We're very excited to announce our pre-seed funding round led by Peak

We're very excited to announce our pre-seed funding round led by early-stage VC Peak, accompanied by leading European business angels. The funding will be used to double down on our efforts to bring Widgetbook to market, with the aim of closing the gap between design and code.

We closed our pre-seed funding round in October this year. Lead investor is the European early-stage VC Peak who has deep expertise in SaaS and has invested in Trengo, Hygraph, Circula. The group of angel investors joining us this round consists of Emma Tracey, Jakob Rehermann, Jag Singh with Angel Invest, Johannis Hatt, Kajetan Uhlig, Paul Hofmann with Expedite Ventures, Philip Petersen and Tim Seithe.

We dedicate this great opportunity to the whole Flutter community. 💙

The goal of this funding round is to bring Widgetbook to market and serve Flutter teams around the globe. We are proud to be part of a vibrant open-source community. Together with you, and enabled by this funding, we want to create an infrastructure for the Flutter universe that allows developers and designers to create outstanding products.

Contributing to the open-source Flutter ecosystem in close collaboration with the community by improving and maintaining our open source package will thus be an integral part of the coming months. These goals converge in Widgetbook's mission to close the gap between design and code.

"Flutter has grown tremendously since its launch in 2017. The community is growing fast and more and more top brands develop on Flutter nowadays. Lucas, Jens and Julius are well-embedded in this community, which allows them to build tooling that will help Flutter devs get to market even faster. We're excited to back the founders and contribute to the continued growth of the Flutter community." - David Zwagemaker, Partner at Peak
