Our ecosystem is a critical part of our success and includes developers building on top of our products, Marketplace Partners, and our Solution Partners. This ecosystem is as important as ever as we focus more and more on our cloud-based solutions. We’re committed to doing our part to ensure a vibrant ecosystem, and now this includes putting our money where our mouth is with investments.
Developers at the start-up stage are an important audience for the venture program. We’ve been amazed at how our ecosystem has innovated on top of Atlassian’s products and we want to enable their success and growth.
Atlassian will invest in three types of companies that are critical to our ongoing success:
Early-stage (targeting seed rounds) startups building apps for our cloud products. We hope to include both existing ecosystem developers and new teams in this category, and are excited to give them an opportunity to grow.
Larger, more established product partners scaling their businesses. These investments will be made in partnership with institutional investors, and will generally target series A onwards.
Existing sales channel partners looking to step up their cloud services and create new products that support the future of teamwork.
