Storyblok is the first headless CMS that works for developers & marketers alike.

It’s hard to believe, but 2022 is coming to an end. In the spirit of this year, we want to take some time to reflect on what happened at Storyblok and to appreciate some of the major achievements of our Partner Program. The technology industry has thrived largely over the past two years. 2022, in particular, was marked by taking software-as-a-service to the next level, building systems and supply chains with better visibility and resiliency, creating future-proof solutions and a sustainable future, and focusing on remote work. We are happy to have contributed towards building a better future with Storyblok’s CMS and our amazing team.

We hope that you had a year full of astonishing achievements and joy. For us at Storyblok, 2022 has been a success story powered by a company-wide growth mindset. A year in which we have so much to celebrate and be proud of:

Quote from Barry D'Arcy, VP of Partners @ Storyblok

As we all stop to reflect on 2022, I would like to take the opportunity to thank our many Agency and Technology Partners for your continued support in 2022. Our rapid growth in 2022 would have been impossible without your commitment to Storyblok. We’re excited to continue to build upon our partnerships in 2023 and build even more remarkable experiences together!
