Every week we highlight new funding successes from companies bringing about change in their industries.  We amplify the voice of companies delivering on tech innovation whilst also utilizing remote work, or being clear on the importance of D&I to their brand. All ingredients that talent.ai focus on when selecting the best startup funding of the last 7 days. 

We see these journeys as an inspiration, offering insights to other founders, startups and innovators looking to evolve their stories into something extraordinary.  We know the hard work behind these accomplishments and always seek to recognise and applaud those involved from leadership, founders, and their entire teams. 

Congratulations to all the founders and teams!

Gitpod provides ready-to-code collaborative developer environments in an open-source platform, making automation solutions more accessible for tech teams. 

German founded Gitpod is the standout leader in Cloud Development Environments (CDE), and with many big-name companies like Spotify adapting to CDE that’s a great place to be for a company on the scaleup phase. 

Proof of that is its latest investment round of $25 Million coming from GitHub founder Tom Preston-Werner, and the participation from previous investor General Catalyst. Talent.ai and the tech world are expecting an impressive growth journey for Gitpod in the future!
