Amsterdam and San Francisco based cloud delivery platform Wercker announced today that it has raised $2.4 million in a relatively large angel round led by Notion Capital. Tola Capital and existing investors Vitulum Ventures, Shamrock Ventures and Rockstart Accelerator – except Greylock Partners – also invested in the round.
The funding will be used for the further development of the platform and international expansion.
Wercker, a Rockstart Accelerator 2012 alumnus, enables developers via its SaaS platform to test and deploy code often. It enables its clients as such to build applications fast, with ease and a minimal amount of waste.
“The new funding and expertise that Notion brings will help us expand and create new features to meet the growing demand”, said Micha Hernández van Leuffen, founder and CEO of Wercker. “Wercker’s uptake has been amazing and we’re excited to be building an integrated automation environment to give developers the tools they need to produce and deploy their code with confidence and ease.”
Chris Tottman, Partner at Notion Capital, says that he looks forward to supporting Wercker’s growth and ‘exciting’ future. Tottman: “As we only invest in cloud technology businesses we understand the constant demand for speed and efficiency put on development teams. Wercker not only accelerates deployment but also allows globally distributed developer teams to work together transparently and confidently.”
In the last two years Wercker has build an interesting track record and attracted high profile supporters such as former Flipboard CTO Arthur van Hoff. It participated in the Mozilla WebFWD program, won the Salesforce Innovation Challenge and the GigaOM Structure: Europe Launchpad competition, taking home both the People’s Choice and Judge’s awards.
