RapidAPI Acquires Paw


RapidAPI, a San Francisco, CA-based API Platform that enables developers and enterprises to find, connect to, and manage thousands of APIs, acquired Paw, an API design and collaboration tool.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

The acquisition enables RapidAPI to extend its open API platform across the entire API development lifecycle, creating a connected experience for developers from API development to consumption, across multiple clouds and gateways.

Additionally, the two companies announced the first collaboration between the two companies – Paw will now support Windows and Linux in addition to Mac. With Paw, users can development workflows and streamline API collaboration, enabling organizations to accelerate API delivery and improve the developer experience.

Founded in 2014 by Micha Mizaheri, CEO, Paw is a full-featured API design tool for API design, discovery, and collaboration. Paw enables users to visually build API requests and describe each parameter through textual descriptions, typing, and constraints.

As part of the RapidAPI platform, Paw provides a fully-featured API client that supports complex design and development workflows with UX, cross-platform collaboration, and integration with RapidAPI Marketplace and RapidAPI Enterprise Hub. It supports any type of web API, with an emphasis on REST and GraphQL APIs.

Led by Iddo Gino, founder and CEO, RapidAPI is an API Marketplace used by millions of developers to find, test and connect to thousands of APIs—all with a single account, API key and SDK.
