Elastic Path Raises $90 Million in 2022
Following 200% YoY Growth, Funding To Accelerate Elastic Path Leadership in Composable Commerce
December 07, 2022 07:00 AM Eastern Standard Time
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Elastic Path, the leader of the Composable Commerce Movement, is marking the end of 2022 with a total of $90 million in financing, 200% year-over-year growth in bookings, and 221 product releases. The $90 million includes $60 million announced in February, plus a recent addition of $30 million in growth funding led by Sageview Capital with participation from additional existing investors. This new capital will allow Elastic Path to accelerate its leadership in Composable Commerce.
Composable Commerce enables brands to curate a best-of-breed solution that provides the flexibility to fit their unique business requirements. With any multi-vendor approach, there’s an added complexity of integrating, managing, and troubleshooting disparate technologies, which can become prohibitive to brands. Elastic Path is dedicated to reducing the complexity and risk of a multi-vendor approach by providing unparalleled partnership, enabling all brands to leverage Composable Commerce. In 2022, this commitment was showcased by the company’s launch of EP Payments, a pre-integrated payments solution; the release of the D2C Starter Kit, a composable frontend framework, available as open-source code on the company’s Github; and the creation of an Integrations Hub, a central repository of pre-built low code integrations. These advancements reduce the potential risk of a composable approach and empower brands to realize the benefits of Composable Commerce.
Additional highlights from the past year include:
200%+ year-over-year growth in subscription bookings
Launched EP Product Experience Manager (PXM), reinvented product data & catalog management, and EP Payments, pre-integrated payments
221 new product releases focused on empowering brands to merchandise without limits and delivering differentiated commerce experiences with ease
Recognized as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic QuadrantTM for Digital Commerce
