Congrats to Will and team – Widgetbox Raises $12M

Always love it when I see good things happen to good people.  My good friend Will Price and the team at Widgetbox (now Flite) announced their new round of financing today – $12M from General Catalyst and Sequoia.  This story has all the makings of a great entrepreneurial turnaround – broken model, team perseveres, finds new model, explodes into new category and becomes a terrific growth story.  Really fired up for the guys at Flite!  Oh – and the pic here is of Will catching a monster steelhead on the Klamath river in November 2009 with guide Craig Nielsen and myself (a bit fuzzy due to snow/rain on the camera).  Not relevant to the fundraise or the company, but a cool pic so I thought I’d throw it into the post!

  1. Thank you, Jeff. I love that picture – perhaps my favorite fish of all time!

  2. Two unbelievable stories – neither of which are fish tales. Well done Will!
