Letter from the CEO: Mendix Receives $13 Million Investment


on October 31, 2011

Dear friends,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I write this note to you, our customers, partners, user community and friends. Mendix has signed a $13 million investment round led by Prime Ventures. See here for the press release. We are honored to bring forth a new era for Mendix as we continue to bring innovation and productivity to organizations all over the world.

When we started Mendix as ambitious university students, we set out with a mission to revolutionize the relationship between business & IT. We imagined a world where business apps are delivered in days (not months) and where processes can be changed at the speed of business. We envisioned building a company and a team that would attract, develop and retain the brightest minds in the industry. And we could only dream of opening offices on three continents with partners and customers spreading our message around the globe. Today this is our reality.

Our product has developed significantly over the years, from a high-productivity development tool to a complete agile business platform with a fast-growing user community. Nevertheless our mission to increase the speed and ease of business change is as strong and relevant as ever. You can continue to expect us to keep pushing this frontier.

We thank you for your ongoing support.

Derek Roos
CEO, Co-Founder
