Apollo GraphQL has announced a $130 million Series D funding round led by New York-based global private equity and venture capital firm Insight Partners with participation from existing investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Matrix Partners, and Trinity Ventures. Additional investors Next47 and Hatim Shafique, Chief Customer Officer at DataBricks, also participated.
Apollo is pioneering the Graph as an essential new layer in the tech stack that serves as a unified representation of an organization’s services, data, and digital capabilities. The Graph empowers developers to deliver better experiences, faster; isolates service complexity; and serves as a single place for application development collaboration, without coupling.
Geoff Schmidt, cofounder and CEO of Apollo GraphQL added, “The Graph is a developer-driven movement to change how companies build software, and Apollo is leading in supporting application developers, the primary value creators in software. Every company will need a graph strategy to keep pace in the digital era the same way they need a cloud strategy. This round is a win for all application developers, who can expect increased support for our open source community, as well as our forward-looking customers.”
Apollo has assembled the largest community of GraphQL tech leaders and developers who are building the future of application development. Leaders in every vertical choose the Apollo Graph Platform, including forward-thinking organizations like Walmart, Paypal, Expedia, Wayfair, The New York Times, Zillow, and Audi.
“Apollo has brought the revolutionary technology of GraphQL to the enterprise through its commitment to the open source community and making the Graph a foundational pillar to the tech stack,” said David George, general partner at Andreessen Horowitz. “Apollo’s mission and growth serves as a force multiplier for developers everywhere to have a bigger impact and change the way companies build software. It’s a different way of thinking about how to build applications that developers are adopting at a rapid pace.”
