Otta's take on Squarespace

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Chances are you have already landed on a website developed using Squarespace. Millions of small businesses, entrepreneurs, creatives, and professionals have used the company's suite of products manage their projects and businesses through websites, domains, e-commerce, marketing tools and scheduling.

Thanks to its ability to allow anybody to build a website without any coding knowledge, Squarespace has positioned itself as an industry leader, despite fierce competition from the likes of WordPress and Shopify, who are both larger businesses on paper.

Since its creation in a dorm room in 2003, Squarespace launched a direct-listing on the New York Stock Exchange in May 2021 with a valuation of $6.8 billion. Squarespace has expanded to offer a wide range of tools that go beyond simple website production and remains focused on the further development of new capabilities, all while maintaining its overall goal of simplicity.

Total funding - $378.8m
