Announcing Kittl’s $36 million Series B

Announcing Kittl’s $36 million Series B

Just nine months after raising $11m in Series A funding, we’re pumped to announce our $36m Series B funding round, led by IVP. Raising twice in the space of 9 months is no easy task, especially in this climate, but thanks to our rapid growth, we’re now in a position to double down on our mission to make design more accessible. 

In the last 12 months, we’ve grown our community of designers to over 1 million globally, achieved cash flow positive results, and we’re now in the process of making Kittl available to entire teams, not just individuals.

"We’re reimagining the way graphic designers create by simplifying the outdated norms of design creation - end-to-end, from ideation to production. And we're doing it on a global scale.  While the US remains our primary market, this new capital enhances our capability to expand into new territories, especially in Asia, Europe, and South America,” Nicolas Heyman, Kittl’s CEO and Co-founder explained.

We have big plans for the year ahead, and you can read up on some of them below: 

AI comes to Kittl 

Kittl has pioneered the first text-to-graphic generative AI model in graphic design, simplifying complex workflows into intuitive processes and recently began rolling out Kittl AI ImageGen V2, which supports specific prompts and various aspect ratios, generating beautifully detailed images. Our journey of innovation is ongoing, with plans to build intuitive vector and image editing features and an AI design copilot.

Hiring more A Players

We’ve already attracted an A player team of over 60 people, from leading brands like Revolut, Meta and Canva, and we’ll be hiring a further 50 people this year. We’re on the hunt for engineers, product managers, sales leaders and more. Check out our openings here.
