raises £2m seed round from Fuel Ventures, the startup behind a headless, multi-platform website builder today announced its first institutional fund raising round led by leading VC firm Fuel Ventures alongside a new on-premise website builder solution, Brizy Local.

What is Brizy?

Brizy is a leading headless SaaS website builder platform focusing on web professionals, agencies, and hosting providers. Platform agnostic, more than 400,000 projects have been built on Brizy to date. Brizy’s user base hails our intuitive UI for building beautiful websites, landing pages, pop-ups, and web-stories with ease. Thousands of resellers have discovered the power of Brizy’s whitelabel builder solution which is available for Wordpress, as a Cloud Solution, and as a Local Editor.

How does it work?

Businesses of all sizes now have access to a lightweight website building solution called Brizy Local. Brizy Local runs on the infrastructure of the client and is a tiny file that allows service providers to provision a website builder to their end users in any existing environment. In contrast to hosted/ cloud-type builders such as Brizy Cloud or Wix, or plugin-based website builders such as Brizy Wordpress or Elementor, Brizy Local is a tiny CMS that runs on the host’s server directly. That has a number of advantages such as extreme speed to publish projects as well as maintaining compliance such as GDPR of providers required to do so.

Furthermore, Brizy announced today that it raised a seed investment round led by Fuel Ventures, one of the UK’s most active VCs in the technology sector. “We have aggressive plans for growth over the next 18 months and are very proud to have Fuel on board as a partner now”, says Dimi Baitancuc, CEO of Brizy. “While we have been profitable since starting out in 2018, we are excited to accelerate our growth. As a product-first company, we will expand our team of developers, support staff and we will also bolster our marketing and sales team with the investment by Fuel. Lastly, we have started working on a 4th product line which we look to reveal in mid 2023”.

Mark Pearson on Brizy

“We receive several hundred investment proposals each month but only invest into 10-15 per year”, says Mark Pearson, Founder & Managing Partner at Fuel Ventures. “Deciding to invest into Brizy was easy. They have a world-class product, have a proven track record and business model, a strong team of founders and an exciting lineup of products in the pipeline. Even with the recent slowdown of VC activity we felt confident that Brizy will take the website builder market by storm!”.
