“We are excited about this investment to support DigitalOcean as it enters its next phase of significant growth,” said Pueo Keffer, managing director at Access Industries. “We remain extremely impressed with the company and its management and believe that both are well positioned to transform the space for developers and SMBs in the years ahead.”

“We are delighted to extend our partnership with Access and a16z and see this capital as adding strength to our balance sheet enabling us to better serve our customers’ demand for our platform, especially during COVID-19 where we are seeing an acceleration of businesses transitioning to the cloud,” said Yancey Spruill, at DigitalOcean. “We are now freed up to focus on accelerating revenue growth, transitioning to free cash flow profitability in 2020 and positioning our company ultimately to be a public company.”

Founded in 2012, DigitalOcean has $300M in annual recurring revenue, serving more than 500,000 customers globally, with nearly two-thirds located outside the U.S. The company has created a niche in the $200 billion cloud market by catering to developers, entrepreneurs and small businesses.
