As I’m sure you’ve seen, we announced today that we’ve closed our series B financing.  Khosla and Greylock, David and Aneel all bring invaluable experience as investors and operators to our team. Needless to say, we are excited. This investment gives us the capital we need to make our current customers more successful, broaden our product and platform, and accelerate our sales and marketing.
