Today is a great day for hackers, defenders, Bugcrowd as a company, and for Aussie founders with a dream to execute on the world stage. We’re very proud to have Blackbird Ventures, the same firm that pioneered the Startmate incubator where Bugcrowd began, taking the lead on our $15M Series B alongside existing investors Rally, Costanoa and Paladin. We’re just as pleased to welcome Salesforce Ventures and Industry Ventures to the family.

Earlier today we held the First Annual Buggy Awards hosted by our CEO and Founder Casey Ellis, our Director of Customer Success Abby Mulligan, and our Sr. Director of Researcher Operations Kymberlee Price.

These two groups of people are essential to our company success and are advancing the bug bounty and vulnerability disclosure space.
