Last week we closed our series D funding, where Janrain secured $27 million in funding, led by HighBar Partners as well as existing investors Millennium Technology Value Partners, Split Rock Partners, Epic Ventures, Emergence Capital, RPM Ventures and DFJ Frontier. We are honored and energized by the faith our investors have placed in us. With this investment, we have the opportunity to turbo charge our existing platform, bringing new and exciting capabilities to our current and future customers.

We couldn’t be more pleased with the opportunity to work with HighBar Partners. We also welcome new board members John Kim, Chris Kitching, Brian Peters and Jim Simons. With their support and the support of all our investors, we’ll continue to think towards the future, raising the bar in marketing solutions.

Next year, we look forward to leading this rapidly-growing marketplace, providing effective and efficient platform solutions. With a strong staff and great partners, we will continue to build the best company possible for our customers.

Larry founded Janrain in 2005 to address the challenge of managing user identity on the Internet. In its early days, Janrain drove the development of the majority of the open source OpenID protocol libraries that continue to be used today by organizations such as Google and Yahoo!, and was a founding member of the OpenID Foundation, a nonprofit governance organization for the industry. Prior to Janrain, Larry was a co-founder of Silicon Valley startups, a web-based service, and Four11 Corporation. At Four11 Corporation, Larry led the development of its RocketMail product, one of the first Internet-based email systems.
