Unqork, a no-code application platform for large enterprises, has closed $51 million in additional funding for its Series B round from existing investor Goldman Sachs, along with participation from new investors Aquiline Technology Growth and World Innovation Lab (WiL).
This latest round closes a larger $131 million Series B led by CapitalG, the growth equity investment fund of Alphabet. Unqork will use the infusion to boost the number of credentialed Unqork Creators this year, with plans to grow the company's sales, marketing, and engineering teams; as well as train and launch new partnerships with services firms and systems integrators. The company will also host live events, including No-code on Tour and Unqork Live, its first user conference, on May 6th in New York City.
Goldman Sachs led a $22 billion Series A investment round for Unqork last year.
"We can say firsthand that Unqork is changing the way the financial services industry thinks about enterprise technology and how it gets built," said Sarah Shenton, Vice President in the Merchant Banking Division at Goldman Sachs. "Time and time again we see the power of the Unqork platform turn skeptical IT leaders into true believers."
