Contentstack Raises $80M Series C
Contentstack, one of the founding members of the MACH Alliance, has raised an $80M Series C, with CEO Neha Sampat remarking that their platform, “empowers marketers and developers to deliver composable digital experiences at the speed of their imagination through automated headless CMS technology.”
Sampat told TechCrunch that composable architectures “ensure that enterprises can innovate swiftly, deploy new features rapidly, and remain agile in the face of digital disruption. Nobody gets ‘stuck’ with monolithic systems that don’t grow with the business or the world.”
Elsewhere, Agility CMS unveiled Plenum, and Payload joined the MACH landscape’s fundraising fiesta with a $4.7M Seed Round.
“Contentstack competes with headless CMS vendors, including Storyblok, which raised $47 million in May for its CMS aimed at nontechnical users, and Prismic, which recently raised $20 million to build out its fully managed CMS. (An interesting data point: VCs have invested over $118 million in CMS startups in the last year alone.) Strapi and Kontent are among the startup’s other rivals. But Sampat makes the case that Contentstack is the only CMS offering automation capabilities that don’t require code.”
