Grafbase, the data platform for developers, announced that it has raised USD 7.3M in total funding. The company’s fresh $5M seed round was led by Next47, a global venture capital firm investing in category-defining B2B companies.
The funding round also saw participation from Alven, Uncorrelated Ventures, and a group of angel investors including Vercel CEO Guillermo Rauch, Datadog CEO Olivier Pomel, GitHub ex-CEO Nat Friedman, Netlify CEO Mathias Biilmann Christensen, and Cockroach Labs CEO Spencer Kimball.
Grafbase is a remote-first company distributed across Europe and the US and is available for developers. With the fresh funding will accelerate its product development and double the size of the team.
Before founding Grafbase, Swedish-born Fredrik Björk (who started coding at the age of 9) was the CTO at The RealReal and the founder and CTO of Avatars United, a social network for the metaverse that was acquired by Linden Lab in 2010.
