With 2021 coming to a close, it's our favorite time of year! As we begin planning Thunkable’s 2022...
Announcing Thunkable’s Series B Funding
More than six years ago, Thunkable was launched with the mission of empowering creators to get hands-on with digital innovation. Since that time, we have grown our capabilities, our community, and our team. Now, there are more than 3 million users from 184 different countries using Thunkable to get hands-on with no code mobile app development.
And today we are thrilled to announce that Thunkable has closed our Series B funding round of $30 million, led by Owl Ventures, with continued support from Lightspeed Venture Partners, NEA, PJC, Sky9 Capital, and many more.
Funding the Future of No Code Mobile App Development
Thunkable has a simple, yet ambitious goal – to make mobile app development accessible to everyone, everywhere. Because we know that good ideas are everywhere and coding skillsets or funding shouldn’t be required to create solutions for unaddressed problems. With this latest round of funding, we are going to continue to aggressively pursue this mission and focus on three key areas:
Growing the Thunkable Team
We will be growing our team to help meet the expectations we have set for ourselves. We are hiring across all teams in order to continue to deliver the most powerful and comprehensive no code app development platform.
If you are interested in joining us, apply for one of our open positions.
Expanding No Code App Creation Capabilities
“We recognize that we have only scratched the surface on what our team can accomplish. As we have seen, the future is going to be built by the Creators that are empowered and equipped to make a difference,” said Arun Saigal, Thunkable CEO and Cofounder, and WeiHua Li, Thunkable CTO and Cofounder. “At Thunkable, we are proud to play a part in that, by equipping the world with the most powerful, comprehensive no code development platform for native mobile apps.”
To further accomplish Thunkable’s goals emphasized by our cofounders, our growing team’s focus will always remain product-first. We are going to unlock more capabilities and expand the functionality of our platform. We have some exciting product developments that we’ll be sharing with you throughout the year.
No Code App Creation Help
Finally, we are looking towards growing and empowering our global Community. We have two exciting initiatives lined up and many more to come.
The first is the launch of Thunkable Academy. We are building an end-to-end training and certification program to make learning no code mobile app development on the Thunkable platform fast and fun. We are welcoming an initial group of trial users to go through the program before we open things up to everyone later this summer. If you’re interested in joining the Thunkable Academy program, please sign up here.
Thunkable Freelancer Network
We are introducing the Thunkable Freelancer Network. Through our Community and Creator Success engagement, we see the thousands of power-users from all around the world and we want to pair your Thunkable skillset with companies and organizations in need of app development assistance. We will officially launch the network later this summer, but if you’re interested in putting your app development expertise to work, please sign up here.
We are excited to introduce these programs and we have a lot more coming throughout the year.
Thunkable has been pioneering the no code app creation and mobile app development fields for the better part of a decade. And we will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in these spaces. We are so proud of our team, our group of innovative investors, and you. Thank you for joining us as we continue to make app development accessible to the world. We know the future will be built by you, the creators. And we are here to give everyone the ability to create custom, native mobile apps.
Thank you for all of your continued support and we can’t wait to see what you’ll build next!
