I am incredibly excited to share with you that Patreon has just closed a Series C funding round of $60 Million.
When I joined Patreon over two years ago, we had a modest team of about twenty, whose commitment to helping creators get paid often surpassed our speed at which we were building tools for you to run your creative businesses.
We are now a team of 80 and are on track to send over $150 Million to over 50,000 financially active creators this year alone. We are gaining such incredible momentum and are eager to double this number in 2018.
We still have so much more work to do in order to achieve our mission of funding the creative class, and our latest round of funding will help us get there. We’ll use the finances to scale our team and quickly build the tools that you need most.

I’m pretty sure that the “C” in Series C stands for “Creator” and I cannot wait to make you all proud.
