Contentful Raises $33.5 Million in Funding Round to Expand its Content Management Platform
Contentful, content infrastructure provider for digital teams, is receiving $33.5 million in Series D equity funding to further partnerships, integrations, and innovations.
Led by Sapphire Ventures, with participation from OMERS Ventures, Salesforce Ventures, and existing backers including General Catalyst, Benchmark, Balderton Capital and Hercules, this brings total funding for Contentful to $78.3 million.
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.
Contentful is leading 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. Contentful’s approach has seen huge adoption in the enterprise, including Fortune 500 companies, disruptive startups, and top digital agencies.
Legacy CMSes 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 seamlessly integrates with modern technology stacks and software delivery pipelines. That enables organizations to more quickly and easily build innovative digital experiences for any channel.
