Funding history:

In 2009, well before it had a name, the concept for CloudBees emerged through impassioned discussions between Sacha Labourey and François Déchery, that were supported and energized by long-time friend and advisor Bob Bickel.

CloudBees was formally founded in April 2010 with a talented group of engineering Bees (Adrian Brock, Ryan Campbell, Michael Neale and Vivek Pandey) as well as a financial, administrative and chief multi-tasking Bee (Laurence Poussot). The team was soon expanded by several acquisitions, most notably of InfraDNA, a company founded by Kohsuke Kawaguchi, and Stax, a company founded by Spike Washburn.

Fast forward. CloudBees now has a full hive of Bees and four main offices - San Jose (CA), Raleigh (NC), Richmond (VA) and Neuchâtel (Switzerland).

The Bees, from investors to employees, share a strong background in the open source business model and enterprise application development and deployment. Our vision is to provide a range of continuous delivery products, powered by Jenkins®, that enable enterprise organizations to accelerate time to market.
