In the latest development, Amsterdam-based interactive design prototyping startup Framer has secured €21 million ($24 million) in a series B round of funding. This investment round was led by Atomico, a European Venture Capital firm along with participation from Accel and AngelList.
Back in December last year, Framer raised nearly €6.8 million ($7.7 million) in a funding round led by Accel, AngelList, Foundation Capital and Designer Fund. This investment was used to ramp up the product development, invest in design education and training and hire talent. Framer claims that it will use the latest investment to build its platform further for product teams and designers.
The Dutch startup was founded in 2013 by Koen Bok and Jorn Dijk. Prior to this, the duo were product designers at Facebook. The startup is behind the interactive design platform Framer X. Framer X is a fully integrated design, prototyping and developer tool. This tool lets developers create app designs and prototypes. Notably, Uber built its taxi app using Framer. And, its other customers are Airbnb, Snap, Facebook, Google and Microsoft.
Following the recent round of funding, here are some notable aspects about Framer, the visual design tool startup.
