Strapi, the open-source ‘headless’ content management system (CMS), has raised $31 million in Series B funding led by CRV, bringing the company’s total funding to $45 million. Flex Capital and Index Ventures also participated in the round along with new angel investors including former Github CEO, Nat Friedman, Algolia co-founder Nicolas Dessaigne, and Netlify CEO, Mathias Biilmann Christensen.
More than 25,000 companies use Strapi to save countless hours developing future-proof applications – making content management more composable and collaborative. There are already more than 2,000 Strapi plug-ins and providers that have been developed to date. To find the best Strapi plug-ins in this massive and open ecosystem, Strapi announced the launch of Strapi Market, the official marketplace giving users the option to leverage new features or integrations as part of their projects.
The PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) approach embraces the company’s open source DNA and preserves Strapi’s unique customization capabilities. With Strapi Cloud, the company is offering a seamless deployment process that enables developers to start their project locally, customize it according to their needs, version it through Git, and deploy it in seconds.
General availability is planned for 2023. In the meantime, those interested in the beta program can join the waitlist.
