Congrats to WP Engine
Nice to see the local investment climate in Austin is going strong. Spredfast raised more money, and so have several other companies, and today comes the announcement that WP Engine has raised $23M to invest in growth:
We now serve customers in 128 countries. This investment will also help us accelerate our global expansion and launch in new markets, like we did earlier this year with the opening of our London office to better serve our customers in Europe.
Delivering excellent, caring, world-class customer experience drives us. Our support team already receives high praise (we recently earned a Stevie Award for customer service), and as the number of sites we manage surpasses 300,000, we must continue to invest in delighting our customers. Our customers inspire us to volunteer our best every day.
As one of those happy customers, this is the kind of message I like to see. Investing, but not losing focus on what matters most! Additional coverage at the Austin Business Journal and TechCrunch.
