Vancouver, Canada, based startup Durable, offering AI-powered business tools tailored for small service providers, announced securing $18 million CAD ($14 million USD) in Series A funding, propelling its total funding to over $27 million CAD ($20 million USD). Led by Spark Capital and existing investors, this substantial investment positions Durable to further expand its suite of offerings.
Durable's AI website creator has facilitated the creation of over six million websites in just a year since its launch. Targeting small-scale entrepreneurs such as plumbers and personal trainers, Durable's platform fills a void in the market by simplifying website creation and other business processes.
Unlike traditional e-commerce platforms, Durable is tailored exclusively for small service suppliers, such as personal trainers and freelancers. The platform provides a seamless process, allowing users to craft a website within 30 seconds, offering essential features for free and additional subscription-based functionalities.
Beyond website creation, Durable aims to be a comprehensive platform supporting entrepreneurs with various tools essential for business management. From CRM software and invoicing tools to an AI-powered assistant, the startup enables entrepreneurs to streamline their operations effectively.
Clift envisions a future where starting a business is as simple as converting skills into a successful enterprise within minutes. The recent Series A funding will fuel the expansion of Durable's offerings, enhancing automation features and scaling its team for innovative product development.
With its rapid growth and ambitious vision, Durable continues to carve its niche as a catalyst for service-based entrepreneurs' success in the competitive digital landscape.
