We’re going to be addressing the needs of our users by adding support for their favourite data systems much faster,” said Tanmai Gopal, CEO of Hasura, in a statement.

What Greenoaks Capital has to say

Neil Shah, the partner at Greenoaks Capital, said, “There are few better signs of a powerful developer experience than enthusiastic adoption. And on this count, there aren’t many companies like Hasura.”

He also added, “Since the launch of their GraphQL engine in 2018, Hasura has witnessed explosive uptake across countless organizations, from grassroots open-source projects to some of the largest companies in the world. The common thread is substantial improvements in developer productivity and decreased time to market for mission-critical applications.”
