Community Labs has raised a $30M strategic round to build platforms and protocols that onboard the first million people into the Arweave ecosystem.
Before going deep, we want to thank the people that made this possible. This strategic round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, and we’re also pumped to be partnering with Arweave, Bain Capital Crypto, Blockchain Capital, Distributed Global, and Road Capital Management alongside others.
We’re Community Labs, an Arweave-native software development company and venture studio focused on accelerating developer tools, use cases, and adoption of decentralized permanent data storage. We’re here because we believe permanent data storage is one of the least known yet most impactful advancements to society. We will develop and support critical developer tooling and foundational ecosystem solutions that onboard the next 1,000 active Arweave developers and founders while exploring new ways of leveraging this technology to change the world.
We believe in great technology, but we know that the core of all products, protocols, and companies are people. The Arweave community is one of the most vibrant and collaborative in existence. Shout out to Dameon, Ros, and DMac!
If you are a founder with a vision to build on Arweave we’d love to talk with you. Community Labs is here to pair great people with great technology on the frontier of the permaweb.
We’re hiring across the board, from engineers to operators, so if you’d like to join us on this mission, hit us up on Twitter!
