Weston, FLA, February 03, 2022 – Today, Digibee, the leading low-code integration platform, announced its $25 million dollar Series A round led by SoftBank Latin America Fund with additional participation from Kinea and G2D Investments.

“We are thrilled to see that the investment community believes in our mission to make our customers and our customers’ customers unstoppable,” said Rodrigo Bernardinelli, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at Digibee. “We are helping global enterprises on their digital journey, so they can grow and scale without economically prohibitive upfront costs while empowering their talent to focus on driving their business forward. We look forward to reaching the world’s most innovative companies in the US and globally.”
“We are very excited about the Digibee investment. The company tackles a cost line – integrations – that accounts for over 50% of software spend, enabling organizations to connect their systems to turn the digital transformation into reality”, says Rodrigo Baer, Managing Partner of early-stage investments at SoftBank Latin America Fund. “The company is building a world class salesforce to take that solution to market, which will turn their product into a really global player”.
