The Cloudflare Workers Launchpad funding programme initially launched in September 2022 to provide up to US$1.25 billion of financing to startups building applications on Cloudflare Workers, a highly-scalable serverless computing platform allowing developers to build or augment apps without configuring or maintaining infrastructure.
In the days and weeks following, Cloudflare received a surge in interest globally from venture capitalists interested in joining the programme.
