Today, we announced our latest round of funding of $110 million with our lead investor Accel and new investor Salesforce Ventures along with many others.
In addition to being incredibly grateful at reaching this milestone and proud of what our team has accomplished in such a short time, I’m energized by what lies ahead.
On any journey, it’s always helpful to take a step back (and a breath) to appreciate how far you’ve come and appreciate how far you still have left to go to achieve your vision.
When Julien and I started Algolia in 2012, it was clear that the world would only be more digitally immersed as more websites, apps and digital content were being produced at an increasing rate. Helping users search, discover and navigate through this digital world would be critical for the success of businesses of all sizes.
Our vision at Algolia from day 1 has been for every business to be able to deliver the best experience possible to its users — a search and discovery experience that is lightning fast, personalized, and highly relevant — one that helps people find what they want across this digital universe AND how they want via any type of device at home, at work, and on-the-go.
In pursuing this vision, our mission has been to enable every developer and product team to build consumer-grade search that is easy to implement and easy to tailor and tune to deliver engaging digital experiences to their users that maximize growth.
In just seven years, we’ve already come so far with an amazing team, a strong culture and unshaken conviction in what we are doing to deliver on our vision and mission.
Since 2012, Algolia’s platform has processed over 1 trillion search queries, and we are privileged to now have over 8,000 customers and are supporting 70 billion searches per month.
Our employee base now consists of 350 Algolians across 6 offices worldwide — and we are hiring!
And, just in the past several months, I’m humbled by some of the milestones, partnerships and accolades we’ve been able to achieve together including:
With the new funding, Algolia will be able to propel towards our shared vision and accelerate innovation efforts on behalf of millions of companies that must ensure users are quickly getting what they want through a delightful experience that boosts engagement, conversion and growth. As we look forward for the rest of this year and beyond, we will:
“For too long, organizations have had to choose between building resource-intensive search tools by themselves and using lower cost, but inflexible, set-it-and-forget-it search solutions. Algolia solves for both by removing the cost and complexity of building search while empowering businesses to create tailored experiences that engage and delight customers. Our rapid growth underscores both the market’s need to deliver amazing consumer experiences, and Algolia’s ability to help them achieve these experiences.”
Building a company that is “built to last” and transforms how businesses engage with their users is no small task and requires the right investors, customers, and team.
While the journey has already been exhilarating every step of the way, I’m energized by what lies ahead and can’t wait to take big leaps forward with all of you.
