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!
