Algolia was founded in 2012 by Nicolas Dessaigne and Julien Lemoine. While the company has not spoken about publicly an IPO, rapid growth has led commentators to wonder if we may see one in the future. These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.
Algolia offers "search as a service," streamlining the process of searching content within a website. According to TechCrunch, "the company now has over 10,000 customers, including some big names, such as Slack, Stripe, Medium, Zendesk and Lacoste," handling "over 1.5 trillion search queries per year." They go on to say, "while the company doesn't share revenue numbers directly, Algolia says that its annual recurring revenue has increased by 180% year over year." In July 2021 a press release, the company states that their latest round of funding brought in $150 million, bringing their total funding to $315 million from investors including Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC, STEADFAST Capital Ventures, Glynn Capital, and Twilio. This latest round of funding increased Algolia's post-money valuation to $2.25 billion.
