An industry-leading headless CMS, Kontent.ai headquartered in the Czech Republic, has nabbed $40 million in funding from Expedition Growth Capital (EGC).

Deploys AI into CMS

With this funding, the startup aims to become its own standalone company for the first time and looks to enhance its product by bringing the power of AI into its content management systems (CMS). It will enable Kontent.ai to expand its global footprint in marketing and sales as well as bring the choice and governance of composable AI to its modular content platform.

Kontent.ai’s CEO Bart Omlo said: “With this investment into Kontent.ai, now as its own company, we’re excited to expand our global footprint helping enterprise teams scale their content operations, make the most of machine learning and AI, and deliver exceptional digital experiences. With Kontent.ai’s modular content platform, we push the boundaries of content management to give our customers the competitive edge.”

Oliver Thomas at Expedition Growth Capital said: “We’ve noted the impressive number of global enterprises that are choosing Kontent.ai for their headless CMS strategy and see huge potential in financing its future as an independent company. By appealing to both content creators and developers, Bart and the team are helping global companies to efficiently scale digital experience across an ever-evolving mix of channels. With AI unlocking even more powerful workflow automation for its customers, we’re excited to see the rewards of product leadership in this exciting category.”

What does Kontent.ai do?

Founded by Petr Palas in 2015 in Brno, Czech Republic, Kontent.ai‘s modular content platform helps organisations unify, organise and manage all business content in a cloud-based repository. Its intuitive authoring experience allows for simultaneous, collaborative work at every phase of the content lifecycle.

Using Kontent.ai, content teams can easily plan, create, and review content with streamlined workflows and approvals. The modular content platform allows editors to focus on the content they want to produce, without being held up by structural design choices on how and where that content will be displayed.

Using Kontent.ai’s content platform, multinational companies are able to ensure consistent content strategies across languages and regions with no need to jump in and out of other apps to collaborate and plan in real-time, saving time and money.

As more and more businesses look to transform the way they deliver content, Kontent.ai is experiencing high levels of growth. In 2021, global giants such as Algolia, Anaplan, SonarSource, the University of Oxford, Unum Insurance, and Zurich Insurance made Kontent.ai their modular content platform of choice.

D’Arcy Heath, Head of Digital Marketing and Automation at Unum said: “To be truly omnichannel, we needed a content platform that could support all our initiatives in one place – to be able to create once and publish everywhere. Kontent.ai gives us that flexibility and adaptability. Working with Kontent.ai has brought marketing and IT closer together too. It enables us to leverage combined skills to deliver a scalable, omnichannel SaaS solution, with the customer at its heart.”

as it becomes a standalone enterprise for the first time and looks to enhance its product by bringing the power of AI into its content management systems (CMS). Powering over 2,000 projects including websites, apps and headless commerce experiences, Kontent.ai was originally started in 2015 as a business unit of 18-year old bootstrapped company Kentico. Today, Kontent.ai employs over 120 employees across five offices on four different continents. As a new independent company, it is ready to hire 100 employees in the next 12 months.
