Happy birthday to us! Today, we celebrate Jimdo’s ninth birthday—and what a year it’s been. We’ve done a lot of growing up since our eighth birthday, and many exciting things have happened. It’s time to break out the party poppers and cupcakes with sprinkles, and celebrate an amazing nine years!
We Got Funding
We closed a €25 million ($28 million) minority investment round from Spectrum Equity. You can now expect Jimdo to become a stronger, faster, and more flexible company than ever before!
We Got a Makeover
While our core belief remains the same (with fun, anyone can build something great), we wanted to bring our story to life by creating a beautiful new logo. And, my what a beauty! We’re thrilled with our new logo, and hope you’re as happy with our new look as we are.
We Added New Features
We also released lots of wonderful new features and templates to make your websites even better. This year, our designers in Hamburg worked hard to add even more striking template choices to the collection. We also released three new Photo Gallery views, so you can show off your portfolios and photographs. And now you can quickly and easily apply a brand identity to your entire website with our updated Style Editor.
We’re always impressed and happy to see how you, our customers, use these new tools to improve your websites. But don’t take our word for it. Just take a look at how Jimdo users spruced up their sites during our Reinvention Month Contest (special shout-out to the winning site, Pack 23, Burlington, CT!).
We Won Big
We were honored to win the Deutscher Gründerpreis (German Founders Award) as a recognition of our innovative business model, sustainable growth, and our fantastic company culture.
