Sentry raises $40 million Series C led by Accel for its error-tracking software
Sentry, a startup that provides bug-monitoring software for app developers, announced today that it has raised a $40 million Series C led by returning investor Accel, with participation from New Enterprise Associates.
The funding brings the San Francisco-based company’s total raised to about $66.5 million. Its last round of funding, a $16 billion Series B, was announced in May 2018 and brought Sentry’s valuation to $100 million. The company did not divulge its new valuation for its Series C, but co-founder and CEO David Cramer (pictured above) told TechCrunch that it reflects Sentry’s growth from serving 2,000 organizations at the end of 2015 to 50,000 now. Its clients include companies like Airbnb, Dropbox, Microsoft, PayPal, Peloton, Pinterest, Square, Symantec and Uber.
In a press statement, Accel partner Daniel Levine said “Sentry’s leadership has proven year after year that it can identify emerging technology trends and, crucially, bring products to market that developers need and are willing to pay for. We’ve watched Sentry achieve, and sustain, its market leadership in error monitoring, and we are excited to support the team as they reinvent APM and shake up the market to give customers critical tools for the app-oriented decade ahead.”
