2013 has been an incredibly fast-paced and exciting year at Gigya. We’ve seen our client roster jump to more than 700 of the world’s largest business, witnessed the reach of our Connected Consumer Management Suite extend to more than 1.5 billion unique users per month, and hired a new CFO, Paul Farmer, to help us expand and grow our business.
Today I’m excited and proud to announce that Gigya has secured $25 million in additional funding to help us continue building our team and product offerings to meet increased demand for our technology. The new round of funding was led by Greenspring Associates and includes existing Gigya investors Benchmark Capital, Mayfield Fund, DAG Ventures and Advance Publications.
When I first started at Gigya as the second U.S. employee back in 2007, I knew I was working at a special place but never imagined how far we would come in just six years and that I’d be lucky enough to work with such a smart, talented and ambitious team that is truly changing the way businesses and consumers interact online.
We have big plans for the future; and with the additional funding, Gigya will continue building on our vision to make marketing more effective for businesses and more relevant for consumers. Thank you to our wonderful clients, employees, investors and friends for all of the support and encouragement along the way.
