Amsterdam, 07 Jan 2021
AxonIQ, founded in The Netherlands and leading provider of a software platform for Event- Driven Architectures (EDA), announced today that it raised a €6M Series A round, led by AXA Venture Partners (AVP) and their existing investor, Volta as co-investor. According to Jeroen Speekenbrink, CEO and co-founder, “We are proud to welcome AVP as an investor embracing our vision of providing the technology needed to build the custom software systems that our clients need in these challenging times.”
“We are very excited to work with the team to support the growth of AxonIQ. What they and their team have achieved so far is very impressive. We share their vision that event-driven architecture is the next big thing for companies, big or small, that migrate their IT architecture to microservices. This allows native auditability, which is critical for many industries. The quality of their tech stack is very impressive and we are very honored to join the AxonIQ journey. As for all our other portfolio companies, we’ll pour all our resources in Europe and in the US at their service to help them grow.” commented Francois Robinet, Managing Partner of AVP.
Sander Vonk, managing partner of Volta Ventures and early investor continues: “There are only a few companies out there who are able to grow at the rate AxonIQ is growing, with this Series A and AVP as an investor the team is set to continue on this amazing journey.”
CTO and co-founder of AxonIQ, Allard Buijze says: “This investment allows us to expand our engineering and commercial teams around the world. With the additional engineering capacity, we will be able to take big strides in realizing our vision for tooling to make the benefits of event-driven systems available to both large and small organizations.”
