Kontent.ai Raises $40M in Funding


Kontent.ai, a Brno, Czech Republic-based headless CMS company, raised $40m in funding.

The investment was made by Expedition Growth Capital.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its global presence helping enterprise teams scale their content operations.

Kontent.ai is a modular content platform that enables marketers and developers to plan, create, and deliver experiences for any channel. Powering over 2,000 projects including websites, apps and headless commerce experiences, the company was originally started in 2015 as a business unit of 18-year old bootstrapped company Kentico. Today, Kontent.ai employs over 120 employees across five offices on four different continents. As a new independent company, it is ready to hire 100 employees in the next 12 months. 

In 2021, global companies such as Algolia, Anaplan, SonarSource, the University of Oxford, Unum Insurance and Zurich Insurance use Kontent.ai their modular content platform of choice to ensure consistent content strategies across languages and regions.

As part of the announcement, the separation into two separate companies also means changes to the position of CEO. The newly formed Kontent.ai company will be led by Bart Omlo while Kentico will be led by Dominik Pintér. The current CEO and founder of Kentico, Petr Palas will move to the role of Chairman of the Board for both companies. Kentico has recently introduced a new cloud-native generation of its flexible digital experience platform called Xperience by Kentico, a separate DXP tool for midmarket companies which it will continue to develop.
