Today’s news: I’m thrilled to announce we raised a $25 million Series B led by Kleiner Perkins’ newest partner, Mamoon Hamid. We’re looking forward to working with Mamoon (and excited to be his first investment at KPCB). He’s known for making prescient early bets on SaaS companies like Slack, Box and Intercom, in part due to his data-driven investment thesis and go-to-market expertise. Our existing investors — Danny Rimer at Index, John Lilly at Greylock and LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner — joined the round as well (❤).
Five years ago, we started Figma with the simple belief our tools should empower us not limit us. We believed that creation should be accessible and collaborative rather than exclusionary and siloed. Adopting a new way of working is a journey, one that can get messy and takes time; we’re thankful to everyone (users, employees, investors) who supported our vision early.
