Amsterdam-based, provider of a multi-tenant WordPress cloud platform to create SaaS solutions with WordPress, announced that it has raised an undisclosed amount of funding in its Seed round.
According to Wijnand van Leeuwen, CEO and co-founder, the company raised the investment to ignite a new wave of independent SaaS initiatives globally. This includes hiring more developers, broadening marketing efforts, and building international brand recognition.
The investment was made by Amsterdam’s Arches Capital, a firm that invests in startup and scale-up companies with large growth potential.
Arches Capital comprises a group of business angels who look to bridge the gap between formal investors (VCs) and informal investors (business angels), by joining the best of both worlds. “We source, select and invest like a VC; we engage, care and inspire as the angel we are,” says the company.
It differentiates itself by bringing “superior” deal flow, professional knowledge, and a lower risk profile to the participating angel investors while supporting its portfolio companies from start to exit through follow-on investments.

Founded in November 2020 by Roger Rosweide, Sybren van Kesteren, Wijnand van Leeuwen, and Dexter Drupsteen, WPCS claims to be the world’s first WordPress multi-tenant cloud platform enabling anyone to build, manage, and scale websites or web-products.
With WPCS, users can develop a website as normally done using WordPress, instantly generate new websites based on their website product, and scale to thousands of websites – yet always managing one.
The company was born out of the founder’s own frustrations with the project-based business model of agency work, specifically building websites. SaaS companies typically work with multi-tenant cloud infrastructure that enable them to scale rapidly. When the founders were developing WPCS, they realised that they had built a platform that solves all scaling challenges of WordPress and enables developers to productise their skills by building SaaS solutions using WordPress.
Wijnand van Leeuwen says, “WPCS’ vision is to make technology readily and sustainably available to everyone. Making it possible for anyone to create a WaaS (Website-as-a-Service) or a WordPress-based SaaS without writing a single line of code is precisely the type of innovation that makes the web more accessible and scalable for corporations, SMBs, and emerging economies alike. Open-source is not only more innovative and secure than its proprietary counterparts, it democratises the web.”
WPCS has reached a sufficient level of maturity and stability with many projects already in production globally.
