Contentful raises $28 million in Series C funding for its content management system

Germany’s Contentful has raised $28 million in a Series C round led by General Catalyst Partners with participation from Benchmark Capital, Balderton Capital, and Point Nine Capital.

Contentful develops a content management system (CMS) for app developers and content creators. The company plans on investing the money in further product development, such as adding more features for integrating different extensions into CMS and increasing its staff from 140 to 190 next year.

“We’re living in the time of a Software Industrial Revolution, and Contentful is right in the middle of the action,” said CEO Sascha Konietzke. “Building a modern business means building software, and the way software is built changed dramatically. Developer teams are now using a modular software development stack based on purpose-built platform services that can be reused across all their applications.”

The company’s total funding to date now stands at $45 million.
