Matthew Prince, founder and CEO of CloudFlare, joined our TechCrunch Beijing event this week for a wide-ranging chat with TechCrunch & CrunchBase editor Jonathan Shieber. During the conversation, he touched upon everything from Chinese market to company operations.

In case you’re unfamiliar with CloudFlare, it’s a service for website owners that offers protection from online threats, speeds up page load time, and optimizes content across devices. Launched five years ago at a TechCurnch event, the company is growing rapidly and raised $50 million in Series C round by December 2012, valued at $1 billion.

CloudFlare is seeking Chinese partners to expand businesses in the market, according to Prince. He added even though CloudFlare do not have a Chinese version, lots of clients here are using our service and China is currently CloudFlare’s second largest market.
