Contentstack Raises $80 Million Series C Co-Led by Georgian and Insight Partners to Accelerate the Path to Composable for Enterprise
November 15th, 2022
As companies challenge the status quo and demand more value from digital investment, Contentstack commits to their success
AUSTIN, Texas – November 15, 2022 – Contentstack, the Content Experience Platform (CXP) category leader and composable architecture pioneer, today announced $80 million in Series C funding. Georgian and Insight Partners co-led the round with participation from Illuminate Ventures. All three companies continue to grow their investment with Contentstack, contributing to a $169 million total raised thus far. The Company will use the funds to continue supporting enterprise companies on their path to composable, empowering them to meet consumer demand for omnichannel and personalized experiences.
Georgian’s Lead Investor Emily Walsh will join the Contentstack board along with Contentstack CFO David Overmyer.
“We look for high-growth companies with great leadership and a strong work culture. We also love to help disruptors do what they do best,” said Walsh. “For all these reasons, we chose to double down on our investment. Contentstack’s ability to ensure customers are successful while also innovating at record speeds positions them as the leader in the CMS market. We are proud to co-lead this round and provide the Company with the support required for true category leadership.”
As the only headless CMS offering a solution to “integration hell” with Automation Hub, Contentstack delivers a viable path to composable for enterprises. By automating and streamlining hundreds of activities across technologies and vendors in real-time, enterprises can now more aggressively retire costly legacy content management systems (CMS). This also allows them to unlock digital experience innovation more broadly and realize a significantly greater return-on-investment.
The Company’s flagship Care Without CompromiseTM program ensures cross-vendor support in composable environments. With Automation Hub and Care Without Compromise, Contentstack is again at the forefront of the composable movement, which strives to set customers up for success in today’s rapidly changing business and technology landscape.
"We started Contentstack years ago because other solutions in the market did not meet the growing demand for cloud, omnichannel, and ease of working with other technologies," said Neha Sampat, Contentstack’s founder and CEO. "Embracing composable means embracing change, empowering teams, getting more bang for your buck, and continuing to win in a tough economic environment. With the best composable content platform and the industry's best customer care, Contentstack is determined to help companies on their path. For enterprises ready to challenge the status quo, Contentstack will not only be your ally every step of the way. We go beyond that – we won’t let you fail.”
Since Contentstack’s Series B in June 2021, its expertise has led to growth in size and scale of use cases as more enterprises have adopted composable architecture at the center of their digital strategies. The Company:
Grew to more than 400 employees and approaching 50K+ users in 70+ global markets
Doubled the number of customers served and nearly tripled ARR, while maintaining a 97% customer retention rate
Scaled with the largest global brands – 42% with greater than $1B in revenue, 35% of them are publicly traded
Delivered a cloud-agnostic solution supporting both AWS and Microsoft Azure in the US and Europe
Contentstack also won six 2022 Comparably Best Places to Work Awards and was honored as an Inc. Best Workplaces in 2021. Austin Business Journal named CEO Neha Sampat one of Austin’s Best CEOs in 2022.
