Introducing the Grafana Accelerator Program, one of the investments we're making in the community after raising $50 million

August 17, 2020 1 min

This morning, we announced that we raised $50 million in Series B funding.

This additional funding, following our $24 million round last October, will enable us to dramatically accelerate research and development at Grafana Labs. We plan to hire more engineers and focus on product innovation. And importantly, it will help us continue to nurture and grow our community of millions of developers around the world.

To that end, I’m excited to announce the launch of the Grafana Accelerator Program (GAP) to support innovation in the wider Grafana ecosystem. If you’re an early-stage company or side project using Grafana for novel use cases such as industrial IoT, business intelligence, and beyond, sign up to be notified when the application process starts. We will be offering Grafana Cloud accounts, Grafana Enterprise subscriptions, cash grants and equity financing, and access to the core Grafana Labs developers to organizations that are accepted into the program.

We feel lucky to be at the center of such a vibrant community, and we can’t wait to see more of the use cases that you’re coming up with.
