Strapi Raises $10M in Funding


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.

Strapi provides “backend” functionality for mobile applications or any type of connected object. It is also particularly suitable for websites designed according to the JAMstack model (JavaScript, API and pre-rendered markup, served without Web servers). Strapi is designed to work with the most popular front-end frameworks including Gatsby, Nuxt, Next.js or any other static site generator, it supports most databases and can be requested using both REST and GraphQL.

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.
