J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
Matthew Prince and Michelle Zatlyn turned their five-day Silicon Valley Immersion trip into CloudFlare, a flagship member of the "unicorn club" with a billion-dollar valuation and over 2 million customers. Co-founded with Lee Holloway, the company now handles 5% of all Web traffic with over 500 billion page views per month. If not for one pivotal field trip in 2009, it would not have launched.
