A company that has created a papermaker’s platform for people to share their creations with the world has raised $5 million to accelerate its work on its product.
Camas Papermakers raised $3 million from investors including Bessemer Venture Partners, Greylock Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, Digital Asset Partners, Union Square Ventures, and Sequoia Capital.
“We believe that the Camas papermaking platform is the future of papermaking, and we want to bring it to the world,” Camas cofounder and CEO Adam Kincaid said in a statement.
“The Camas platform enables a community of designers, artists, manufacturers, and others to create and share their work online, without the fear of having their work taken down or their identities exposed.”
Camas is a company that sells its papermaking tools online through a partnership with Etsy.
It makes a variety of paper goods including pens, scissors, and markers, as well as paper packaging and accessories.
Camus is a family-owned company that uses its digital products to create digital artworks, which it sells through Etsy.
The company also makes the paper-wrapping products used in most homes and businesses.
Camuses goal is to build a platform that will enable users to share and collaborate online without the need to worry about their identity being exposed.
The Camas team says it plans to use the platform to create new content, such as tutorials for people who want to get their hands on Camus papermaking equipment, and to introduce a range of products that are not yet available on the Camus platform.
“Camus Papermakers is committed to building a product that is affordable for everyone, and is designed to be used by anyone, anytime,” Camus founder and CEO James Gatt said in the company’s announcement.
“Our aim is to deliver a product to the public in the same way we provide tools to our clients.”
Camus launched in 2017 and is focused on creating an online community for artists, makers, and craftsmen, Kincahane said.
The platform is available on both the Camuser and Camuser+ platforms, which allow users to buy and sell materials, as opposed to the Camsemer platform.
The two platforms will allow for collaboration and sharing.
“For a lot of people, it is hard to see their artworks in the world outside their house or studio and not have it in their catalog,” Kincahn said.
“It’s very easy for us to do a lot more than that.
We want to do that with Camus Paperbuilders.”
The company is also developing a Camus toolkit, which will allow users with a Camuser to easily create their own tools.
The toolkit will help creators create and publish their artwork, and users can publish their own designs and designs for others to download.
“What we want people to do is upload their artwork to Camus, and they’ll get an opportunity to have it made in their own house,” Kucas said.
In 2018, Camus received a $1.1 million grant from the Gates Foundation to develop the Camuses software, and Kucahane has been working with partners to build new products for the platform.
As part of the Cams software, the company is launching a series of workshops that offer free, one-on-one help with making paper.
In 2019, Camuses first workshop was held, with the help of artists from around the world.
Kucahs office has also been hosting a monthly workshop that provides a hands-on workshop for anyone to try their hand at papermaking.
“You can see that in the Camusers community, there is a real sense of community,” Kuckahane told TechCrunch.
“There are some really amazing people out there and we really want to make a difference.”
