See the story linked here. CloudFlare, a Venrock deal in which I led a Series A financing a few years ago, is, as they say, rocking and rolling. In the new age of everything digital and the long tail, while still long but now substantial in terms of Internet traffic, CloudFlare offers amazing benefits to website owners of all sizes, shapes, and purposes. The benefits are many including security, performance, analytics, and business continuity. But I’ll let the rest of the world tell the story. I’ll just say that Matthew Prince and Michelle Zatlyn are an exceptional founding team and thoughtful leaders. I base this conclusion on the fifty plus teams with whom I have worked over the past 25 years as a venture capitalist. As for me, I’m glad they shook my hand when I offered them an investment. As one of my mentors used to say, “when you find a deal that seems to just go and go and go without much assistance, just stand back and marvel” — which in the case of CloudFlare is very true. It’s up and to the right for CloudFlare.
