Today, we’re thrilled to announce our Series A investment in Webflow, a uniquely powerful platform that’s democratizing software development for millions of designers, freelancers, marketers and agencies around the world. Webflow’s visual development platform takes design inputs from users, automates the code on the backend and enables over 1 million designers and 45 thousand paying users with little to no technical background to create sophisticated websites and applications in drastically less time than traditional methods. It’s a remarkable product and it must be seen to be believed.
We first met the Webflow team four years ago, and were immediately struck by their sincere dedication to a dual mission: to enable web creation for anyone, and to promote fulfilling, impactful lives for their employees while doing it. Co-Founders Vlad, Bryant and Sergie have created a truly special company that cares about its employees and customers above all else. In the years since, the effusive love we’ve heard from both employees and customers is overwhelming. And they’ve gotten to this point having only raised a small seed round, which has instilled a level of financial and operational discipline that’s increasingly rare to find in companies today.
In the years and decades to come, the web will continue to proliferate. So far, it has largely been built by developers armed with technical knowledge and experience to support them. We believe Webflow and its no-code foundation are changing the entire software development paradigm, enabling the next generation of creators to maximize their creativity like never before.
We’re honored to partner with Vlad, Bryant, Sergie and the Webflow team, as they continue to push the boundaries of web design and software creation, and we’re excited to build a truly impactful company together.
