– USA, CA – Duda, a leading web design platform for digital agencies and SaaS platforms, today announced it has raised a $25 million growth equity round from Susquehanna Growth Equity. This round brings the total amount raised to date to $50 million. The financing will be used to accelerate sales and marketing efforts and continue growing the R&D team based in Israel.
Noa Wolfson, Investor at Susquehanna Growth Equity, has joined the company’s Board of Directors in conjunction with the investment alongside existing investors Oren Zeev and Pitango Venture Capital.
“While the Susquehanna team and I were initially impressed with the product, it wasn’t until we started speaking with customers that we realized just how powerful the platform is for the thousands of web professionals it serves. Time and again, customers told us that Duda catalyzed the growth of their agencies,” said Noa Wolfson, Investor at SGE. “The ability to have all site-building and client management needs on a centralized, and more importantly, secure, platform saves web professionals time and money.”
Duda has developed highly-tailored tools that are integrated into its website building platform to enable professional website designers and digital agencies to increase efficiency and more effectively collaborate both internally and with their customers.
