WunderGraph, a Miami, Florida-based next-generation BFF framework designed to optimize frontend, full-stack, and backend developer workflows through API composition, raises $3 million in seed funding.
The round was led by Silicon Valley-based investor Aspenwood Ventures, which will allow WunderGraph to grow its team and global user base, developing the future standard of how to build applications in an “API first” way.
“WunderGraph standardizes how to build a backend for frontend. We make it seamless for developers to integrate complex architectures with many (micro-)services and databases, authentication, file storage, etc. and connect it to frontend frameworks like NextJS, Svelte, Remix & Co.” said Jens Neuse, CEO & Co-Founder.
The company is taking the next step with the release of WunderGraph Cloud, a new platform to run the WunderGraph BFF framework as an infraless “Platform as a Service” (PaaS) solution.
WunderGraph Cloud is designed as a “one stop shop” solution to meet the growing needs of developers and organizations who are faced with the challenge of creating and maintaining multiple backends for frontends on a flexible and scalable architecture.
