History

The company name comes from the Toba Eruption, a volcanic supereruption theorized to have caused a global winter that supposedly caused a genetic bottleneck in humans. The company chose a stylized volcano for its logo. In its first year, the company reportedly invested about $150 million in start up software companies.
