BigCommerce is a cloud-based ecommerce platform that allows businesses to build, manage and grow a successful online store. The platform offers a customizable design builder, powerful marketing tools, payment solutions, and more.
BigCommerce was founded in 2009 by Eddie Machaalani and Mike Hanrahan as an open-source project. In 2011, the company acquired Commerce Bug, which helped it transition into an enterprise-level platform with an emphasis on ecommerce solutions for small businesses.
In 2013, BigCommerce announced its first round of funding from investors such as True Ventures and Bessemer Venture Partners. The company has since raised more than $55 million in venture capital funding from investors including T. Rowe Price Associates, Shea Ventures, and Salesforce Ventures.
