Tellie, a Los Angeles, CA-based sitebuilder for web2 and web3 creators, raised $10M in Series A funding.

New investors Malibu Point Capital, Galaxy Digital, Osage Venture Partners, Dapper Labs, SXSW Innovation Fund, and Gaingels joined existing investors including Corazon Capital, TQ Ventures, and Upfront Ventures which incubated the company.

The company intends to use the funds to hire talent, open up the platform to all creators, and launch the Tellie Collections marketplace to build the onramp from web2 to web3.

Led by CEO Kim Nortman, Tellie provides a no-code content and commerce platform that allows creators to build token-gated websites for every project. Creators can gate pages with exclusive content, products, tickets, and other access behind Polygon, Ethereum, Binance, Avalanche, and Flow tokens, with support for Solana coming soon. With Tellie Collections and gated pages, anyone can fund their passions and power tiered fan clubs directly from a branded site. 

The Tellie Collections marketplace will be minted on creator-owned smart contracts via Polygon, without any gas fees. Currently in private Beta, creators can mint NFTs that can be used to unlock gated pages on Tellie. Soon all creators will be able to mint and sell Collections on Tellie, and fans will be able to purchase them using cryptocurrency or credit card while unlocking exclusive content and experiences.
