Firebase Closes $1.4 Million in Seed Funding
We’re excited to announce that Firebase has raised additional seed funding, bringing our total investment to date to $1.4 Million. The new investment comes from a number of prestigious firms and angels, including:
- Flybridge Capital Partners
- Greylock Partners
- Founder Collective
- Data Collective
- Amr Awadallah
- Brian Shire
- Lucas Nealan
- Adam Nash
- Michael Tanne
- Justin Yoshimura
- Guy Gamzu
- Tony Chen
The institutional investors participating in the round are experts in the infrastructure space and have funded leading companies such as 10gen, Engine Yard, Cloudflare, Typesafe, and Chartbeat.
Our Angel investors will be instrumental as well in helping us grow the company. Brian Shire and Lucas Nealan helped scale Facebook in its early days, Adam Nash is an expert in building platforms from his time at LinkedIn, and Amr Awadallah, the Cofounder and CTO of Cloudera, brings extensive experience solving big data challenges.
The new money allows us to grow our engineering team so we can more quickly solve the security, data integrity, and reliability challenges we face as we build the first enterprise-grade, real-time backend. We’ll also be working to scale our infrastructure and provide better support for server-side development. We’re hiring; email email@example.com if you’re interested.
To date we have been funded by Y Combinator, SV Angel, Start Fund, Ken Thom, and Inspovation Ventures.
