Over the weekend, the Trello board signed a merger agreement with Atlassian. The deal was announced earlier this morning. It’s an exciting moment for both companies.
It wasn’t very long ago when we invested in the first and only round of capital at Trello. My partners and I were blown away using Trello and we were already big fans of cofounders Michael and Joel — as Spark is also investors in their other company Stack Overflow. I wrote up my thoughts at the time here.
In less than three years, the team at Trello created a very special company. A company focused on building beautiful products, a fantastic culture and true operational excellence.
It has been my absolute pleasure to serve on the Trello board. Thank you Michael and Joel and the rest of the Trello team. And congratulations.
