Mendeley raises $2 million, TechCrunch reports, we're happy as clams

We’re happy to announce that we’ve just closed a $2 million funding round, led by Stefan Glänzer (former chairman of, now in the same role at Mendeley), Alex Zubillaga (former Executive VP of Digital Strategy and Business Development at Warner Music Group) and ASI (the fund of Skype’s former founding engineers)!

Further investors are former COO Spencer Hyman and academics from leading US and UK universities. The news also made its way onto TechCrunch – click the image below to read the article:


Of course, this means that our work is only starting!

We have a new release scheduled for next week, and we won’t rest before we’ve turned Mendeley into hands down the best software and website for managing, sharing and discovering research papers. Just so you know!

  1. Do you have any plans to have a corporate enterprise version. Where it can be closed group for the company re-searchers. And then at the same for some projects be able to open some to the public to collaborate on.



    • Hi Vinay,

      yes, we are very much considering such a version, because we had a number of requests like this! I can’t give you an estimated date for availability yet, though.

      Best wishes,

  2. Yay for Money.

    I love Mendeley. Despite the small bugs and issues, it is still way better than anything else (Windows-based at any rate)… and I know it will just keep on getting better.

    Keep up the great work!
