Ten years ago, BigCommerce was founded in Sydney, Australia and relocated to Austin in 2011 with the goal of being closer to its customers—and of gaining access to US venture capital funding. Since then, the company has grown into the world’s leading cloud ecommerce platform for established and rapidly-growing businesses, competing against SaaS-industry giants like Salesforce, Adobe, and Shopify.
Combining enterprise functionality, an open architecture and app ecosystem, and market-leading performance, BigCommerce enables businesses to grow online sales with 80% less cost, time and complexity than on-premise software. BigCommerce powers B2B and B2C ecommerce for more than 55,000 SMBs, 3,500+ mid-market businesses, 40 Fortune 500 companies and industry-leading brands, including SkullCandy, Assurant, Ben & Jerry’s, Paul Mitchell, Proctor & Gamble, General Electric, Sony, and Toyota.
