YC alum Paragon snags $2.5M seed for low-code app integration platform
Paragon automates API creation and development. The majority of application logic is built from the same common components, yet most companies build everything from scratch, spending weeks of engineering and thousands of dollars to build and manage simple features. Through Paragon, teams visually build API workflows and microservices in minutes, thereby helping companies build faster without being constrained by engineering resources. By using Paragon, teams build, ship, and scale 10x faster. In the long run, Paragon aims to become a marketplace for APIs and workflows as the single point of integration for 3rd party APIs. Just as Webflow automated frontend development and Retool automated internal tools, Paragon will be the platform to automate API development. CEO Brandon Foo previously founded Polymail (YC S16) and grew to 3K customers and profitability.
