We are pleased to share that on September 30, Stoplight received the Early-Stage Winner recognition from the Austin Chamber A-List 2021 awards. The Early-Stage category involved all angel-invested, seed-funded, or Series A funded organizations. Stoplight was up against other Austin-based finalists such as TaxTaker, Swivel, Mosiebat, and Spyderbat Inc.

“Austin is such a vibrant tech scene with so many great companies to even be considered is amazing. To have our mission and our core values recognized in this great city is a huge honor,” shares Stoplight CEO, Steve Rodda.

This is a record year of growth for Stoplight, and this is our sixth award recognition of 2021! In February, Stoplight secured another $11M round of follow-on Series A funding co-led by Austin-based Next Coast Ventures and Bill Wood Ventures. We have since doubled across the board in revenue, in customers, and employees in the past year, and are looking forward to more growth to come.
