Delightful products should keep their users in control. Privy builds authentication, authorization and data control tooling so developers can deliver amazing products that keep users safe.
Our team comes from web3 and self-driving to reshape data infrastructure on the web. We recognize the trade-offs between convenience and decentralization at play online. Our job is to stake out nuanced positions and build opinionated software so developers have a way forward.
Privy is a distributed company with hubs in New York City and the Bay Area. We have been working remotely for years and value both the flexibility and effectiveness of remote work, as well as the small things you only get from being around your teammates.
You shouldn't have to choose between protecting your users and building great products.
Today, we're excited to announce the latest milestone for Privy: we've raised $8.3M in seed funding led by Sequoia Capital and BlueYard Capital. This funding will help us grow our team, scale our APIs and build partnerships to help developers in the space build better, more private products for their users.
Too much of web3 today is built around visions for how protocols can shape the space over decades, rather than focused on helping developers ship safer, more delightful products today.
