Tumblr

Founded in 2007, Tumblr set out to give creatives a functional, free and versatile way to share their favorite content with an emphasis on visuals and multimedia.

Acquired by Yahoo in 2013, Tumblr currently attracts hundreds of millions of unique visitors who use the microblogging social network to follow hundreds of millions of blogs. The platform also offers ad purchases and blog themes to companies and users.

When we first met
Authentic. That's the best word to describe David Karp. He understands his users and what he has created. He didn't just stumble upon it by accident. When he first came to present to the partnership, listening to David articulate his vision -- of building a platform to give creative people an outlet for their talents -- was the investor/entrepreneur equivalent of love at first sight.
