Appwrite, the open source Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform for web, mobile and flutter developers, has raised $27 million in its Series A round, led by Tiger Global Management and followed by seed round participants Bessemer Venture Partners, Flybridge Capital Partners, Ibex Investors, and Seedcamp. Appwrite will use this latest funding round to expand its fully remote and global team across all departments with an emphasis on engineering and marketing, advance its cloud product for the market and sustain open source community for generations to come.
Appwrite is a self-hosted solution that offers developers a set of easy-to-use REST APIs to manage their core backend needs. It is one of the fastest growing open-source platforms on GitHub today with more than 150,000 developers and 550 maintainers around the globe.
Since the seed round, Appwrite has introduced real-time capabilities, a native Software Development Kit (SDK) for both Android and iOS, and major upgrades to existing services.
