Stellate, formerly known as GraphCDN, is bringing its expertise in GraphQL APIs to the masses with the help of a $25M Series A from Tiger Global and a $5M seed round led by boldstart ventures.

Stellate will use the augmentation to create the global data graph by connecting GraphQL APIs around the world to enable innovation, efficiency, and cost savings on a scale never seen before. This is particularly relevant given the current data explosion, which shows no signs of slowing down; in five years, you will have 2.5 times more data than today.

“The world is made of data,” said Max Stoiber, CEO and co-founder of Stellate. “Most of this data is linked to each other, but no one is making these connections. If we can enable companies to make their GraphQL APIs accessible to third-party developers and then connect them all, that will bring a ton of value to the world.

For example, you might want to determine if the customer who just submitted a ticket is a high-value customer by checking the corresponding subscription in Stripe’s data and if there are any high-value offers associated with the business. of this customer in Salesforce. For now, this would require hours of integration work. With the global data graph, this would be reduced to a single query.

This is all made possible by GraphQL, an API technology invented at Meta that turns APIs from a list of endpoints into graphs. Only once the world APIs are graphs can you actually wire them together in the global data graph.

“GraphQL’s flexibility is great for developers, but makes security and schema evolution more difficult, especially once third parties use your API,” said Tim Suchanek, co-founder and CTO of Stellate. “That’s why our first step to accessing the global data graph is to create tools for companies to make their GraphQL APIs accessible to third-party developers.”

Suchanek explained that running a GraphQL API in production is neither straightforward nor straightforward. Outside the walls of MANGA, most companies lack the engineering capability to invest in addressing core technology issues such as abuse protection and performance, leading to online rants like these. Stellate co-founders Max Stoiber and Tim Suchanek believe that everyone deserves access to the best tools and analytics for this incredibly powerful API.

“As a technical founder myself with deep experience in developer tools, I knew the moment I met Max and Tim that they were solving a real problem for developers,” said Ellen Chisa, Partner at boldstart ventures. “It’s an honor to partner with amazing founders early on in their journey and support them through IPO.”

Founders Max Stoiber, who created Stylized Components and Spectrum (acquired by GitHub), and Tim Suchanek, author of the GraphQL Playground and lead engineer at Prisma, will focus their expertise on developer tools to make open APIs safe and secure. the first step towards building a global data graph.

“We seek to invest in game-changing companies, and we expect Stellate to be one of our winners,” said John Curtius, partner at Tiger Global Management. “We look forward to enabling Stellate to realize its vision of unlocking global data.”
