Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve raised a $13 million Series B financing led by our investors at NEA. We’ve actually worked with NEA since our company was only a few weeks old — first as a part of the Seed round we raised during Y Combinator and again when they led our Series A in September of 2013 — and we’re delighted to further our partnership with them today. We’re also excited to officially welcome NEA Partner Chetan Puttagunta to the Swiftype board.
Swiftype has come a long way since graduating from Y Combinator in March of 2012. Quin and I started the company alone in an apartment in Mountain View, CA, adding Luke Francl and Oleksiy Kovyrin as quickly as we could convince them, and then the team stayed that size for a while. But today we’re a team of over 25 incredibly talented individuals, and our business has grown similarly. Today we power billions of queries every month across hundreds of thousands of websites, mobile applications, and SaaS applications. Along the way we’ve had the privilege of working with many fantastic companies, including Qualcomm, CloudFlare, Shopify, and Twitch. It has taken a tremendous amount of dedication — and a lot of hard work — from our entire team to get to where we are today, and I couldn’t be more proud of the progress we’ve made so far.
Looking ahead, these new funds will fuel our continued growth as we look to bring on more search engineers, expand our sales and marketing efforts, and establish a stronger position of leadership within the search industry.
