John Furrier had a chance to sit down with Dean Drako, CEO of Barracuda Networks, to talk about the recent success of his company. Last month Barracuda Networks landed a $40 million dollar investment from some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley which included Sequoia Capital and Francisco Partners. Dean talks candidly during the interview. He smiles while he deflects the question “will you go public”?

During my meeting with Dean we also talked about entrepreneurship and how to grow your business without taking venture capital.
