Polycam Raises $18M to Democratize 3D Creation
We started Polycam three years ago with the belief that 3D is the next major creative medium. Today we’re thrilled to announce an $18M Series A led by Harley and Matt Miller at Left Lane Capital and Nico Wittenborn at Adjacent. They are experts in the mobile creator tools space and share our conviction about the future of the 3D medium. I’m grateful they have bet on our team and look forward to working with them to take Polycam to the next level. I’m also excited to share that Adobe Ventures is participating in the round along with a stellar group of angel investors including Chad Hurley (co-founder of YouTube), Shaun Maguire (of Sequoia Capital), Julien Chaumond (co-founder of Hugging Face), and Barry McCardel (co-founder of Hex).
With the recent launch of the Vision Pro, the belief in 3D as the next medium may now seem obvious, yet the existing tools for creating digital 3D content and experiences are too slow and difficult to make 3D mainstream. Our mission is to democratize 3D creation by building new tools from the ground up that are AI-first, cloud-first, and collaboration-first, borrowing on lessons learned from the modernization of video creation tools over the last 20 years. As with 2D, we expect that most 3D content will start with capture and then be edited and post-processed to reach its final form, and we are excited to further build out a creation stack that supports these workflows in 3D.
Bringing a new medium to the masses wouldn’t be possible (or enjoyable) without an amazing team, an enthusiastic base of customers, and steadfast investors and we’re very thankful for everyone who has supported us early on. If you are excited about our vision, please consider joining us – we are hiring!
