Contentful Adds $33.5 Million in Series D Funding to Deliver Content Infrastructure for the Modern Technology Stack
Contentful, a provider of content infrastructure for digital teams, has announced $33.5 million in Series D equity funding. Led by Sapphire Ventures, with participation from OMERS Ventures, Salesforce Ventures, and existing backers including General Catalyst, Benchmark, Balderton Capital and Hercules, this round brings Contentful’s total funding to $78.3 million.
Contentful says is helping organizations make the transition from legacy content management systems (CMS) to content infrastructure. This approach, designed for modern tech stacks and agile teams, unifies all content and makes it ready to deploy to any digital platform.
With the new funding, Contentful will enhance its content infrastructure offerings, further improve the practitioner experience and provide a comprehensive solution for global brands and large-scale organizations, said Sascha Konietzke, CEO and co-founder of Contentful.
According to Contentful, legacy CMSs force developers to use preset frameworks, workflows, and languages to deploy content in websites and applications. Contentful’s content infrastructure is a cloud-native, API-based platform that integrates with modern technology stacks and software delivery pipelines. That enables organizations to more quickly and easily build innovative digital experiences for any channel.
The newly acquired capital will be used to further strategic partnerships, expanding on the recently announced Solutions Partner Program that was launched to help digital agencies and their clients modernize their technology stack for multi-channel content development and delivery. The funds will also be used to improve the practitioner experience, with enhanced authoring workflows and integrations with tools for optimization, personalization, and more.
