Sketch raises $20m in Series A funding from Benchmark

In case you missed the news last week, we are incredibly pleased to announce that we have raised $20 million in Series A funding from Benchmark! This marks our first capital raise since we started working on Sketch nearly 10 years ago and we’re really excited that it will allow us to focus on some awesome new features, starting with the launch of Sketch for Teams early this summer.

Then, later this year, we plan to fully render your documents, add developer handoff, and allow rich collaboration, all in the browser. 

Over one million paying customers—from freelancers to some of the world’s largest companies—are now using Sketch to transform their ideas into products.

We’re so excited about what lies ahead and we’re really grateful to everyone who has joined us on this journey so far. Find out more over on the Sketch blog.
