2013 was a great year for Path in pursuit of our vision of bringing people closer together by building a better place to connect, share, and discover. Here are some of our favorite highlights from the year.
We brought you Path Stickers from some of the world’s most beloved brands such as Peanuts, Adventure Time!, South Park, Breaking Bad, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, NFL Players, Inc., and Fruit Ninja.
We also brought you Stickers from some of our favorite artists such as Susan Kare, Hugh MacLeod, and held a global Sticker creation contest in partnership with Threadless which attracted over 230 submissions from users around the world.
We expanded the Path API and worked with the developer community to connect some of your favorite apps to Path including Wordpress, Over, PicFrame, Strava, and The Bible just to name a few. Many more integrations with your favorite apps are on the way for 2014.
We looked to the future of connecting and sharing and brought you exclusive integrations with Google Glass and the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Wearables continue to be a trend for 2014, and we are excited to deliver even more innovation here throughout the year.
Our community has grown to more than 23 million users all over the world who engage with Path more than 1.2 billion times per month.
Today we are happy to announce a new round of investment that will help us continue to build our vision. This will be our Series C and totals $25 million. This round includes contributions from Bakrie Global Group, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Index Ventures, Greylock Partners, Insight Venture Partners, Redpoint Ventures, and First Round Capital.
This investment enables us to continue to focus on the pursuit of our vision. The capital will be used to directly fuel the growth of our daily community, to continue to develop our revenue strategy, and to pursue breakthrough innovation. We will continue to focus our efforts on attracting a world class team inspired to build this vision together.
We’re deeply grateful for the support of everyone in our community, more so than we can say in words. We hope you had a wonderful holiday with family, and in pursuit of your favorite interests. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2014.
Happy New Year from Team Path!
