’s existing APIs and services to accelerate development. It provides the tools companies need to secure, protect, and monitor their data graph.
Apollo’s platform limits data graph queries to only those that have been authorized, works with Continuous Integration systems to protect the graph from breaking changes, and continuously monitors the performance of graph queries.
Customers include Expedia, Airbnb, Audi, SurveyMonkey, and others.
