What if Webflow just... stops?

@nderic Even though we’ve raised some funding early on in our journey as a company, I’m happy to say that we’ve retained 100% of the control of the company - and we’re not reliant on or beholden to any investors :slight_smile:

Webflow is a very stable and growing business (we can operate for decades without any additional outside investment), in very large part because of this awesome community and our wonderful and loyal customers who choose to place their trust in our hands. We take this responsibility very seriously, and our goal is to build a company that is around many decades from now which empowering tens (if not hundreds) of millions of people to create for the web.

We’re not looking for any quick flip or exit (believe me, we’ve had plenty of opportunities), because we feel that would fundamentally reduce the long term future potential of what we’re trying to build. And since we’re able to finance our operations, significantly expand our platform’s capabilities (Ecommerce, etc), and do all that on our own terms by partnering with our community and customers – why wouldn’t we? Very few businesses are able to be in the position we are in, and it’s not a privilege we take for granted.

In other words, Webflow is not going anywhere, so you’ll have to put up with us for a long time to come!
:wink: :sunglasses:

Wow, forgot I started this topic. Thank you all so much for your answers!

Personally, I trust Webflow and I truly believe in the way they work. As soon as I have the chance and get some clients, I’ll upgrade my account. I was just curious about this specific scenario. Thank you for clearing things up :slight_smile:

@MattBott :smile: I agree

So, it looks like the export doesn’t include CMS content. Is that right? As a gaming journalism site with a couple of hundred articles, if the worst were to happen and Webflow folded/got bought out/etc. how would we get all of this content off our Webflow site?

I know the CEO has said that this won’t happen, but then look at what happened to Jan after Facebook bought out WhatsApp. All the best intentions go down the pan when a board makes your work life more difficult than you can realistically expect to cope with.

Hi Matt, just thought I’d let you know we’re a BC partner and we’ve worked with one of the original founders of BC/Good Barry to build a replacement that can handle the more complex sites: https://www.siteglide.com/cms

We couldn’t find anything that offers WebApps with Secure Zones for example. So we built it…

Anyway, just wanted to point it out. There are quite a few other things that have come out of EOL so maybe worth joining the BC Facebook group if you’re not already in there.

We’ll be releasing a CMS export feature in the near future

This fall or year must be the most feature packed in Webflow history :grinning:
