On Pipefy’s $45M Series B, and what it means for you

Pipefy

I founded Pipefy 4 years ago for one simple reason: I was frustrated. I was in charge of operations at a previous company and I was frustrated. Processes were hard to organize and automate. I could not get the visibility I needed. I couldn’t easily apply Lean Management principles to what I was doing. The IT department didn’t have the bandwidth to address my needs. While I was responsible for my area, I didn’t feel quite in control.

I created Pipefy to help me address some of those problems I was facing. I knew if I had those problems, other managers were struggling with the same issues.

Fast-forward four years and we’ve closed our Series B. We raised $45M from our new investors Insight Partners, who led the round, as well as from our existing investors OpenView, Trinity Ventures, OneVC, Redpoint and Valor Capital. I’m excited to welcome Insight to the extended Pipefy family and look forward to working with them as we continue growing the company.

Most importantly – what does this new round mean for our customers? It means we’ll be able to deliver faster on our vision to help do-ers take control of the processes they’re responsible for, get better visibility and be able to improve using principles of Lean Management – without necessarily having to have a six sigma black belt degree.

Do-ers? That’s you: The people in charge of getting work done at your company. You want a better way to manage your process. You want more visibility and above all, you want to be in control of your process and of your own results.

At Pipefy, we’ve been working hard at giving you just that. We’re very proud of the product we’ve created so far, but we are also still far from the vision I had when I started this company. 

I’m very excited about what this new round is going to help us achieve, and I can’t wait to welcome new do-ers and new companies as we continue to deliver on our vision.

We’re just getting started. I invite you to join us in this journey.
