Appwrite has raised $27 million in a Series A round led by Tiger Global Management. The round also included Bessemer Venture Partners, Flybridge Capital, Ibex Investors, and Seedcamp. The new funding will allow the company to expand its global team. While the new funding is an important step, it is not the only major development for the company.
Appwrite raises $27 million in Series A round
Open source BaaS platform Appwrite has raised $27 million in Series A round of funding led by Tiger Global Management. The round also included participation from Bessemer Venture Partners and Seedcamp. The funding will help Appwrite expand internationally and support its open source community. It will allow developers to build applications without worrying about coding.
Appwrite is one of the fastest growing open source platforms with more than 150,000 developers and 550 maintainers worldwide. The company has recently added a native Android SDK and real-time capabilities. With the new funding, the company will continue to add new features to its ecosystem of APIs. It plans to increase its engineering team and hire more people to boost marketing and sales. It also hopes to expand its team worldwide.
The company has a unique business model. Unlike Google Firebase, which is reliant on Google’s infrastructure, Appwrite is self-hosted and open source, allowing developers to build their own applications without worrying about how to deploy them. Its security and simplicity are attracting developers, says Tiger Global Management partner John Curtius. “This model of backend-as-a-service is becoming a hot commodity,” he adds.
Appwrite is a platform for building secure applications with the use of APIs. The platform includes a self-hosted version, REST APIs, and a database for storing data. Appwritre also offers Cloud Functions to simplify storage and image manipulation.
In addition to a Series A round, Limehome, a Munich-based apartment rental platform, raised $14 million led by G Squared. This round also included Octopus Ventures and Picus Capital. The company has raised $7 million in seed funding led by Ballistic Ventures and Parallel Finance.
Appwrite plans to expand its global team
Appwrite plans to use its latest round of funding to increase its global team and focus on engineering and marketing. The funds will also help the company advance its cloud product in the market and expand its open source community. Appwrite’s founder started out as a self-taught software developer and now runs a company devoted to helping developers build great products.
As an open source project, AppWrite is able to be self-hosted, but the company also plans to offer managed services. While this technology is still in its early stages, Fux says the concept of backend-as-a-service is gaining traction among developers. This approach allows AppWrite to focus on security and simplicity, two important aspects of building a robust ecosystem.
Besides building secure applications, Appwrite is also developing a platform that helps developers work on their projects faster and more efficiently. With its SDK, developers can easily build and run their apps, which means they have more time to focus on building new products and innovation. They don’t need to mix and match different cloud vendors because Appwrite offers a single solution that leverages their existing knowledge.
Appwrite is an open source backend server for web applications that is easy to install and configure. It includes many features such as database, storage, users, geolocation, localization, and console. It is also portable, secure, and scalable. It is built on the Docker platform and is available for on-premises and cloud.

Meanwhile, Washington, D.C.-based startup Corsha also raised $12 million from Eleven Ventures and Razor’s Edge Ventures. These companies all invested alongside Axie Infinity COO Aleksander Larsen.

The company has raised $8 million in seed funding led by Deciens Capital. Other investors include Anthemis Group and Hustle Fund VC.
Appwrite was also successful in repositioning its business model and has secured a Series B round led by Bessemer Venture Partners and GV. The company specializes in providing software for businesses. Its technology allows developers to create applications without any coding experience.
Appwrite has raised a series A round of funding from Tiger Global Management. The round also included Bessemer Venture Partners, Flybridge Capital, Ibex Investors, and Seedcamp.

Bessemer Venture Partners
Appwrite, a startup whose software makes it easier for developers to build apps, recently raised a $10 million seed round from Bessemer Venture Partners, Flybridge Capital, and Ibex Investors. Appwrite is an open-source platform that offers core tools and services for developers of various development platforms.
Its name, “Appwrite,” is a Chinese character. It means “buy now, pay later.” The company’s CEO, Jing-Ying Wang, previously worked at Razorpay and American Express, and he sold a startup that specialized in e-learning. It’s expanding its product offerings and focuses on SMEs.
Appwrite is an end-to-end BaaS platform for building backend and mobile apps. The company is targeting the citizen developer community. It raised $27 million in a series A round. This round of funding is intended to help the company launch its next products.
The company will use the new capital to expand its platform globally and focus on engineering and marketing. It will also focus on expanding its ecosystem of open source SDKs. The company plans to hire more developers and hire a larger marketing team. It will also use the funds to add more features to its platform.
Tiger Global Management, LLC is an American investment firm that invests in various industries, including consumer, software, and financial technology. The company’s mission is to make money by identifying and investing in companies that offer opportunities for growth. The company focuses on investments in software, consumer products, and the internet. Currently, the firm has more than $18 billion in assets under management.
The firm has seen its assets under management rise exponentially in recent years, but it’s taken a step back to reflect on its performance and streamline its operations. According to an investor letter obtained by TechCrunch, Tiger Global is adjusting its investment strategy to reduce costs. As an SEC-registered investment manager, it must adhere to its fiduciary duty to serve the best interest of its clients.
Tiger Global Management is an investment firm that specializes in growth equity investments in the internet, consumer, and financial technology sectors. It prefers to invest in companies that are at the early-stage or pre-IPO stage. In addition, it uses fundamental analysis to evaluate investments in public and private markets. Additionally, it sources long and short investment opportunities in various regions around the world.
Although the departure of Curtius will impact Tiger Global’s performance, it’s unlikely to have a major impact on the firm’s portfolio companies. Moreover, the firm plans to begin fundraising from LPs soon after Curtius’ departure. The company’s venture capital efforts are also continuing to expand. A private equity associate from Hellman & Friedman and a growth equity investor from Apax Digital recently joined the team.
However, the long-only fund of Tiger Global Management is one of the worst performing in the industry and has fallen more than half a billion dollars year-to-date. Earlier this year, the firm cut its fees in response to the poor performance of its long-only fund. The fund’s losses are even higher as it relies on Chinese equities. The firm managed $60 billion in assets as of Sept. 30.
Tiger Global Management’s private equity investments are concentrated in software startups. About 70% of its private portfolio consists of these companies. The firm’s private equity business is led by Scott Shleifer, while its consumer Internet business is headed by Griffin Schroeder. The investment strategy includes investing in private and public consumer internet companies.
In recent years, China has been a drag on the global economy. The company is continuing to invest in private equity funds, but the company has scaled back its exposure to China. Regulatory crackdowns have wiped out many funds. China’s invasion of Taiwan has pushed even more investors to rethink their China exposure. But Tiger wants more clarity about China’s growth prospects. It hopes to receive clarity at the Politburo central committee economic work conference in December, which is usually chaired by President Xi.
The new investment will be used to purchase shares from existing shareholders, and to support the growth of the company. The company continues to invest in areas that can lead to significant growth such as media performance optimization, connected TV analytics, and more. The support from these high-caliber investors speaks to DoubleVerify’s momentum and growth potential. Tiger Global looks forward to working with the management team at DoubleVerify.
Appwrite is an alternative to Google Firebase for mobile developers, and it’s self-hosted and open source, meaning developers can develop apps without tying up Google’s infrastructure. Tiger Global Management partner John Curtius says the concept of backend-as-a-service is gaining traction with developers. The security and simplicity of Appwrite’s platform have made it a compelling choice. Its leadership team has helped develop a strong ecosystem for the service.
The new funding round will enable Appwrite to grow its global team and continue expanding the company’s product. The company plans to focus on engineering and marketing while advancing its cloud product and its open source community. To date, the company has raised $27 million through a series of seed rounds and angel investors.
