Secures Michael Olson as US-based President
New Delhi (India), March 19: Linktree today announced $110 million USD funding led by Index Ventures and Coatue at a valuation of $1.3 billion USD.
The company’s fast-paced growth trajectory to 24 million users in the past year ensured follow-on from previous investors AirTree Ventures and Insight Partners, and new participation from Greenoaks Capital, renowned for investments in Coupang, Canva and Airwallex.
Linktree is the link-in-bio category creator that enables users to create a streamlined online identity to showcase, and commercialize, their profile. It is utilized by artists, and brands globally including TikTok, Selena Gomez, Noah Beck, Bella Poarch, Red Bull, Shawn Mendes, the Los Angeles Clippers, Comedy Central, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, and HBO. Linktree helped 1.7 million people drive 1.2 billion clicks to commerce-related websites in the last year alone.
Users now exist across 250 verticals worldwide. From 2020 to 2021, the platform’s influencer, small business, and music verticals have grown on average more than 300% each. Linktree will use this funding to focus on additional geographic expansion, revenue streams and further value for its creators and brands via new tools and partnerships.
With its expansion into Indian Territory, it has noticed immense growth and engagement from a broad range of industries. Some of the leading names from India include Byju’s, BMW India, Jio Saavn, Sugar Cosmetics, Forbes, Mumbai Indians and many more. “Linktree will connect creators and audiences, facilitate and maximize the huge potential to expand the digital economy in India,” said Country Manager Linktree, Sapna Patel.
“We have grown beyond the traditional ‘link-in-bio’ company, connecting users’ fragmented online presence and establishing our position as a new sub-sector of the tech industry. This funding will ensure we continue to innovate and develop tools that empower people to grow, curate, and monetize their digital universe, maintaining Linktree as the market leader,” said Alex Zaccaria, co-founder, and CEO, Linktree.
Linktree marks this milestone with the hire of their first President, Michael Olson. Michael has a long and distinguished career in the gaming and creator economy having held Executive Growth and Operational positions at Twitch, Pandora, Linked-In and Microsoft. Based in the US, he will drive market and category leadership for Linktree and their growing team.
“I’m honored to be joining Linktree at this milestone moment. Over the past few years, the creator economy has grown rapidly and Linktree has led the way through innovations in discovery, engagement, and monetization – there are so many commercial possibilities with an audience of this size,” said Mike Olson, President, Linktree.
