    3 years ago when we led the round in SimilarWeb, I wrote a blog post, which was kind of an investment memo, explaining why I believed “SimilarWeb has all of the ingredients required for a growth company to excel”: A product that customers around the world need; proprietary data that creates large barriers to entry;…
