Makeswift Raises $3M in Funding


Makeswift, an Atlanta, GA-based visual builder for Next.js websites, raised $3M in funding.

The round was led by Active Capital, with participation from other investors including Uncommon Capital and Silicon Road Ventures.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the adoption of its visual website builder that empowers marketers to build and manage websites without engineering intervention.

Led by CEO Alan Pledger, Makeswift works with visual editing for marketers who manage sites built on composable architecture using Next.js. By allowing engineers to integrate existing React components into its visual builder, marketers can work autonomously on the marketing sites they’re responsible for, using pre-configured building blocks to quickly spin up new pages or iterate on existing content.
