The round also saw the participation of existing investors Vertex Ventures US, Nexus Venture Partners, Strive VC and SAP.iO Fund, and new angel investors including John Thomspon, the current chairman of Microsoft, the startup said in a statement.
With the latest financing, Hasura’s total funding stands at $36.5 million.
Hasura said it will use the funds to accelerate its hiring and investment in its open-source and commercial product development to support its millions of users.
“Hasura provides a lovely bridge for re-platforming applications to cloud-native approaches, so we see this approach being embraced by enterprise developers as well as front-end developers more and more,” said Gaurav Gupta, partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners and Hasura board member.
Founded in 2017 by Tanmai Gopal and Rajoshi Ghosh, Hasura’s range of data access solutions helps organizations accelerate product delivery by instantly connecting data and services to applications with GraphQL APIs.
“We want our users to be able to access that data instantly with Hasura’s secure, scalable data access infrastructure so adding support for MySQL and SQL Server was our obvious next step. It opens up huge potential for all the developers who need to access the vast amounts of data that lives in MySQL and SQL Server today,” said Hasura co-founder and CEO Tanmai Gopal.
Hasura raised $9.9 million in a Series A funding round led by Vertex Ventures US this February. The round had also seen the participation of SAP.iO Fund, the early-stage venture arm of SAP, as well as existing investors Nexus Venture Partners and Strive VC.
Hasura raised $1.6 million in its seed round led by venture capital firms Nexus Venture Partners and GREE Ventures, which has since been renamed STRIVE, in April 2018.
