At Connect we are very proud to have been early believers in Typeform. We led Typeform’s Seed round in 2014 and fully participated in their following A and B rounds. While we are certainly thrilled to see David and Robert (co-founders), Kim (CEO) and the Typeform team reach this new milestone, we believe what makes Typeform special goes beyond this funding round.
In fact, Typeform’s success story is one of little fundraising and unparalleled capital efficiency. In a Venture industry that glorifies fundraising growth above business growth — the company that raises the most gets all the attention — Typeform breaks the mould. It crossed 70m ARR through burning only $20m in total, constantly outperforming the “Rule of 40”. That’s almost unheard of, how did they do it? What is the formula behind this ultra-efficient growth?
In a nutshell: an opinionated product combined with an opinionated product-led growth engine.
