what a day! (bugcrowd series b)

So, Bugcrowd announced some pretty big news today… We closed our Series B financing of $15M, announced some amazing new partners in Salesforce and Industry Ventures.

Here’s what it looked like on the inside…

For those who haven’t done this before, it’s the CEO’s job to raise cash — and today’s announcement feels like the “it is finished” moment for several months of challenging and exciting work.

The day consisted of a lot of social media and press stuff, a tonne of “no thanks” to bright eyed recruiters and real-estate agents (we do all of that in-house), a few client visits, and a visit and dinner with Art Coviello, former chairman of RSA and a phenomenal member of our board.

It was a fun day… Exhausting, exhilarating and elating are the three words that best describe it.

I feel like I’ve said thanks a million times — At last rough count I was up near 500 people who’ve pinged publicly and privately to congratulate us and egg us on into the next phase of growth — but before I crash out here are a few last thank you’s…

That’s it for now. Watch this space ;)
