Boston-Based Startup Slim.AI Raises $31 Million Series A


Slim.AI , focused on cloud-native application development building a developer platform atop the popular DockerSlim open-source project, has raised a $31 million series A round co-led by New York-based global venture capital and private equity firm Insight Partners as well as StepStone Group, with participation by Knollwood.

Co-founded by John Amaral and Kyle Quest in January 2021, Slim.AI provides developers with the necessary tools to ship secure, production-ready containers in an automated, repeatable and transparent way, and without the need for specialized expertise.

Investors are excited about the possibilities for a security-focused, developer-first enterprise SaaS company built on a popular open-source project. Slim.AI has achieved strong traction through its open source, early access SaaS platform and initial engagements with organizations looking to modernize their cloud-native workflows.
