Contentful provides the essential content infrastructure for digital products and experiences, making content accessible via APIs and editable in an intuitive web app.

The story so far

After developing a fondness for programming at an early age, Sascha Konietzke started a publishing platform in 2011 that evolved into Contentful.  Realizing that Legacy CMS couldn’t keep up with the demand for digital experiences, the Contentful team recognized the massive market shift that has forced digital leaders to reinvent how their companies build digital experiences.

Now leading the next-generation approach to content management — beyond web CMS and headless CMS — Contentful provides a modern, agile, omnichannel content platform.  28% of the Fortune 500 and thousands of leading global brands trust Contentful to be the content layer of their tech stack and use to deliver digital experiences at scale. 

The Contentful team includes more than 350 people from 70+ nations, with office hubs in Berlin and San Francisco, and a distributed team worldwide. 

OMERS Ventures invested in Contentful in 2018.
