Wordpress, the company's flagship platform, is reported to account for more than 40% of websites on the internet, and WooCommerce, the company's e-commerce platform, is quickly becoming a prominent platform for online storefronts. The company has received nearly $1 billion in venture capital funding from investors including Wellington Partners, Schonfeld Strategic Advisors, ICONIQ Capital, and BlackRock. Automattic has a $7.5 billion valuation.
