Typedream, an Indonesia-based startup, is on a mission to help people build websites without the need for coding.
The company recently closed a seed funding round led by Y Combinator, making it one of the few Indonesian companies to raise money from the esteemed Silicon Valley investor.
- Founded in 2021, Typedream is a platform that lets people create websites without the need for any programming skills.
- The company raised an undisclosed amount of seed funding from Y Combinator, ex-Sequoia Capital partner Timothy Lee, Makerpad founder Ben Tossell, WordPress executive Aadil Mamujee, and Twitter founding engineer Blaine Cook.
- Funds will be used to improve the company's product to cater to a wider audience.
Why It Matters
- With the growth of the digital (and mobile) space especially in Indonesia, the market for simpler solutions to build websites (and sell online) is growing exponentially.
- Users currently pay US $15 / month to use Typedream's platform.
- Typedream currently only supports static websites such as landing pages and personal websites, but plans to support e-commerce capabilities in the future.
- Co-founder Kevin Nicholas Chandra shared that the company's minimum viable product (MVP) was launched with just three features, but people were already willing to pay for the service.
