Innovation House, March 2nd 2012:
We are proud to congratulate our Norwegian startup ForgeRock with $7 million in funding from the top tier VC firm Accel Partners! ForgeRock will be a part of a portfolio that includes, amongst others, Facebook, Groupon, Macromedia, Real and Stumble Upon.
Lasse Andresen, ForgeRock founder and CEO, believes the partnership is a crucial step in making sure the company realizes its aspirations: “In Accel, we believe we have found the right partner to help ForgeRock define the Identity technology category globally. We will use the funds to build further on the market traction and dramatic global growth we have demonstrated over the past 2 years”.
Way to go, ForgeRock!! Congrats to Lasse & Special Advisor Scott McNealy!
