The problem we are solving is called WordPress. It is used in over 60% of all the websites on the Internet. If suffers from major security issue, over 200k Wordpress sites are hacked every year. The system was created 15 years ago, and hasn't been improved in years, causing a lot of headaches for the developers and designers that create and maintain those websites. Hosting provides are also very afraid of Wordpress installations because it usually opens backdoors to malicious attacks.


With Webiny, we want to solve that problem and give them a system that is secure, much easier to use and maintain, and to customize.

Why is our solution better?

- the only mobile-first open-source content management system
- the only system targeting the designers and developers who actually build the websites, by providing them with a set of tools to make their work much easier and more efficient
- the first CMS built on Facebook's React technology
- the only CMS which will support automatic upda...

By using our platform, developers and designers can build websites and custom made applications in half the time compared to WordPress.

Our insights:

We talked to several hundred designers and developers about their needs and frustrations. The founders have also been running a web development/design agency for 4 years, where they have built many websites for many customers. All that has given us the insight required to identify and validate the problems around web development.

Some of our key findings:

- in 90% of the cases websites are built by professionals for customers
- customers don't know how to do the technical maintenance once the site has been delivered
- developers spend way too much time reinventing the wheel when building custom apps
- there are over 10.000 twitter plugins just for WordPress that do the exact same thing
