PostHog raises $12 million led by GV

PostHog, the open source product analytics company, announced $12 million in Series A funding — led by GV (formerly Google Ventures), with participation from Y Combinator’s Continuity Fund.
PostHog founder James HawkinsJason Warner (CTO of GitHub), has made an investment, joining Solomon Hykes (founder of Docker) and David Cramer (founder of Sentry) who participated in the company’s seed round.

Since February 2020, there have been 3,000 deployments of PostHog’s software, ranging from startups to some of the world’s largest institutions. PostHog was originally conceived during Y Combinator’s Winter 2020 batch.

Co-founders are James Hawkins (CEO) and Tim Glaser (CTO).

PostHog enables software teams to understand user behavior – auto-capturing events, performing product analytics and dashboarding, enabling video replays, and rolling out new features behind feature flags, all based on its single open source platform.

PostHog raised an initial $3 million seed round in March 2020, as COVID-19 caused many parts of the U.S. to go into lockdown. The company closed a $9 million Series A from GV and Y Combinator’s Continuity Fund in July.
