Berlin-based Hygraph has raised $30 million in a Series B funding round. Based upon its frontend and backend agnostic platform that cuts out the middleware and connects siloed data from a wide range of sources into a single API, the fresh capital will help the company push the boundaries of federated content even further. In tandem with continued product development, the startup will scale its go-to-market plans, particularly eyeing North America.
Hygraph’s $30 million Series B round was led by One Peak, and saw the participation of existing investors Open Ocean, alongside Peak, SquareOne, and new angel investor Boris Lokschin (co-founder and CEO of Spryker Systems). To date, Hygraph/GraphCMS has raised $43.7 million.
Founded in 2017, Hygraph’s content federation API solution offers data-driven companies the ability to access any source of data on any front end of their choosing. Put simply, this means that content can be sourced from just about anywhere and then presented to an end-user on any device. This methodology can then be applied across engineering teams, content creators, and business units.
“In the same way the headless CMS changed content distribution, Hygraph is disrupting the integration of content and data to enable the creation of new digital services and business models in the content economy,” said Hygraphy CEO and co-founder Michael Lukaszczyk. “Our new funding round will allow us to further scale our business, as we aim to do for content management what the likes of MuleSoft did for integration.”
