The Partnership

Squarespace founder & CEO Anthony Casalena started Squarespace out of his University of Maryland dorm room in 2004. From there, he bootstrapped the company profitability throughout more than five years before partnering with Accel on a $38.5 million Series A financing in 2010, where Accel’s Andrew Braccia joined the company’s board.
