This was a flagship year for Circle and online communities at large. We thank you for your support. Join us in celebrating our most memorable milestones.

Introducing: the Community Home, a personalized activity feed for your members to stay on top of what matters to them.

In March, we made dozens of small but powerful product improvements β€” such as including richer embeds, automations, and API updates.

We ended the year on a high note by announcing our $25m Series A round at a $200m valuation, backed by the best in the business.

In 2021, we grew our team from
15 to 40 people across eight countries.
