Postman secures $7mn in Series A Funding from Nexus Venture Partners

Postman, the company providing the complete API toolchain for developers, today announced Series A round of funding of $7mn from Nexus Venture Partners.

“Every developer in the world will benefit from using Postman,” said Jishnu Bhattacharjee, Managing Director of Nexus Venture Partners and Postman board member. “Postman is at the very center of the industry of connected software and poised for huge growth.”

Since the introduction of the first Postman app in 2012, Postman has become the industry standard for Application Programming Interface (API) development, with more than three million active installations and a customer base that includes more than 1.5 million active monthly users at 30,000 companies.

This company growth mirrors the huge growth of the API industry: according to ProgrammableWeb, the number of public APIs has grown from just over 5,000 in January 2012 to a current count of nearly 16,000.

Postman provides free apps for Chrome, Mac and Windows, available for download on the Postman website. Postman’s paid product, Postman Cloud, is a subscription service that provides additional collaboration, testing and documentation tools for both small and large development teams.
