Rockstart Alumni Wercker Raise $2.4 Million In Funding

Rockstart Accelerator alumni Wercker, who have created the cloud-based continuous delivery platform used by developers worldwide, officially announced that they have raised $2.4 Million in funding led by Notion Capital with participation from Tola Capital this morning. Notion Capital is an entrepreneur-backed venture capital firm specializing in high potential businesses in the Cloud delivered and Software-as-a-Service markets. Tola Capital is a private equity firm focused on investing in the wave of enterprise software companies enabled by the cloud platforms. Existing investors Vitulum Ventures, Shamrock Ventures and Rockstart Accelerator also invested in the round.

Wercker provides a cloud-based deployment platform to help developers to reduce risk and eliminate waste by testing and deploying their code often. It is hosted in the Cloud, so there is no need for users to download any software or buy hardware in order to set up a continuous delivery pipeline. Created on the principle that developers want to focus on building their applications, not on operations and servers, Wercker enables a new level of developer efficiency.

The startup participated in Rockstart Accelerator Web/Mobile in 2012 and has raised $3.4 Million in 2 Rounds from 7 Investors since then. The new funding will be used for accelerated international growth and continued development of the platform. Wercker currently has offices in Amsterdam and San Francisco.
