Back in 2012, we saw an opportunity to change the world by making API's available to the wide community of API developers and we started the Marketplace. Our Marketplace became wildly successful, with over 300,000 developers and 18,000 private and public APIs under management. This is when the vision became clear and the need became real.
We are the company behind Kong, the most widely adopted open-source API gateway. We have a world-class Enterprise platform and our mission is to facilitate a new revolution in software production by serving as the backbone of the distribution and consumption of data and services through APIs. With insights gained from the Marketplace, Mashape is building innovative tools for the HTTP layer, driven by a passionate community of developers from all over the world. Our investors are top-notch and include Index Ventures, CRV, Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Eric Schmidt (Google), and Stanford University.
