The Comprehensive Squarespace Review: What You Need to Know in 2021

Squarespace started as a drag-and-drop hosting platform in 2004, January. It was founded by Anthony Casalena, a college student at the University of Maryland, who developed the platform originally for personal use. For a long time, he was the only employee of the company and he worked in his dorm room, up until 2007 when Squarespace hit $1 million in annual revenue.

Then, Casalena moved to New York and by the year 2010, the company had 30 employees.

Squarespace experienced explosive growth, which was noticed by venture capitalists, who gave more than $38 million in the company’s first round of funding.

In 2019, Squarespace acquired Acuity Scheduling and Unfold, a few months later.

Earlier this year, Squarespace received $300 million in funding from outside investors and existing shareholders, and in May, the company went public on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), with a valuation of $6.6 billion.

They have over 3.5 million active subscribers and Squarespace is considered a popular option when it comes to website building tools.
