Today we’re honored to announce that our portfolio company – the automated software testing startup Cypress.io – has closed a $9.3 million Series A funding round led by Bessemer Venture Partners. We’re excited to follow on in this series with Bessemer Venture Partners to help Cypress continue to innovate and ship new product.
Cypress offers a next generation automated testing framework built for the modern web. Its solution provides better, faster and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Founded in 2014 to take the pain out of front end software testing, Cypress is developer driven with users in 90 countries including developers at Slack, Netflix, SendGrid, GitHub, FanDuel, Lego, SaltStack and GoDaddy.
