Kong Raises $43 Million

Hello everyone,

We’d like to share some exciting news with you today! Kong has raised $43 million in Series C financing. Our mission here at Kong is to build the nervous system for the cloud by intelligently brokering information across all types of services.

This new funding grants us the support to continue this growth and deliver the industry’s first Service Control Platform. The Kong Service Control Platform is designed to seamlessly connect, govern and run APIs and microservices at scale, across multi-cloud, hybrid and on-prem workloads. With this round, we are investing in product innovation, international expansion, in our Kong open source community, and in building out our team to support demand for Kong technology.

This is a critical step in our ability to execute on our vision of making data available anytime, anywhere. We are incredibly thankful to you: our great open source community, customers, and partners for your support–we could not accomplish this without you.
