Strapi, a San Francisco, CA and Paris, France-based maker of open source software for creating and delivering digital content across all devices, raised $10M in funding.
The round, which brought total funding raised to date to $14m, was led by Index Ventures with participation from Augusto Marietti and Marco Palladino, respectively CEO and CTO of Kong, David Cramer, co-founder and CTO of Sentry, Florian Douetteau, co-founder and CEO of Dataiku.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the development of its Headless CMS.
Founded in May 2016 as a school project in Paris, France by Pierre Burgy (CEO), Aurélien Georget (CPO) and Jim Laurie (CTO), Strapi provides an open-source “headless” content management system (CMS) for companies to distribute content over different communication channels: websites, web and mobile applications, and connected objects.
Through application programming interfaces (APIs), the platform enables companies to manage the distribution of this content from a single source and personalize the message so that it is more suited to each channel.
The company has 400 contributors, more than 1 million downloads and is in use at many Global 500 companies across all industries such as IBM, NASA and Walmart.
