NEW YORK, August 11, 2022 — Kleiner Perkins, Greenoaks, Spark, and Meritech led a UD 37 million funding round for Superblocks, a programmable platform that allows developers to quickly create unique internal tools.
Superblocks has experienced fantastic growth as developers have produced thousands of applications, processes, and scheduled jobs on the platform in recent months, despite market constraints limiting development resources within businesses.
According to Brad Menezes, co-founder, and CEO of Superblocks:
“Software is consuming every business process, and custom internal software has become extremely expensive to produce, difficult to manage, and complex to secure. We developed Superblocks to free developers from spending hundreds of hours on labor-intensive internal tooling primitives, allowing them to concentrate solely on the user experience and business logic specific to their business”.
With programmable building blocks from Superblocks, developers can quickly and affordably design mission-critical unique internal apps, workflows, and scheduled jobs. With the help of the business, hundreds of quick-thinking engineering firms like Motive, Payhawk, Clearco, Papaya Global, and Alchemy could condense months’ worth of internal development roadmap into just a few weeks. These businesses automate operations most frequently for their customer service and operational teams.
Hemant Banavar, head of financial products at Motive, stated that:
“Superblocks enabled us to launch our gasoline credit card at record speed while saving our engineering team hundreds of hours. Hundreds of customer service agents use Superblocks’ internal apps daily as the core of our credit underwriting, onboarding, and card management operations, allowing us to keep up with demand as it grows.”
The funding round was led by Kleiner Perkins, Greenoaks, Spark, and Meritech, with participation from Airtable Co-Founders Howie Liu and Andrew Ofstad, Twilio Co-Founder & CEO Jeff Lawson, Okta Founder & COO Frederic Kerrest, Firebase Co-Founder James Tamplin, Workday Co-Founder & CEO Aneel Bhusri, Instacart Co-Founders Apoorva Mehta and Max Mullen, AngelList CEO Avlok Kohli, Fivetran Co-Founder & COO Taylor Brown, Box Co-Founder & CEO Aaron Levie, Yelp Co-Founder & CEO Jeremy Stoppeman, Notion COO Akshay Kothari, Starburst CRO Javier Molina, Brex CRO Sam Blond, DocuSign Founder Tom Gonser, Confluent Co-Founder.
Superblocks is a customizable platform that allows programmers to create unique internal tools quickly while saving countless hours. Engineering teams from hundreds of companies have used Superblocks to reduce months of internal software roadmaps to just a few weeks. The Superblocks company is based in New York.
According to Mamoon Hamid, the partner at Kleiner Perkins:
“Internal, custom software is at the core of every business, but how it has been produced, managed, and guarded in the past isn’t sustainable.” “By allowing developers to produce in weeks instead of months, Superblocks achieves efficiency. We are encouraged about a significant prospect for Superblocks since it lowers the cost of bespoke internal software for the developer, much like how AWS reduced the infrastructure cost.”
