Jahia, the leading open source User Experience Platform (UXP), just announced that they’ve raised €20 million with equity investor Invus, a leading firm investing in some of the most disruptive high growth companies. The transaction was one of the largest first rounds of external financing for a company in the UXP sector.

Previously bootstrapped, Jahia has grown impressively over the last several years, adeptly acquiring numerous top-notch clients including the European Parliament, Samsung, Sodexo, Europcar, Abercrombie & Fitch, and HomeAway.

They have big plans for their new funding, including enhancing their visibility via a bigger target marketing push, accelerating their distribution strategy and partnerships, expanding their geographic footprint, particularly in North American and across Europe, and ramping-up their sales capability and technical expertise by doubling their team by end 2015.

In speaking about their big fundraising round, Jahia CEO and President Elie Auvray adds:

“We are incredibly proud and honored to see Invus’ strong commitment and acknowledgement of our vision, our customers successes and our ambitions. This funding will allow us to reach our objective: to make our UXP solution the obvious choice for the Digital challenges of the modern Enterprise.”
